The compression of the median nerve—a main nerve—causes carpal tunnel syndrome. The median nerve runs from the forearm, through the wrist, and into the hand. The median nerve exists in an arm cavity called the carpal tunnel. When this nerve gets squeezed at the wrist, it results in pain and numbness that affects the hands and wrist.
Studies show that women with fibromyalgia are much more likely to develop carpal tunnel syndrome.
