Carpal tunnel syndrome

HOPEWELL, VA (WWBT) - Dr. James Bush is helping people with carpal tunnel syndrome.

Symptoms include numbness and tingling in the pointer, middle and inside half of ring finger on the palm side of your hand.

Certain tasks like typing, using a computer mouse, holding the steering wheel and repetitive hand/wrist motions can cause the symptoms.

If symptoms persist, prescription medications are available as well as interventions by an orthopedist if needed in severe cases.
