    :

    Also known as one of the versions of repetitive stress syndrome. It's usually caused by repeating the same motion over and over. Basically, the muscles in the wrist swell due to the motion and pinch off the nerves to the hand. Requires surgery in most cases. Causes weakness, loss of feeling or extreme pain in the wrist and hand.

    Carpal = wrist
    Tunnel = The muscles make a sort of tunnel that the nerve bundle runs through.

    Hope this helps!
