Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the palm of the hand, becomes compressed or squeezed at the wrist. This compression can result in symptoms such as numbness, tingling, weakness, or pain in the hand and fingers. Pregnant women are at an increased risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome due to hormonal changes that can lead to fluid retention and swelling, putting pressure on the median nerve.
