Does carpel tunnel syndrome cause wrist twitches?


Answer by  dramjbell (74)

Yes, it certainly can. However, "carpel tunnel syndrome" is a very specific condition, causing compression of the median nerve in the carpel tunnel. Many conditions can cause hand twitching/pain/tingling.

Yes. The syndrom is an impingment of the motor and sensory nerves of the wrist and can cause twitches (usually you accidentally drop things).

I'm not a doctor but I've got the carpel tunnel and sometimes the pain causes me to twitch. Maybe that's the same thing for you too.


Answer by  Rose (6804)

Yes, carpel tunnel syndrome can cause wrist twitches as well as pain and swelling in the wrist. Try illiminating some of the repetitive movements that have resulted in your condition.

Yes it does. In fact, carpel tunnel syndrome effects the elbow and causes pain in the region which will lead to direct twitches of the wrist. If you do bikram yoga, there is a posture that helps recover from this.
