Dr. Rohde explains when a woman should see a doctor if she suspects she has carpal tunnel syndrome.
I think that if you are having any numbness or tingling in your hands, it’s important to see your physician to make sure that this is carpal tunnel syndrome. It could be nerve compression in the neck. It could be diabetic nerve problems. And so it’s important if you have any numbness or tingling in your hands to get it checked out.
