I do.
Below I copied and pasted some info.

"" a condition caused by compression of a nerve where it passes through the wrist
into the hand and characterized especially by weakness, pain, and disturbances
of sensation in the hand and fingers ""

Carpal tunnel syndrome typically starts gradually with a vague aching in your
wrist that can extend to your hand or forearm. Common carpal tunnel syndrome
symptoms include:

  • Tingling or numbness in your fingers or hand, especially
    your thumb and index, middle or ring fingers, but not your little finger. This
    sensation often occurs while holding a steering wheel, phone or newspaper or
    upon awakening. Many people "shake out" their hands to try to relieve their
    symptoms. As the disorder progresses, the numb feeling may become constant.
  • Pain radiating or extending from your wrist up your arm to
    your shoulder or down into your palm or fingers, especially after forceful or
    repetitive use. This usually occurs on the palm side of your forearm.
  • A sense of weakness in your hands and a tendency to drop
  • When to see a doctor
    If you have persistent signs and
    symptoms suggestive of carpal tunnel syndrome, especially if they interfere with
    your normal activities and sleep patterns, see your doctor. If you leave the
    condition untreated, nerve and muscle damage can occur.

    I have it. Ouch!
    I had it from repetitive motion at work. The doctor gave my arm a jerk and sent me home with a wrist brace but the pain was still in my elbow. My boss fixed me up though. She said to take vitamin B6 every day. It worked.
