Conditions such as pregnancy,obesity, hypothyrodism, diabetes, arthritis, and traumua can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome. Outside of such preexisting factors, long terms spent engaging in repetetive motion of the hands, such as uninterrupted typing, can lead to symptoms of carpal tunnel.
Carpel tunnel is a combination of factors that increase pressure on the median nerve and tendons. Most often, the victims of carpel tunnel syndrom simply have a smaller carpel tunnel-a narrow, rigid passageway of ligament and bones at the base of the hand-than the average human. As stated in the previous answer, other factors include trauma or injury to the wrist that have caused swelling, such as sprain or fracture, heumatoid arthritis, mechanical problems in the wrist joint, work stress, repeated use of vibrating hand tools, fluid retention during pregnancy or menopause, or the development of a cyst or tumor in the canal.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is often the result of a combination of factors that increase pressure on the median nerve and tendons in the carpal tunnel, rather than a problem with the nerve itself. Most likely the disorder is due to a congenital predisposition – the carpal tunnel is simply smaller in some people than in others. Other contributing factors include trauma or injury to the wrist that cause swelling, such as sprain or fracture; overactivity of the pituitary gland; hypothyroidism; rheumatoid arthritis; mechanical problems in the wrist joint; work stress; repeated use of vibrating hand tools; fluid retention during pregnancy or menopause; or the development of a cyst or tumor in the canal. In some cases no cause can be identified.
Pressure on the median nerve and within the carpal tunnel, both of which can be caused by a variety of factors, is a cause; however, it is important to note that some are genetically predisposed to the condition, because of the fact that the carpal tunnel is too small.
Interestingly, there is no data that supports claims that repetitive work can cause the pain associated with carpal tunnel syndrome.
