The suffering which occurs at night time while sleeping. It awakens many patients at night, making them almost cry. Unlike numbness, this pain cannot be ignored. Even if a person falls asleep without any obstacles, he or she may still wake up at some point in time, experiencing this awful sensation. Most of the time, the pain takes place in the limbs, especially hands. This syndrome negatively impacts common sleep patterns.
People with carpal tunnel syndrome may stop sensing their fingertips for a while. It lasts more than a usual numbness and makes most patients worried. Except for being ‘pierced by thousand knives,’ the patient loses connections with some parts of his body. It makes it difficult to move: eat, walk, write, etc. The most severe situations occur when the patient’s numbness achieves the peak: even the needles are not sensed anymore.
