Intermittent Symptoms
Transcript

Having Carpal Tunnel Syndrome doesn't mean that symptoms will always be present. Especially early in the condition, symptoms are often intermittent. Most often we hear people start to complain of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome with symptoms only at night when they're sleeping. As the condition becomes more severe, the symptoms usually become more continuous. It's also not uncommon for people to have symptoms primarily with certain activities, typing for long periods of time, or repetitive forceful activities such as occupational exposure, construction workers, assembly line workers, and the like. So continuous symptoms are not always present, and not having continuous symptoms doesn't mean that you don't have carpal tunnel syndrome.
