Carpal tunnel symptoms can be transient and can resolve on their own or with mild treatment or more often they can be gradually progressive until the condition is treated surgically and carpal tunnel release is performed. Intermittent symptoms that resolve on their own are usually the result of an episode, over use of the hand, or trauma to the hand and wrist, such as a fall on the risk that causes swelling or sometimes a medical condition. The most common being pregnancy, which is often a precipitant of carpal tunnel symptoms. When those conditions resolve, fortunately the symptoms often go away. If the symptoms persist and are progressive, then medical attention is indicated and people should seek out their doctor to ask about referral to a hand surgeon.
