There are other conditions that can mimic the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome fairly closely. Things like nerve compression in the neck or in the shoulder can produce numbness, tingling, and even pain in a similar distribution to the carpal tunnel. Therefore, assuming that symptoms are the result of carpal tunnel syndrome is not the best policy. If you have these symptoms, if they're troubling and if they persist, it's important to seek out medical attention and an accurate diagnosis to be certain that you know what the condition is, because that will lead to proper treatment.
