A number of nerves with the function of helping you move and feel travel between the hand and the spine. The median nerve carries sensory signals from the palm, as well as parts of the thumb and first three fingers. This nerve, along with some tendons, passes through the carpal tunnel at the base of the hand. Repetitive stress, trauma, or overuse, may cause the tendons to become irritated or enlarged. The median nerve may then become compressed. This is called carpal tunnel syndrome. It is usually marked by numbness or tingling in the fingers as well as shooting pains that may travel up the arm.
