Chronic sleep loss is a common symptom of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). For many people the first symptoms to show up from Carpal Tunnel is that their hands “fall asleep” at night during sleep causing them to wake up.
Things in medicine are not always linear, in fact, the body’s physiology is rarely linear. In the case of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, it is cyclical. So, the key is how long does it take to break the cycle.
