Carpal Tunnel can happen anywhere in the body. It is scar tissue on the myofascia surrounding the muscles which inhibit the muscles from moving over each other properly and causes pain. In the instance of "carpal tunnel" in the hand, the median nerve would be trapped and squished somewhere in between those muscles. Try to find a Dr., physiotherapist, chiropractor, masseuse , who practices a therapy called Active Release Therapy. (lots of info on the net) Will fix you up in a few sessions. My chiropractor has cured my carpal tunnel and is working on plantar fasciitis (feet) and my neck. Wow relief at last. Jackie

: A couple of months ago I started getting numbness in forearm and hand - doctor indicated it was probably CTS and suggested use of splint. More recently I have been getting numbness also in upper arm. Could this still be CTS? If not, what (pinched nerve, tendonitis)? Treatment?
