9 Simple Medical Tests to Check Your Health Right Now

This test can detect a professional problem of office workers, artists, and bikers — carpal tunnel syndrome.

Lift your hands up so that your forearms are parallel to your face. Try to reach the base of the palm with the tips of your fingers. If you can do this for 1-2 minutes, you are fine. But if you have tingling, numbness, or pain in your wrists or fingers, this can be a sign of tunnel syndrome.

Carpal tunnel syndrome appears when the neighboring tissues press on the median nerve. The pain and numbness will only get worse without the proper treatment.
