Back in 2013, actress and business owner Jessica Alba thought she was having a stroke. Her arm went numb and she had strange sensations in her face and neck. An MRI ultimately revealed that she had carpal tunnel syndrome, a relatively common condition that usually comes with pain and tingling in the hand, wrist, and arm. It’s caused by a nerve being twisted or under too much pressure. For many sufferers, the disorder is associated with too much computer time, which may well have been the case for a busy businesswoman! Carpal tunnel can be treated with medications, braces, stretching, and, in some cases, surgery.
