It seems like the whole hand is numb, whilethe whole wrist hurts. If the pain is on the inside of the wrist,it is carpal tunnel synome. If on the outside, then it is tendonitis.

Is it possible to have bothé Carpal tunnel synome and tendonitis canbe caused by an injury. Especially when the tendons are strained while the carpal tunnelswells. I haven't had an injury.
