Cheiralgia Paresthetica, also named Wartenberg’s Syndrome, is the name given to an irritation of the superficial branch of the radial nerve as it travels through the dorsum (back) and lateral (thumb) side of the wrist. It presents as pain, numbness and/or tingling over the dorsum (back) and lateral (thumb) side of the wrist and hand. Cheiralgia Paresthetica occurs either via direct trauma to the area or via compression of the superficial branch of the radial nerve by an outside force such as a bracelet or watch.
