<h4>Objectives</h4>Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most seen entrapment neuropathy. CTS is a complex syndrome arisen with entrapment of median nerve at wrist. Pain worst at night, paresthesia, hypoesthesia, paralysis, and muscle atrophy can be seen through nerve entrapment level. Besides, we see negative symptoms for sleep in our practice. It is known the effect of invasive and non-invasive treatments on the sleep. We aimed to search the effect of treatment of CTS on the sleep modalities.<h4>Methods</h4>In our study, the effect of injection treatment of CTS patients diagnosed clinically with electrophysiological methods in neurology clinic, on sleep modalities. After excluding the secondary reasons of CTS; patients responded to visual analog scale (VAS), symptom, and functional scales of Boston questionnaire (BQ-FS), Leeds Assessment of Neuropathic Symptoms and Signs, Pittsburg sleep quality index (PSQI), insomnia severity index (ISI), sleep hygiene index (SHI), Epworth sleepiness scale, Beck depression scale, and Beck anxiety scale.<h4>Results</h4>Twenty-nine patients (2 males and 27 females) were enrolled. After treatment, VAS, BQ-FS, LANNS, PSQI, ISI, and SHI both resulted in a significant reduction.<h4>Conclusion</h4>Sleep hygiene is affected negatively in CTS patients. A healing effect is observed on the quality of sleep impaired by the injection treatment of CTS.
