Anyone heard this gem?
“Corporal” tunnel syndrome … for carpal tunnel syndrome.
I even found one hit for “corporeal tunnel syndrome”, but it’s a bit nasty.
It was just reported to me by one of my best data collectors.
I’m still hoping to find a context where “Carpool tunnel syndrome” might be naturally born.
