Anyone Else With Gestational CARPAL TUNNEL

Aaaah! I seem to be getting every weird pregnancy symptom in the book. Anyone else have carpal tunnel from being pregnant, or am I the only one? I have to wear a support splint on my left wrist and its getting frustrating. Anyone know when this will go away? Soon I hope...

I have been suffering from it now for about a little over a month - last night I thought I would start sobbing from the pain. Never had it before pregnancy and it only comes on at night. My midwife doesn't seem to care about it which angers me cause I mentioned about the splints and she had not heard of this in pregnancy. My twin sister suffered terribly from it in pregnancy too...I think it does go away but not until after baby... BTW I am 27 weeks so have many more weeks of pain ahead. All the best to you...

Thanks Karen... my doc suggested that I get a splint and though it takes a while to get used to it really relieves the pain. I wear it to bed too because sometimes I sleep on it funny and it makes it worse. I bought my splint from Walgreens for about 14 bucks.
