for the past couple of weeks all ten of my fingers are in pain. they feel very stiff and i don't know if this is arthritis or carpal tunnel. Is this normal? I have gestational diabetes so i don't know if this has anything to do with it.

I have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel and it's really painful, it's not in my fingers though, it's my wrists, I just constantly have to keep ice pacs on them or their extremely painful, it's probab;y just swelling, but I'm not really sure.....good luck with everyhting!

thanks beth. i know that carpal tunnel affects the wrists that's why i am not sure why only my fingers hurt. I go to the dr. on tuesday so i will ask her then.

The water that can cause your fingers to swell can also cause carpal tunnell syndrome. The swelling presses on the median nerve which in turns affects the wrist and some of your fingers. Can also cause pain radiating up your entire arm. My fingers have been stiff and painful for about a month now, cannot feel the tips of my fingers sometimes and my wrists are SO tender - feel like they've been bashed with a sledgehammer! The one thing I found helped was an over the counter splint, especially in bed at night. Good news is that symptoms should disappear once you deliver and the swelling has gone :0)
