Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Hi ladies... I have just been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome due to pregnancy. My hands are sore and stiff during the day and painful at night, and they go numb often. Does anyone else have this and has anything you have done helped? My doctor says it will go away after I give birth, but I am 33 weeks, so that is not for a bit. Thanks!!

hi there i feel your pain, ihave had carpal tunnel syndrome for quite some time and it has gotten worse in the last 8 weeks. i am now 36 weeks. best advice i can give you is to wear a wrist brace at night, i found a really good one at walmart. specifically designed for carpal tunnel, its beige and really stiff. it keeps your wrist from moving. i used to wake up in tears cause the numbness would actually be painful. try to limit your wrist or hand movement during the day. i know it seems impossible. wish you the best.

Sorry I don't have any advice, but I have it as well. I didn't know untill a few weeks ago that it was pregnancy related. I couldn't beleive it!! I wasn't saying anything about it to anyone because i figured I would have to get it checked out and have an x-ray which I thought I would wait untill after having the baby to do. I was very relieved to find out it is pregnancy related.

i'm only 28 wks and have had it for more then 5 weeks. and OMG the pain at night! my hands literly fall asleep at night. At first i thought is was to do with the HBP i have. some of the pain went a way when i started taking the meds for the hbp. It was horrible i thought i was a boxer at night getting into fights all the time. it takes 10 minutes to get proper movement from them. ma__sage does help as well as the wrist bands and the magnet braclet.
