So yesterday my right wrist and hand were reallllllly sore. I thought maybe it was from the rain we had all weekend. But the pain didnt really go away and I started getting numbness in my fingers. This is similar to the carpal tunnel I got after 30 weeks with DS1, so I put my wrist brace on last night. Having it on hurt more for some reason... I kept it on as long as I could stand it and then took it off. I woke up several times in the night in agony and numb hands/fingers. I tried the brace for a while Finally got back to sleep and woke up sleeping on my right side and in more agony. It took a while to get the numbness to go away completely.
Today it was ok while I was teaching and not doing a lot with my wrist... I started typing and working on the computer at the end of the day - 15 minutes later my fingers were numb again. and thats WITH the wrist brace on. It still hurts, so I left work early and didnt do a lot once it started going numb again.
What should I do? Is there any point of calling my doc? Can they do anything? Its not unbearable pain right now (although at 4am it seems to be) and its just limiting at work... I know I can take tylenol if necessary, but otherwise what can be done? Any ideas for natural remedies?
also - I'll be lurking today/tonight, but may not post as typing sucks right now.
