carpal tunnel....ow

Sorry I havent been participating much, but the swelling in my hands has triggered carpal tunnel BIGTIME.

I vaguely remember this from last time, but not this bad. Im using those wrist splints to try to sleep at night, but I can barely write or type and cant put ANY pressure on my hands.

Anybody else in this boat?

Any suggestions?

I've had a little bit of swelling in my hands, but no carpal tunnel. I know that's really painful- hope you feel better!

I had it HORRIBLY with DD1. Anything that required me to turn my wrists (like turning a door knob) or apply pressure caused agony. I wore wrist braces on both hands day and night to keep them both straight. This helped. Thank goodness it went away when she was born and the swelling subsided.

I am sorry to hear that you are going through it. Not too much longer, hopefully.

I have slight swelling and lots of pain most days but only right when I wake up. Some days are worse than others.

ouch! I haven't had it but I know it's fairly common during pregnancy. Hope you can find some relief!

I have had tingling and numbness in my right hand and the doctor said it was carpel tunnel. No pain though.

I hope you find something that eases the pain!

I'm sorry carpel tunnel sucks. I get it from playing the piano all day everyday at work I don't really have advice just wear the braces & hopefully it will go away when the baby is born.:confused:
