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?
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!
