Tingling Hands - Feet - etc...

I am starting my 24th week today. I have gained about 15 pounds...what might be causing my hands and feet (and legs or arms) to tingle? Does this last forever - is it even caused by being pregnant? Has anyone else had this and if so - what did they do for it that might have helped them? It's driving me crazy....(not that I am not already! ).....is this normal at this point of my pregnancy?

Tingling in the hands and feet generally means poor circulation. If it accompanied by vision disturbances, you could have a migraine. I would call the doctor and let them know. They may want you to come in.

No vision problems - no headache......just off and on tingling!

Re: Tingling Hands - Feet - etc...

I was told this was normal. I had terrible restless leg with this PG. They think it's hormone, nerve, or circulation related. Noone knows for sure, but it's definitely a common pg symptom. I also have developed tingling hands and a carpal-tunnel type symptom with this PG. Of course, if it's accompanied by severe swelling (not relieved by elevation) you may want to rule out pre-e. Otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it.

Siren1024 - Thanks! I have a lot of restless leg also! I have to be moving it all the time!!! I don't have a lot of swelling at all......my blood pressure is "great" according to the Dr.'s.....must just be normal. I did read some where that it's caused by tissue swelling from all the fluids.....(not severe swelling)...

Re: Tingling Hands - Feet - etc...

I too have been having these symptoms. It stinks! I would finally get comfortable in bed and then the stupid leg things would start. My hands tingle off and on too. Sometimes it feels like my arms will fall asleep. I asked my doc about this and she said it was circulation problems, and also the possibility of the baby crushing some nerves! I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL MAY!!!!

Packerfan4ever- I am due July 2nd.....at this point - I can't wait either. It's gotten to the point where if she is doing that (pushing on nerves) I only imagine this will get worse. On top of that I feel like a true space cadet!!!!!

Re: Tingling Hands - Feet - etc...

Oh, I'm 37 weeks now, and mine has been seriously crushing some nerves. I have this one persistant spot in my ankle and foot that burns and ITCHES ALL the time.

My feet have started itching and tingling really bad when going to bed. Probably circulation returning. And now she's pinching a nerve that runs from my lower abdomen and pubic area down into my inner thigh.

I'm so ready to get her out of there. LOL.
