Re: Severe Swelling and Numbness with Pregnancy
oh lord! i know EXACTLY how you feel! i've been having the same issues since i was about 2o weeks..i think, it's been so long. i'm now 39w2d. it's carpal tunnel syndrome. my ob says it's very common during pregnancy and goes away after delivery. it's by far the WORST thing i've had to deal with this entire pregnancy! way worse than morning sickness, fatigue, and all of that! i've been in tears several times from the discomfort, pain, redness, and numbness. not to mention sleepless nights b/c it acts up worse when i'm trying to sleep between going to pee10 times a night! i bought wrist braces that hepled some but honestly nothing makes it stop completely. all i can say is i know how you feel all too well and this carpal tunnel is the main reason i cannot wait to have my son so my hands and arms can feel normal again.
