: Hi. I am only 24 years old and i had a baby 2 months ago. I NEVER had this tingling in my fingers and arms (mainly in fingers), until : after i had my daughter 2 months ago. I have gone to 1 doc and he didnt even do a test on me at all. He just gave me some Arthrotec, an anti-steriodal drug, which i cant even take cause : i am breastfeeding. I am sooooo scared of losing all function of my hands, and having nerve damage that cant be fixed. I wont be able to feed or hold my baby, play my music, or work on the computer. : I have also been on hydrocodone for migraines for 3 years and i have wondered if this pain killer can cause CTS because it affects the nervous system? This tingling is getting worse and i dont have any money : to go anywhere right now. I will have to wait for at least 3 months. I am so scared. I need some help PLEASE!!!!! I am too young to have to deal with this crap. I need my hands!!! I have heard of taking antioxidants, : but which ones do i take? Can i take them while breastfeeding? What kind of pain medication can i get for this pain? Hydrocodone doesnt help with it. Has anyone heard of this tingling happening from having a baby? : Could it be because my circulation isnt as strong as it was when i was pregnant and it is getting back to normal? I also feel very weak, almost like i want to pass out and i am out of breath. Has anyone heard of : having a baby, or taking hydrocodone, to cause CTS or tingling in fingers? PLEASE help!!!!!!
It sounds like you need to talk to your doctor again with the weakness & feeling like you will pass out . For the numbness & tingling in your hands, have you ever tried wearing wrist braces at night . If not, try it & see if it helps. I know how scary this can be. Just recovering from carpal tunnel surgery on both hands. I am doing real well, but recovery does take longer than doctors said. Also, have you ever had your thyroid checked? It sometimes is tied in to cts & could also make you tired & weak. Best wishes to you! Hug your baby a lot, they grow up so fast. My "baby" is 22 years old & the time flew bye. Deborah P.S.
