: My doctor thinks I may have carpal tunnel, but I'm not sure. I have a sharp pain that shoots down my neck and left arm. It is also in my shoulder alot. It has a couple of times went down through my wrist and fingers. The doctor said it was probably due to pregnancy. I had a baby 9 months ago and this all started about 3 months after I had her. Does anyone think it's really carpal tunnel?
I also, got CTS AFTER my daughter was born. 4 months after....I didn't have the pain in my shoulder or arm but my hands,fingers,wrists all the time. i would go get tested for it,it is very possible. I am now pregnant again and due in a couple of weeks. Since I've been pregnant my hands have been fine,now these last two weeks I'm starting to feel pain again in my fingers...I guess my body is changing again. by the way, I have severe CTS in both my hands and have also had the surgery on both....Go get an EMG done to make sure. Good luck!
