thumb and finger pain, do i have carpal tunnel?

Today i have had three epidodes of extreme throbbing pain randomly in my right thumb and the finger next door. The pain is really bad and i am unable to move my thumb or finger, it lasts for about 15 minutes then slowly subsides.

It has happened before, a few times when i was pregnant 9 months ago and also a few times before i was pregnant, but these episodes occured at night time.

Ive been looking at syptoms of carpal tunnel sydrome, and it says you get numbness, and it can radiate down your arms, but i dont have any of this.

Re: thumb and finger pain, do i have carpal tunnel?

Pain comes first, then numbness. As the disease progresses, you start to have less pain and more numbness. Since you've recently been pregnant I would say you are in the early stages. Get it checked out if you think you need to.
