Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Symptoms â€“ Basic Tips For Pregnant Women That are Suffering Of This Syndrome During pregnancy, a woman`s body accumulates a lot of extra fluid; some of this fluid can cause pressure on the nerves which pass through the wrists to the hands and the woman finds that she wakes up in the morning with pins and needles in her fingers. Holding a pen or a telephone for even a short period can be very uncomfortable. Most women find that their carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms disappear a few weeks after the birth of their baby. Some carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms for which you need to be aware are: -
pain feelings in your forearm, your palm or your wrist; pain feelings that increases when you are using your wrist or your hand more; you may feel weakness in your thumbs; you may find it difficult to grab small objects, like the steering wheel of your car or even a doorknob; tingling feeling that you sense in your fingers, mostly the thumb and middle fingers; numbness feeling that you sense more at night than during the day, sometimes so powerful that it wakes you up. In such moments, rub your hand to get relief;
When these tunnel syndrome symptoms appear try: -
swinging your arms vigorously for a few minutes first thing in the morning; keeping your hands raised as much as possible during the day; avoiding writing, using a keyboard or being on the telephone for any length of time; putting your hands in a basin of hot or cold water; if you really cannot stand the discomfort, ask your doctor about having splints.
