At the tail end of my (2nd) pregnancy I got pins and needles a lot in my hands, didnt mention it to anyone really as wasnt a big deal.
At my 6 week check I mentioned getting some pain / tingling in my hands but nothing major, doc said maybe CTS.
Anyways, dd is now 12 weeks and GOD my hands are sore, and my wrists. They go into spasm where they just sort of 'lock' with no pain, they tingle and they have shooting pains especially through the knuckles.
Does this sound like CTS? I have a GP appt on Fri.
I had cts during my second pregnancy and it was so painful especially at night. It reduced me to tears and I am normally v hardy. But a friend had it severely and was given these splint things to wear. Mine just went not long after DS was born.
It is good you are going to the GP. They will hopefully be able to say yes or no and help youout. Good luck!
Try and rest them as much as possible - splint them when you can, overnight etc. You could seek out a good massage therapist - sports massage or similar (I'm one and I've treated several ppl with CTS successfully so am not just talking out of my behind ) - some chiropractors treat it, too.
Really you want to try and keep on top of the inflammation as much as possible now - hopefully then you can catch the flare up before it escalates.
