Water retention? Carpal tunnel? Please advise.

Since yesterday morning I've had the following problems: I got out of bed and the soles on my feet felt swollen and hurt when I stepped on them. My hands have no strength in the mornings and feel stiff and balling them to a fist hurts on the joints and knuckles.

There's no obvious swelling to be seen and neither the feet nor the hands feel heavy or warm. It gets better as the day goes on, but never ceases completely.

Does anyone know what this is? I drink a lot of water (2-3l a day) and don't eat much salt, etc.

I've got something similar (I'm 31 weeks pg though) and it seems to just be water retention.

Maybe look on NHS direct website?

As its just started first thoughts would be an achy virus perhaps? sounds a bit odd.
