Did anyone have really numb finger tips after giving birth? I had carpal tunnel during twin pregnancy and now find I have 3 really number finger tips

I experienced this exact thing! It drove me crazy. In the end, I decided to have surgery to fix it. Have you thought about surgery?

I think you should go and see a doctor just in case. They can at least give you some suggestions to help regain feeling in your fingertips. So sorry you're suffering with this!

I had it after my dc. I actually keep meaning to say to dr about it but its gradually eased off only get it now and again. My lo is 4 months. I have high blood pressure which got higher during pregnancy. Not sure if the two are related at all.

I was referred to a physio and was given braces to wear on each hand for a few months which sorted them out after my twins were born.

Have you had your vitamin b12 levels and iron checked since the birth? Tingling fingers can be a symptom of deficiency.
