Hi guys did any of you or are any of you suffering with this? It kicked in about a week ago but has got really bad since yesterday. Even woke me up and kept me awake last night. I have a wrist support on one of my hands but think I'll have to get one for the other hand too. Any one any miracle things that worked for them? None of the advise on the net is helping, except maybe to try splinting my wrists?

Its when a nerve in your wrist and hands gets pressed on and leads to no feeling and pain in your wrists and hands! Its a bitch!!

I got it mildly during my pregnancy. I've no miracle cures I'm afraid. All I can say is it does go away eventually. Think DS was about 3 months when it went totally. Sorry I'm no help!

Oh god chilledout I thought it went straight away :weep Was really really bad last night, I was nearly crying (combination of tiredness as well I think as I couldn't sleep with it!) When its at its worst I don't know if I'd be capable of lifting a baby :eek

Seriously pet - GET TO AN ACUPUNCTURIST !!!! I had mine cured by acupuncture whereas the hospital wanted to give me an operation. If you need a reccy, i have one for a fantastic woman in Clontarf, Dublin. in teh meantime, physio can help too. PLEASE PM me if i can help at all. its a bitch, i feel for ya !!
