I noticed that the three fingers on my right hand were starting to be tingly and numb during the day... then all of the sudden i would wake up in the middle of the night with the worst burning pain going from my fingers...down my hand...all the way up to my elbow.
I thought that maybe my arm just got up under me and cut off circulation. so I tried making sure my arm stayed straight and not under me but i would still wake up with the pain. My mom said it sounded like carpel tunnel...so i started wearing her wrist brace and sure enough it has fixed it.
When i spoke with my doctor about it he said its common. He told me that the swelling causes pressure on the nerve and either gives the person carpel tunnel or makes a light care of it way worse.
Sooo I was wondering if its so common if anyone else has had something similar happening to them???
I've had it for about a month...the nighttime braces I got just made it worse so I just wear a light brace only on my right wrist when I'm working (all computer work). I have to have DBF open sodas for me, lol, since I can't grasp things very well some days but the light brace seems to help alot.
Thank you Alethia for my gorgeous siggy!!

I had it badly with my son and it was so annoying and painful. This time around I've only had a little bit of numbness when I spend too much time using the mouse at my computer. It does go away pretty quickly after you have the baby.
