If you buy it, make sure you look under the "color" option to select whether you want it to be a left brace or a right brace. I got into a wicked email fight with them about mine and I had to get Amazon involved. This was because when I selected it off the main search page on Amazon it was listed as "left" (what I needed) it did not say anything about options in the description or in the ordering box. I didn't care about color so why would I click on the color options box? They've changed the picture since but it was also a left handed picture when I got mine. So, labeled left, picture left, and no instructions stating that I have to pick a hand. Grrr. Still makes me mad today. The product is great though.
For regular carpal tunnel:
Walmart has a few braces that will work nicely, I would recommend one that extends further down your arm to keep you from forcing it to bend in your sleep. MedSpec on Amazon also has a few nice models that do that.
'Scuse the bad typing, please. 'Breast is Best' but not when browsing the internet!
I dealt w/ carpal tunnel before my babies...but it was never really severe. However, holy moly, when I was pregnant with DS it totally flared up beginning 2nd Tri and lasted all the way to the end. Although, my hands never went numb, my wrists would just seize up on me and I wouldn't be able to bend/flex them and then I would get the tingles and shooting pains from my wrists into my my hands. It only happened at work and I would have to stop typing (worst trigger for it), put my hands in the air and start working them around and eventually they would start to give again. So far this time, it has started again but doesn't seem as intense.
I feel for you ladies. Mine is really bad today. it happens daily now. the go numb at night and then the whole next day they are sore. I can't make a fist or grasp anything that tight. They hurt so bad
