Is anyone else getting EXTREME carpal tunnal syndrome? I've had it for a long time (a few years) but it was always very tolerable - but for the past month or so, it is out of control. My hands are always numb and painful, I can't really grasp anything, and I'm having a problem doing just about everything!! I can't cook and forget about it when I'm trying to sleep! I wake up a billion times a night. I've been wearing braces to bed, but they are uncomfortable too, so I wind up taking them off - but then my hands start aching so bad. Sometimes it also goes up my arms - it feels like my bones are hollow up my arm - a throbbing hollow feeling...does that even make sense?

BUT, I still say it's worth it!

I haven't had many problems although I have found that if I don't sleep with my wrists perfectly straight at night they will throb and/or go numb. Somehow I've managed to train myself to sleep that way and they're much better.

Oh the joys of pregnancy. lol

I know exactly what you mean! I was diagnosed with CTS last year, and it's only worse now with pregnancy!

I find sleeping with the braces uncomfortable now too, as my hands swell during the night and they get tight. But sleeping with my arms around my body pillow seems to help since then I'm not bending my wrists anywhere.

I can't seem to find a daytime solution though, as I'm a typist in the hospital, and my job requires me to type all day. Luckily my supervisors are understanding, and don't mind if I stop often, but that's only temporary relief.
