My wrist hurts at night and feels numb. Why?

23-24 weeks pregnant, Health advice, Questions/answers

What’s happening, Marie? I can’t pick up a plate because my wrist hurts in the evening. I wake up frequently because I feel numb. Do I have carpal tunnel syndrome? I am 26 weeks pregnant, and I must say that I don’t really like this feeling.

Lucie


Lucie, you are right to think you have carpal tunnel syndrome. However, only your doctor can make this diagnosis and would need more information. That said, I can give you some data and information about the topic to help you understand it. I can also help you do things to slow the appearance of the unpleasant symptoms and limit their impact on your daily life. Please read my article Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Talk soon,
