Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Hello...
Fluid retention during pregnancy especially third trimester puts more pressure on the carpal tunnel, which runs from your wrist to the bottom of your palm. Most likely, the pain will get better within a few months of your baby's birth..
some tips are- Do motion exercises that stretch your wrist. Apply ice for pain. Avoid repetitive wrist and hand motions, or positions or activities that make pain or numbness worse. Wear a wrist splint if your job requires repetitive motions. If computer work is causing pain, adjust your chair or keyboard height to change the position of your wrists. Wear a wrist splint to bed if you have pain at night. It keeps your wrists from curling while you sleep, which contributes to pain... If You have numbness, tingling, or pain in your hand or wrist or You have pain or strange sensations traveling up your arm to your shoulder then meet your doctor..
