Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa any advise?

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello...
cramps are normal during pregnancy because of carpel tunnel syndrome... CTS is common in pregnancy. It happens when there is a build-up of fluid (oedema) in the tissues in your wrist. This swelling squeezes a nerve, called the median nerve, that runs down to your hand and fingers, causing tingling and numbness. You may also find your grip is weaker and it's harder to move your fingers. 
CTS usually happens in your second or third trimester. If you have CTS in one pregnancy, you are likely to have it in later pregnancies. Try to eat a balanced diet so you gain a healthy amount of weight. Aim to cut down on salt, sugar and fat. Drink plenty of water and eat at least five portions of fruits and vegetables every day. 
Eating foods high in vitamin b6 can help to promote a healthy nervous system.

Pearl Garg

take one spoon of barley seeds in three glass of water boiled it in the cooker...after two whistle slow down for 10mins on the gas....after that switch off the gas & allow to cool down...after that add rock salt or sugar with the one lemon....don't use this water after 4hours...!!! it's very useful in fever.. weeknes...water retention...!!!
