I'll probably be reposting this later when more people are on

Every night for the last 2 ish weeks, as the day goes on, I find that my arms, wrists,m hands, and fingers, get more and more painful.

I wake up feeling pretty good, but by 8 PM, I'm reduced to tears.

The pain is from my shoulder through to all of my fingers. My elbow hurts as well. Sometimes my arm throbs.

It's both arms, but the right is definitely more painful than the left.

It hurts while moving AND at rest. Touch doesn't seem to bother it.

It's more of a joint/muscle pain.


I don't know what is going on. I haven't injured myself. It just hurts so bad almost all the time

Carpal tunnel or pinched ulna nerve. My mom had the EXACT symptoms & had to have surgery :( go see a dr if it doesn't get better after a few days of heat & ice.

I'm going to probably head to the docs tomorrow. Would Carpal Tunnel affect my shoulders?

It just hurts. Last night I cried. And i never cry about pain. Hell, I broke my back and never complained about it

My doc is only open until 12 today so I guess I'll have to wait until tomorrow or monday

It sounds like Carpal Tunnel:( I just found out I had it during this pregnancy because both of my arms would be in excruciating pain and go numb. My dr said I probably had it prior to pregnancy but because of the swelling it puts pressure on your veins in your arms. I've dealt with it for 4 months now and hate it. She said is should ease up once I have my baby. Good luck!

Quoting 1950's Limited:" Carpal Tunnel."


Probably this. Do you do any repetitive motions throughout the day, OP?

Define repetitive motion?

Work out every day
computer every day
Crochet
bake bread a few times a week (kneading dough by hand)
Rolling cookie dough and pie crust once a week or so

Though I haven't done those last two since halloween cause it has been too painful to even try

Typing on the computer will do it. Do you have one of those gel pads in front of your keyboard for your wrists to rest on? That is *supposed* to help with the pressure. It would make sense that your right wrist is more sensitive, assuming you're right handed and that's your mouse hand.

Yup all of the above will do it :( should probably take a break for a little while. If you notice improvement you know what to cut back on :( I'm so sorry.

Im a crochetter and it will make ur arms hurt even more than typing. Ive had the same thing and also has carpal tunnel prior to beong pregnant. The swelling and loosening of ur ligaments will cause nerves to be pinched. There isnt too much u can do but u should still mention it at ur next OB appt.
