Did You Know?

  • More than 20% of all pregnant women experience Carpal Tunnel Syndrome symptoms.
  • Most women who experience pain, numbness, and tingling in the hands for the first time due to pregnancy have no idea that they have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
  • Carpal Tunnel symptoms during pregnancy tend to increase in the second and third trimester due to fluid retention.
  • CTS symptoms usually decrease gradually following birth, as swelling and weight slowly subside.

For most women, it is the first time they have experienced CTS symptoms and most pregnant women are not sure at first what it is. For this reason you should discuss your symptoms with your doctor to determine if CTS is the cause. Your doctor can recommend treatment to safely alleviate the discomfort experienced during and after pregnancy.

Some women can experience a slight increase in symptoms immediately following birth of the baby. This is mostly due to an increased use of your hands when carrying the baby, frequent repetitive movement when making bottles, doing laundry and dozens of new tasks that come with a new born.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs because of the median nerve compression in the Carpal Tunnel [link to about CTS] During pregnancy, the Carpal Tunnel can become swollen, along with many other parts of the body. It is the pressure on the nerves from swelling that causes the tingling and pain symptoms.

As you sleep your hands naturally bend (or flex) and that simple movement can increase pressure on the median nerve and awaken the CTS sufferer due to the increased sensation of numbness and tingling. A new, revolutionary wrist splint that is safe, drug free and hypoallergenic is ,NightWrest.It is specifically designed to relieve nighttime CTS pain symptoms so that you can rest better and sleep throughout the night.
