Pregnancy carpal tunnel...help please

A couple months ago I noticed my hands were having issues. I go to a chiropractor for hip, pelvic and sacrum pain and mentioned to him the problem. He's been working on my hands too. When I've mentioned it to my docs they basically ignore it.
I've gotten wrist braces, prop my hands at night, increased my fluid intake and nothing is helping. My hands are so swollen and hurt for hours after waking. The pain shoots into my elbow now too. I'm only 23 weeks along and have a way to go yet.
Please tell me someone has found some relief that I haven't heard of yet?
