Pain in wrists and ankles

Last night I had a bad pain in my left wrist... upon doing nothing at all and my right ankle was hurting as well...
This morning I woke up and both of my wrists hurt... my arms hurt and my ankles are both hurting as well... A couple days ago while walking both of my hands fell asleep....

Is this bad blood flow? I don't really know what is going on and wonder if anyone else had this when they were 8 months pregnant

  • AS FAR AS THE PAIN IN YOUR WRISTS IT MAY BE CARPUL TUNNEL SYNDROME. I HAD IT WHEN I WAS PREGNANT W/ MY 1ST CHILD. THE DOC TOLD ME IT WAS BECAUSE MY BODY WAS RETAINING WATER.DO YOUR FINGERS GO NUMB? THE PROBLEM DID'NT GO AWAY AFTER I GAVE BIRTH EITHER. I WAS LATER SENT TO A NEUROLOGIST AND HE SAID I HAVE NERVE DAMAGE. YOU MAY WANT TO GET A WRIST BRACE.THAT'S WHAT I HAD TO DO AND ONCE I HAD MY BABY I STARTED TAKING MEDS..GOOD LUCK
