  • Yes they help tons. Its just your swelling pushing down on that nerve. Get a brace, the ones designed for carpal tunnel. When your swelling goes down, it will go away. At least it did with me.

  • YES they help! I slept in them a lot because my pain was always worse in the morning. I had it my first pregnancy, but soon after delivering her it went away and I didn't have any problems my second pregnancy.
