  • I have never heard of carpel tunnel syndrome being a symtom of pregnancy...

    My mom had it and my cake decorator got it and had to have surgery for it. My mom had it due to constantly moving her wrists and neck, she was a cashier, she had to see a chiropractor and wear a wrist brace for months, I managed a bakery and my cake decorator had it.. obviously from using her wrists.
    I find this interesting that you could have it during pregnancy and then it will just go away.

  • Carpal Tunnel is not a "symptom" of pregnancy but can appear in pregnancy and disappear right after birth. I had it with my first when I was working on a computer most the day. It was awful, especially in the mornings. As soon as I had my daughter it was instantly gone.
