  • It could be stress. My left arm and hand started out like that and got worse. It was at the point my hand had no grip. My dr put me on anxiety/stress med. Within 1 week the numbness was gone. So mine was stress related.

    I googled it and found this.  It may be nothing but can't be too careful

  • with your other health issues, i think you should mention this to your dr.
    if it is carpal tunnel, then you should see a chiropractor. personally, i believe every one should see a chiropractor.
    congratulations on your pregnancy!
