I started having carpal tunnel syndrome about 4 weeks before my due date, just tingley and numb fingers occasionally, nothing painful. Now it's been 6 weeks since my son was born and it has only gotten worse over the last few weeks. I have pain in my wrists and arms and my hands are partially numb all the time. Soemtimes I can't even change my son's diaper because it's too painful. Has anyone ever experienced this? Does it ever go away?? I've read it goes away, I've never heard of it getting worse after the baby is born. I see the doctor on Tuesday.Answer Question

I had carpal tunnel surgery on June 10th not after having a baby though and I am still dealing with some pain and scar tissue I'm trying to break up I still need to have the other wrist done but I didn't just have carpal tunnel release they had to release on the side of my wrist also where you would bend your wrist I wouldn't recommend having bith done at once wear wrist braces they do help and I take naproxen for mine

Not every case of CTS is handled surgically... sometimes it can be treated with a cortisone injection and a wrist splint.... every case is different. Ask to see an ortho that specializes in Hands, don't fool around and let your PCP treat it!!
