My son is 4 months old and for the past few months my wrists are killing me! They seem to be getting worse. Has anyone else heard of this?

I talked to an Occupational Therapist because I have it bad, and some days are still bad. She called it de Quervian's http://arthritis.webmd.com/tc/de-quervains-disease-topic-overview
Mine started a few months before I had the baby (from the joints loosening), and she's close to 4 months now. I have more of the better days than bad, but the bad days are really bad. If it goes a few more months I'll probably go see the OT again and get the cortisone shots. The biggest help is a wrist splint or ace bandage to immobilize the thumb, particularly at night for me. Hope this helps.
