Tingly hands and forearms

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
DS and I were out running errands, and my fingers/hands/forearms started getting tingly, all of a sudden. I am 40+1. I don't have any swelling. I don't feel any pain in my arms/hands, but it is kind of disconcerting. I thought I maybe got too thirsty or hungry or hot, as we were out running around and hadn't eaten lunch. Now, I've had lunch and water, but they are still somewhat tingly.

When I was pregnant with DS, I had some of the carpal tunnel symptoms for quite awhile during the pregnancy. This time around, even though I do more computer work than I did then, it hasn't seemed to be an issue. It seems weird that it would come on so late in pregnancy.

Any thoughts???
Thanks!

Do you have a headache? I had similar symptoms & someone suggested it might be the start of a migraine.

I started getting this a few months ago. It was pretty bad until I figured out to sleep with my top arm laying on a pillow. Since starting this I haven't felt it at all during the day.

Thanks, gang! Awhile after I posted, the tingling actually did go away. Luckily, I didn't get a headache...phew! I'm not sure if it just took longer for my food/water to kick in and help make me feel better. I was kind of freaking out, but I knew I didn't have any swelling...so I wasn't sure what it could be. Thank you, mamas!
