Carpal tunnel advice?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm stubbornly trying to keep working in spite of having pregnancy-induced carpal tunnel for over a week. Anyone have this symptom before? I have been chugging water and eating watermelon to try to flush things out. Any other advice on making it bearable? If it might only be another week or two, does it make sense to buy two wrist braces, one for each hand?

Thanks in advance!

The wrist braces helped me a lot while pregnant. I already had them, however, from a very intense time where I used to work. The most important thing for me was to wear them while asleep. You might be able to get by with an ace bandage. Good luck.

Thanks so much! I really like the ace bandage idea, I'll give that a try tonight. smile.gif
