during my pregnancy with Abigail, the last 2 months, I had numbness and tingling along my right arm right to my fingertips. My midwives referred me to a physical therapist who discovered the cause of the numbness was a nerve pinched by tense muscles in my back (right rhomboid muscle). So, I was given massage and electroshock therapy... electrodes are placed on tense muscle, shocks make muscle tighten repeatedly til muscle is exhausted and relaxes. It actually worked. It really loosened me up and the numbness went away.
I sometimes get the numbness in a leg, but it never lasted long.
I've noticed just yesterday that I've been getting stiff in the same spot (upper right back, near shoulderblade) and this time I've only got 3 weeks to go, so at least it won't bug me for two months!
