A few months..: Unfortunately this is a common concern and usually is the result of additional swelling and fluid in a pregnant body. This causes many different nerve compressions, potentially, including carpal tunnel syndrome. Sometimes sleeping on an extra pillow will help....Take solice in the fact that most times it will resolve after delivery. ...Read more

Should I be concerned about a "pins and needles" feeling in my hands during pregnancy?

Should I be concerned about a "pins and needles" feeling in my hands during pregnancy?

No: Carpal tunnel syndrome is very common due to the swelling of the hands during pregnancy. The nerve compression is what gives you that feeling. It's annoying but will resolve sometime after the baby is born. Severe numbness or loss of function may indicate that the nerves are suffering damage and may require "release" which is a surgical procedure. ...Read more

This can enter into the tissue around the wrist causing carpel tunnel syndrome. This can be made worse by sleeping on that side. Some women need to wear a wrist guard designed for keeping the wrist in a "neutral" position to decrease symptoms of carpel tunnel during pregnancy. It's very common. ...Read more

Best to get checked: I do not find pain to be the presenting symptom of a mass or cancer very often, but it is possible. If you have not had a breast exam, mammogram and possibly an ultrasound or other studies, i would suggest now is the time to go get this done. ...Read more

Pins and Needles: Are you on any hrt? Nipple sensitivity could be caused by hormonal surges from estrogens. If not on hrt, it is hard to connect the parasthesias and the nipple sx. The pins and needles sounds like a "pinched nerve, " ( which could also send a branch to the chest and explain the nipple sx), but at age 66, it would be a good idea to contact your doctor, if this doesn't clear up, and have evaluation. ...Read more
