When pregnant with DS I got carpal tunnel syndrome at around 20 weeks then went away about 4 days after he was born. I am 22 weeks pregnant and its back with vengeance. Wake up all night with numb buring hands. In the morning I cant close my right hand for awhile because its so stiff and SO painful. I wear the splints, they do seem to help but my hands still go numb. I cant even brush my hair without my right hand going numb. Driving my hands go numb. What has anyone else done to relieve the pain? Are steroid injections allowed while pregnant?
