    Default Sore joints in fingers and toes??

    Hi Everyone
    This is an odd symptom I have recently started getting and not sure if anyone else has been getting the same thing?
    I am 33 weeks pregnant and in the last week the joints on my middle and thumb have been sore when I make a fist with my hand. The pain is slowly spreading to my other fingers and I just noticed my toes are sore too when I flex them.
    I have never had this pain before so am figuring its from pregnancy (swelling/fluid?) but thought I would ask you all if this is a common symptom. I haven't read anything on this hence why I am here!

    Thanks and looking forward to the sharing!

    I've had sore wrists and fingers which was new to me too. Damn carpal tunnel syndrome! My feet have been ok so far. It's sounds like swelling in the joints. Speak to your GP if you have any concerns and watch for excessive swelling.

    Hi

    You may also want to get your Vitamin D levels checked... I had this after the birth of my first child and I could not believe how much my joints were aching. It all started in the fingers and soon spread to my elbows so I went to the doctor and she ran some blood tests and it showed I was lacking in Vit D, which she said explained everything.

    Best of luck, I hope you get some relief
