Is it possible to have carpal tunnel syndrome from carrying my baby for months now? My arm and hand gets numb.


Especially when I breastfeed my baby in lying position, my entire arm becomes numb and painful. I'm also having difficulty moving my thumb. Occasionally my middle and ring finger gets numb (pin and needle sensation) even when Im not carrying her.
Am I having the carpal tunnel syndrome?
What can I do? Im the only caretaker of my baby. Aside from my husband but he works.

Go to your Doctor so you can find out for sure. I had the same problem but it was just a pinched nerve in my upper arm. It was hard to pick up and carry my son with out the worry that my arm would give out. But it didn't. You can try taking a nice hot bath. This way your relaxing not only your arm but your whole body which my help if your stressed.  (+ info)
