Numb Fingertips - Normal??


I have had numb fingertips in my right hand for about 5 days now. It ranges from just tingling to being completely numb. No matter what I do it just won't go away. Is this normal?

I keep getting pins and needles in my left hand but it comes and goes. Do you think yours could be carpel tunnel related?

Not sure. I have heard about Carpal Tunnel Syndrom, but I always thought it involves some sort of pain in your hand/ arm, which I don't have. Going to see my doctor next Tuesday and will see what he says.

I have carpal tunnel and for weeks it was just pins and needles at night time but in the past week I've started feeling a little pain.

Is there anything they can do against this? Or do we just have to sit it out until after we had our little ones?

sounds like carpal tunnel to me too, it will go after baby is born its due to extra fluid pressing on the nerves, you can help by wearing a splint which keeps your hand at the right angle to stop as much fluid pooling, you can buy them at chemists or your GP can give you a prescription for one

Thanks :-) It is not really such a huge deal as long as it does not hurt. It just feels so funny, tried to do my nails last night and that was extra weird because of the numb fingertips

i had this when pregnant with my son, my middle finger on my left hand would go numb all the time! It was carpal tunnel syndrome - is nothing to worry about. Dont have this time round - yet!

I had this and went to see the occupational therapist last week. It is carap tunel but also water retention in my fingers. Just one of those things unfortunatly but you can get splints and they do help
