    I searched a lot of Google before I decided to post on here. I've been experiencing joint stiffness and pain a lot lately...anyone else in the same boat? if so, do you know the reason/solution for this?

    It's to the point where I can't even bend my fingers without screaming in pain...especially first thing in the morning! They're definitely swollen a bit, which I think is expected, but I didn't know it would hurt so much?????

    I've also started developing this sharp pain in my tail bone or hip bone, whatever you call it!!

    any suggestions to reduce the pain would be sooo appreciated.

    Hi

    Have you checked this out with your MW/Dr? Those would DEFINITELY be your first point of call...

    Paracetamol is a safe painkiller to you during pregnancy? Have you tried it? Does it give any relief?

    I don't have issues with my hands but I do have hip and back and ankle stiffness which I've spoken to my MW about and she thinks is likely related to the laxening of ligaments but I did find an interesting thing on google when I searched your problem- I think speaking with your GP about it is probably the best idea but it may be carpal tunnel. Of course it's always best to see your GP as it could be a hundred other small issues.
