    I have a rather strange symptom these past few days that I can't seem to shake...I have constant pain in my right hand under the thumb and wrist, mainly worse at night but it's quite annoying! anyone else experience this and know if its pregnancy related? is it a circulation problem?

    Could be circulation, or maybe a pinched nerve? You could try massaging it gently and moving your fingers about. I sometimes get pins and needles in my right hand when I've been sleeping on my left side. No idea why!

    sounds like it might be carpel tunnel, i had it in my last pregnancy just in my right hand, its caused by a build up of water in your wrist which pushes down on the nerves and causes the pain, swelling in the fingers and pins and needles sensations, mine was always worse at night and 1st thing in the morn, see your doc, they gave me a support glove and strap thing and it did help , it had totally gone a week after giving birth x

    I had this when I was pregnant with my son. I was having heart palpitations, evidently due to the increased hormones, but both symptoms paired together... I was sure that I was going to have a heart attack!

    They never did find a cause for the hand pain, but gave me a carpel tunnel brace. They are inexpensive and you can find them at any place with a pharmacy. I really cannot remember if it worked for me though. :shrug:

    sounds just like carpel tunnel syndrome it effects the nerves in your wrists you get pain there and down your fingers. 9 times out of ten you have to wear a splint to bed. mention it to your mw or doctor. just give them a ring! x

    its called carpal tunnel syndrome i get it especially when been at college all day. the extra fluid presses on the nerves in your hand it will disappear when you have the baby
