ok- I think i've posted this in 3rd trimester before....but i really need some help here
I've tried EVERYTHING- and no matter what i do i wake up with my hands literally STUCK in a claw like fashion and they hurt so bad they put me into tears for at least an hour every morning.
My doc just tells me to stop eatting salt....and I've cut out a lot of my salt intake- but seriously...unless I'm going to eat nothing but salad for the next 2 weeks- almost everything has salt in it, and i cant imagine a little bit thats in normal food causing me this much pain.
I've literally tired everything except sleeping upright...which i simply cannot do. Obsessively i cant sleep on my back, I've tried wrapping my wrists at night before i go to sleep, i sleep on my side and never on my hands- i leave them out in front of me and flat, I've tried propping them up with pillows- which is uncomfortable but doable-but no matter what I do I wake up with my hands in a fist and the worst pain ever.
Has anyone tried anything else that might help? I dont see a difference between wrapping my hands and a brace....do they work? Should i try wrapping my hands tighter? I dont know what to do......
