So, after dealing with pregnancy carpal tunnel, I've had wrist pain since little one entered the world. It is awfully painful and makes everyday tasks really difficult. Unfortunately, the normal route of treatment (anti-inflammatories followed by cortisone shots) is not possible due to breastfeeding. Orthopedist said, with the severity of the swelling I'm having, he would start with the shots. Sigh. He gave me thumb spicas (wrist guards with thumb stabilization) to wear as much as possible (not very possible when doing anything with the baby).
Anyone else suffering with this?
