…yes, I just wrote “dude.”
DUDE, it feels like everything from my left fingertips up through my left elbow is burning off. My right side isn’t too bad (I suppose b/c I’m a lefty?), but whoa, my left side… who knew that swelling and numbness could be accompanied by such a sharp burning sensation?
Has anyone else experienced this lovey side effect of pregnancy? I have a brace on it now, and it’s fine most of the day when I’m up and about, but as soon as I lay down for a nap or to go to sleep, the pain is on.
I obviously can’t take any NSAIDs or get a steroid injection to help… is a brace my only option? Do any of you have alternative treatments (chiropractic care, etc) that helped?
