Carpal tunnel syndrome during pregnancy 임신 중 수근 터널 증후근
Carp tunnel a-carpal tunnel, b-carpal ligament going to the finger, c-transverse carpal ligament, d-carpal ligament origin
Several ligaments and nerves are normally connected to each finger, starting from the wrist and through the palm of the hand.
A small compartment containing these ligaments and nerves is in the palm of your hand near your wrist.
The compact is called the carpal tunnel.
During pregnancy, when the wrist, palm, and fingers are swollen during pregnancy, the carpal tunnel also swells.
As a result, the ligaments and nerves in the wrists, palms, and fingers are pressed. So it can hurt your wrist.
Sometimes it can cause pain in the hands and wrists, such as a pin stab.
Fingers are stiff, and the joints of the fingers and wrists may become dull and stiff. Elevating your hands higher than your heart position during the day or at night with a pillow, etc., will reduce swelling.
It can be treated with a sprint as needed. Copyright ⓒ 2014 John Sangwon Lee, MD., FAAP
