Can't last my day with out it

Carpal tunnel, well I did really experienced this when I was pregnant, especially during my last few months of pregnancy, can’t exactly remember what month did it started though. Pain in my two hands is horrible, especially in the morning, I couldn’t close my hand, and it takes me few minutes to be able to close it a little bit and my hand look sore. Since I wasn’t blogging yet when I was pregnant (didn’t know about it yet) but I’m always on the computer, computer is like my best friend, it keeps me connected to the world. I told my Obstetrician about my problem and if there’s a carpal tunnel relief and the first thing he asked me was “are you always on the computer?” well what more could I say, I know I was having a hard time typing and it makes it worse but I keep on doing it. I even had a problem with house chores, its not that I don’t want to do it, even though I had some lazy days sometimes, but I’m just afraid things like plates, and other kitchen stuff will fall off from my hand because I don’t have a good grip anymore.

So what is carpal tunnel syndrome anyway? Well according to this website carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful disorder of the wrist and hand. The carpal tunnel is a narrow tunnel formed by the bones and other tissues of your wrist. This tunnel protects your median nerve. The median nerve gives you feeling in your thumb, and index, middle and ring fingers. But when other tissues in the carpal tunnel, such as ligaments and tendons, get swollen or inflamed, they press against the median nerve. That pressure can make part of your hand hurt or feel numb.

No wonder when I couldn’t bare the pain anymore I just want to have a carpal tunnel relief because its really getting into my nerve already, so I finally did what my obstetrician had told me to do, use a smart glove and it surely help me. I cant imagine going through my day without my glove anymore.
