Hi emily

I am having very bad carpel tunnel syptoms, occurs at night and the pain wakes me up. i know i can get something to put around my wrist, can i get this from the MW or shall i ask the consultant.

Also is there anything i can do to help it, as it really does hurt. i believe it can be worse with twins?

thanks

Hi,

Your midwife should be able to refer you to physio, who will are often the ones to give you a splint. In the meantime, try and rest your hand when you can, and you can wrap an ice pack in a towel and place that on the hand at the worst times, and this may ease things a bit,

Hi,

Sorry hun, different areas vary. In places I've worked, the midwife can refer directly,
