has anyone had postpartum wrist pain

I have the worst pain in my wrist for a week now. I have heard its called de Quervains tendinitis. It is comes with pregnancy and breast feeding moms. I was just curious if you had it what did you do for it and how long did it last?

Re: has anyone had postpartum wrist pain

I had it and it got pretty bad around the time DS turned 1. Basically just a lot of strain from lifting him. Finally I went to an orthopedist and they gave me a brace to wear. After using it for about a month it finally went away. I used to wear it pretty tight around my wrist.

The type of tendinitis you mentioned refers to a specific part of the wrist/arm. That wasn't the type I had.

If it is really bad/uncomfortable I suggest you try a wrist guard (probably can get one at a drug store) and if that doesn't help you can go to the doctor and they might give you a cortisone shot or something.

Good luck...i remember how painful it was still!

Re: has anyone had postpartum wrist pain

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had AWFUL wrist pain after DS was born. I'm not sure when exactly it started... but it lasted till around 12 months maybe.....

I think it was due to holding him. My sister had the same exact thing.

She tried a wrist guard. I never tried anything, but probably should have. It was excrutiating.

Good luck! Chat Icon Try to rest your wrist.
