Help my Wrists!!!!
One month ago I woke up with the most unbearable pain in my wrists. It felt as though I had sat on them all night. I couldn’t wash my hair, brush my hair or teeth, or even turn my bedroom doorknob without yelling in pain. My doctors reaction was, “well its swelling from pregnancy. Normal stuff, it’ll go away. Try not using it for a while and take some tylenol.”I do have bouts of swelling due to normal pregnancy stuff, but I just don’t believe this is pregnancy related. I found a tiny bit of information about de Quervains disease, which sounded just like my symptoms, but I couldn’t find enough to actually go to my doctor with and demand testing and treatment. I have about 4 weeks until my due date so I would like to set up some kind of treatment regimin now to save me time in the future. I am in terrible pain. I cannot perform the simpilist of procedures that daily life brings me. I am a very busy person with lots of responsibility and interests. I have been forced to give up on my gardening for now, and had to deligate other chores to my older kids and husband. I would like to be myself again and be able to do things for myself. I just cannot live like this. I am too independent to just sit on my sensored and do nothing. I feel like an idiot complaining about my thumbs and wrists all the time. Someone please help me. Give me some advise. Clue me in to what has happened to me.
