Question: I have a numbness in my entire right hand... although m taking iron, calcium and vitamin tablets..numbness is only in right hand and in the entire hand

Answer: if you have tingling, numb and painful hands during pregnancy, it's likely to be caused by carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). CTS is common in pregnancy. It happens when there is a build-up of fluid (oedema) in the tissues in your wrist..Talk to your doctor about getting a wrist brace (available at drugstores) that helps relieve pain. Try this exercise from the AAOS: Curl fingers into a fist, and bend your wrist toward the palm. Then straighten fingers and stretch your wrist in the other direction. Do 10 reps at least once a day.
