Re: Arms aching?

I feel your pain. I have the exact same issue and sadly it has only gotten worse. I went from having numb arms to being unable to open and close my hands to absolutely no feeling in my pointer and middle finger on my right hand. I really think it has to do with a pinched nerve, though, because the numbness starts somewhere in my shoulders, not just my forearms (which is carpal tunnel). My midwife suggested capsaicin pills (cayenne pepper), but I had such horrible heartburn that it wasn't really possible. I wish I could give you some positive advice or things to try, but I've really been at a loss myself.

Luckily I'm 38 weeks pregnant and baby can come any day!
