Anyone else have this? Last night I rushed to my doctor because I had an "ache" near my heart and my left arm and fingers were a little numb. Blood pressure was fine and EKG came out just fine. He said it's most likely a muscle ache. Probably right, carrying my DD (30lbs) around and my heavy ass purse.
Today while shopping with my mom my arm was really tingly again and my lips felt a little numb. Of course I FREAKED out because I just had read symptoms of a stroke (my friends friend who is 30 just had one and is now in a coma.) I went to my chiropractor and he said it is all "nerve" related and gave me a great adjustment which helped almost right away. I read online that during pregnancy you can experience tingling and numbness in arms and extremities. Anyone else have it? It is annoying and a little frightening at the same time.
My limbs (mostly hands) get tingly often. I read on Baby Center that it's carpal tunnel and pregnancy makes it worse (or something like that).
