I am 7 weeks pregnant and for the last week I have been getting this weird burning tingling feeling in my hands, feet and arms legs too at night and sometimes during the day. I feel like my throat gets tight when I feel this way? I am scared? I had fetus dimial 3 years ago and really want this pregnancy to make it full term. I just need some answers. I go to the doc at 8 weeks but need some reassurnace until then. I do suffer from anixety and panic attacks too.

Really not sure what could be going on. Sometimes water retention can cause carpel tunnel during pregnancy. You could also have problems with your sciatic nerve but this is only mere speculation on my part. When your fingers are tingling raise your arms above your head. The last thing you need right now is added anxiety and stress. You have an appointment in a week in the meantime try reading. Try drinking some hot tea. Are you married, single?

i an also having tingling fingers during the night, i am 9 weeks and have been having this for the past couple of weeks, i didnt connect it to the pregnancy i just thought it was maybe due to the warm nights, as when i put my hand on the cold radiator it goes away.

You want to check your Calcium level. Low Calcium can cause tingling and numbness in the hands and mouth. During pregnancy women are more prone to having deficiencies. Good Luck!

Did you figure it out yet? I am assuming the tingling in my hands and feet are due to a B12 deficiency, pernicious anemia (?). I have an appointment in August. But I agree that it could be a deficiency. I was actually thinking that fluid retention in later pregnancy would cause the sciatica and carpal tunnel. 7 weeks is too early for fluid retention I believe. Are you sure your throat tightening isn't due to your anxiety disorder? Good Luck! Update us please!

I get that, but not during my pregnancies only... I have herniated discs in my lower back.. L3-L4, L4-L5, and L5-S1. I fractured one of my discs in my lower back and my C2 (neck) in a car accident... It causes all kinds of crazy numbness. Still no help/ my advice... If any dr. advices u to get a steroid injection in any part of ur body, it hurts really back, helps for sh*t, and back where u started. I also was born with spina bifida occulta. Which also causes problems in all those areas... the weight u might b putting on during pregnancy could be compressing ur spinal cord, do some stretches. Like sitting in a chair (if u can) or just bend over, and stretch out those vertebrae. Best wishes.. Smile Hope that helps... I've been threw enough physical therapy to know how to stretch those areas out~ best wishes, and congrats on ur mommyhood~~

Tingiling in hands and fingers
I to am having severe tingiling in my hands wrist fingers and lower arms, and i has gottin to the point that it hurts badly, I remember with my last pregnancy i had my whole left side go numb and it kept doing it for hours and i still had tingiling, and now im having this happening, and my mom said it could be pressure on disk in my back, so have your dr check it out.

I don't know if my pregnancy has anything to do with having a tingling feeling on the left side of my neck. Its really annoying! It is starting to bother me in my sleep now. Does anyone have an answer or feeling the same way?
