Is there anything I can do for my hand and arm where it wont wont fall asleep and throb. Im 36 wks pregnant and its my left arm and hand. I find it very hard to do daily tasks because of it not to mention sleep.
Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. The hand goes t slep usually when the nerves of the hand remain pressed for a long time. For e.g. when the arm goes under the head or under the body while sleeping, it can press the radial nerve resulting in the numbness.
If this can be avoided, itâll give a marked relief from the symptoms. Thereâs no need to take any medicines for the same. Wishing you good luck for the coming good news. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
