Mel, it may not be true carpel tunnel. When you are pregnant and as the pregnancy goes along your joints get 'looser' so to speak. I'm not sure of the right wording
There are hormones that in pregnancy make your ligaments and joints soften and loosen up (to get ready for childbirth).
It does go away
but until then all I can suggest is mild painkillers (check with your doctor, he will tell you which anti-inflammatory is best) and keep warm. Wear gloves
Also Dencorub or Deep Heat should help. I can recommend a spray called "Pain Away". It's 100% Natural Active Ingredients - I pretty sure you can use during pregnancy but check with your doctor just to make sure.
Hope this helps!
I had the same thing happen with me during both pregnancies. My shoulder and my right hip. Towards the end of both pregnancies, the pain was pretty bad in my hip, it kept me awake at night and I could hardly walk
And then it disappeared within a couple of weeks of having my babies
