Does anyone have any pain in their wrists?

I've read that BFing mamas can get something called "nursing" carpel tunnel, and that it goes away with the use of a nursing pillow and switching positions to nurse. I've done both of these things for almost two months now but I still have pretty intense pain in my wrists by the end of the day within my joints. They are really stiff and painful when I wake up in the morning as well, no matter my sleeping position. Does anyone have any helpful tips?

I had carpel tunnel-like symptoms whiles I was pregnant. It is so painful! I got some wrist supports from a drugstore. They helped the pain at night.

Yes i started getting shooting pains down my arm. I made sure i rested in my arm on a hot water bottle twice a day and at night rest it on soft pillows. It sounds odd but after a week the pain went away.
