Thanks! Glad to know it's not rare especially if breastfeeding! The pain seems to be getting better by itself.

I am also seeing a Physical therapist and have to take therapy for two weeks and it's really a big help. :)

Thanks for the reply Sarah. I visited an ortho to look in to my situation. He advised that there is really nothing to worry since most of moms especially those breastfeeding suffers from this kind of wrist pain. ;)

Yep, I had carpal tunnel syndrome for the last half of my pregnancy, and it's just amplified after giving birth. My daughter is just over 2 weeks old and I can barely pick her up because my right hand hurts so bad when I do! :( I'm going to look into getting a wrist brace or something...
