If you’re a new mom and you’re experience pain in your thumb and wrist area, then you’re experiencing DeQuervain’s Tendonitis or New Mom Syndrome. Pain is caused by the inflammation of tendons in the thumb and arises from repetitive lifting of baby improperly. I happen to notice this shooting pain on my wrist when Gwen is 4 months old and I took care of her for one week because we let go of Yaya#3. I was constantly carrying Gwen at that time. I just shrugged off the pain for weeks unsuspecting that baby carrying is the culprit. But since the pain won’t go away, I googled it and found out that I’m not the only one having this pain.
So, along with my research on lipofuze reviews, I searched for tips on how to treat/manage New Mom Syndrome:
- Apply ice pack to the affected area to reduce inflammation. Do this 2-3 times per day for 10 minutes.
- A splint to immobilize and rest the thumb and wrist may be used.
- If not breastfeeding, over-the-counter pain relievers can help.
- Apply topical pain relievers such as Ben-gay to the affected area.
