breastfeeding

Posted by Erica M on 3/05/02 at 11:37 (075739)

I have been breastfeeding my baby for 6 months now. During my pregnancy, I got Carpal tunnel syndrome. I still have it. For the past 2 months, my feet have started to feel wierd. I am wondering if breastfeeding causes carpal tunnel and tarsal tunnel syndromes to persist? Does the hormonal influences from breastfeeding affect my nerve pathways?

Hormonal influences exists on joints during pregnancy but I am not aware of such direct changes on nerves.
