PostSubject: Sore hand joints   Wed 25 Aug 2010, 3:03 pm

Anyone had this? For the last 10 days my hands have been quite sore but today it took me a full half hour to open my left hand. it is better now just very tender. I was just putting it down to excess fluid on the joints in late pregnancy. However someone has said to keep an eye on it as it could be a PE symptom???? I would say it has got worse since stopping aspirin.

Hi Mossy,

Hands & feet can swell quite normally during pregnancy. The joints may be painful due to the cartilage between the joints softening as your whole body prepares to move a huge bump into the world.

Aspirin has a mild anti inflammatory property to it so it does sound more like an inflammation as opposed to a PE 'swelling'.

Of course if you are worried, make sure your GP knows about it.

Hope this helps.
Best Wishes
Liz
