Numbness in fingers an wrist, slipping joints during pregnancy. Same even after child birth. Reasons ?

Hi when I was pregnant in 2010 my hands became numb my fingers and my wrist feel pain. It seems as if the joints were slipping for every little movement.That was in the middle of the pregnancy. It stopped months after he was born. Now he s almost 2 years about 2 months ago it started again. I am not pregnant. Since he was born my menstruation did not return as normal. Maybe a bit of slim once in a while. This month was two days of a little more slim. My legs also felt the numbness and it also returned. Can you help me with this problem?

Thanks for posting
The symptoms you had during pregnancy were normal and happens in some patient,they are known as pregnancy induced carpal tunnel syndrome.
You may go for EMG/NC test to rule out median nerve compression at wrist leading to carpal tunnel syndrome.
Beside this get blood test for vtamin B12 deficency.
Take care
