Hi doctor,
No swelling. Slight neck pain is there. I sleep mostly one side to my left or some times one sided to right. I'm pregnant 5 months. Anything to worry or any suggestion?

Brief Answer:
Nothing serious

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
In pregnancy, hyper dynamic circulation may lead to pumping sensation.
Other possibilty may be carpal tunnel syndrome if abnormal sensation, pain is involving hand.
Be watchful for any sensation loss.
Nothing seems serious at this moment of time.
