Over the weekend I spent a lot of time with my 2 year old nephew who I don’t see much. I was picking him up and carting him around quite a bit – pretty much always with my left arm (even though I’m right handed).
Yesterday I woke up with super intense pain in my left arm (kind of like the pain after a charley horse) today the heel of my left hand is really achy, kind of like a bruise and my arm is still kind of sore if I try and straighten it all the way.
I’m assuming this is from carting around my nephew and I’m not used to it – the only thing that’s throwing me is the pain in my hand, that doesn’t make sense to me. Anyone?

I work at a daycare as a Toddler Teacher caring for as many as 14 toddlers everyday, I also have history of using my wrists alot with photography and cashiering. Sometimes I get horrible wrist pain and sometimes my hands feel numb, I wondered if it was the beginning of carpal tunnel. I asked my chiropractor and he said sometimes the nerves can slip out of place and basically be squished which causes numbness, tingling and pain…maybe thats what happened to you since your body wasn’t used to the movements? There is a certain wrist flick that is used when picking up a child, and repetetive motion can always be damaging, your pain will probably go away if you are not continuing the same motions often. 🙂

It’s probably a radiant pain. I have a pinched nerve in my hip that causes numbness in my foot and pain in my calf
