Joint Pain During Pregnancy At The Age Of 20 Weeks?
Hello .. I am 26 years old. Now I am 28 weeks pregnant. I want to ask, From the beginning of pregnancy until 20 weeks of pregnancy I consume folamil genio, after 20 weeks I switched to consuming folamil gold. They say a lot of people say folmil gold is rich in calcium. But I still feel pain in the joints. What can I do to deal with my complaint?
Where do you often experience joint pain? During pregnancy the mother's body undergoes many changes, including hormonal changes. One of the hormonal changes that occur is the production of relaxin hormone which causes the joints to be more stretched and elastic, this will be beneficial during labor later. This stretch of the joint can cause complaints of joint pain and aches in pregnant women.
But in addition to hormonal changes, joint pain can also be caused by other causes such as weight gain, carpal tunnel syndrome (on the wrist), arthritis, and a history of previous trauma.
As long as there are no other complaints such as fever, redness, joints or swelling, you can try some tips to relieve complaints as follows:
Get enough rest
Mild exercise during pregnancy, such as pregnancy exercise, swimming, relaxing walking, pregnant yoga, consult with a gynecologist first about sports that you can do yes
Take a warm shower
Inadequate body's water and nutrition needs
Manage stress well
Use a pregnancy corset if necessary
If the pain does not improve, or if other complaints arise, I suggest that you submit complaints of joint pain to the obstetrician during pregnancy control, yes. The doctor will carry out further tests to ascertain the cause of your joint pain and provide appropriate and safe treatment for pregnant women.
Hope it helps you,
