Post delivery joint pain
My feet started hurting two weeks post-partum. This was my second baby, first baby is one and a half years old. The condition is worst in the morning and I cannot stand, feet feel sore. After 3-4 days pain came in both hands' finger joints too. Now wrists also hurt. Mostly I avoid lifting my toddler, but had to lift him on 3rd day of delivery as he demanded. I still lift him at least once daily on his demand and that brings on wrist pain. I wonder if I have got arthritis because I skip calcium during pregnancy or just the effect of relaxin which will wear off. I have breastfed my toddler until 7th month of pregnancy.
