Ek sit al vir meer as 3jaar met die probleem. Niemand kan my help nie. Ek voel van balans af maar in my nek. As ek my kop draai voel dit ek wil omval. As ek reguit loop voel dit of ek na 'n kant toe wil val. Ore is al getoets, normaal. My nek het 'n sensasie amper by my skedel. Amper soos 'n senuwee wat vasdruk. Dit voel al of dit my oë aantas en my sluk. As ek my kop agteroor hou maak dit my ook baie duiselig. Wat kan die probleem wees?

Firstly, congratulations! :)

Secondly, i also suffer from CTS, although mine only flairs up once in a while, usually when my acidity levels are very high or i overwork my wrists.

As far as i know, there is an op that they do to drain the fluid. It's a small op and is done under local anaesthetic, so there won't be any risk to baby. until you decide what to do, wear a stabilising wrist band, available at chemists, this really helps me when i swell up.

Chck with your GP or even your Gynae - they should know about the procedure. Good luck.
