Re: ingrown toenails/pins&needles after pregnancy

Unfortunately, what you describe is something that can occur with and after pregnancy. You may need to have permanent removal of your ingrown nails. You might also need an orthotic as the hormones that are secreted (relaxin) weaken the ligaments. This and the weight gain help cause the other problems. If your foot doctor is not addressing your concerns, see another.

Good luck.

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
