A 34-year-old emergency medicine physician, 27 weeks pregnant, presented with bilateral wrist pain with sudden onset upon waking up one morning. She had no history of trauma and had not engaged in any excessive physical activity in the previous days. Hands examination revealed discomfort upon bilateral palpation of the radial styloid and mobilisation of the thumb. Physical examination was negative for Phalen's sign and Tinel's sign but positive for Finkelstein's sign. Because of the patient's pregnancy, x-rays were not taken to rule out rhizarthrosis.
