M.Ed. Ex Phys
I saw one comment about a de-load, perhaps it's my background, but I think taking a week off to rest and recover might not be a bad idea. Pain is your body sending you a message, listen up before you get a repetitive strain injury. Then hit the gym with the wraps mentioned and see how it goes.
Do you use a thumb over or under grip, a lot of guys I see doing thumb under grip roll there wrist back when pressing which is very bad for the wrists. Next time you bench pay attention to the back of your hand it should be a straight line through to the forarm, there shouldn't be any degrea of flexing. if this is the issue drop a few pounds on the bar and try keeping your wrist straight, its should take care of the issue.

Research Rock Climbing stretches for your tendons and ligaments in your muscles and forearms. They help a ton.
There ya go. When I had elbow tendenosis/itis whatever, the trigger points and stretching were a god send. I used to do skull crushers then a day later my elbows ached like a tooth ache. Once I started locating those points and then stretching afterwards, my tendons and ligs seemed to loosen up.
I also understand pain, but there is also a difference between pain and injury. There can be pain, without actual injury too.
I used to get the same pain in my forearms.. I started supplementing with a bottle of cissus and within a week the pain went away..
I have not experienced any persistent joint pain after using I started using hyaluronic acid, MSM, Chondritrin and glucosamine. Placebo or not, its working for me and I would surely recommend trying it.
I had the same thing and boosted my fish oil, started taking cissus, plus using wrist straps. The pain didn't go away completely but got much better
That is just tendon inflammation...you need to stay away from movements that inflame that area for 2 or 3 weeks and let it heal. Take ibuprofen regularly....this is not a wrist wrap issue.
