    Wrist pain


    If anyone could help me out that would be cool. For about two months my wrist has been in pain. I can still lift, and it still has it's strength. I have avoided using for about seven weeks now to avoid doing serious damage. When it does get irritated I feel it almost all the way down my forearm. Had x-rays done and it isn't bone. I've recently started using about 6g cissus from 1Fast, thought that might help. This injury is really testing me and i'm about to freak out, I just want to lift. Any advice would be helpful.

    Could be a nerve if its travelling up the arm. It depends on if the pain is more or a sudden weakening/soreness/tenderness. Or if its a tweaked feling, liek a pinch or soemthing. Id say if it was anything bone related, which as you mentioned it not, youd of known.
    I have chondromalacia in my right knee, its basically a weak tendon or lack of development in the tendons. Less cartiladge(sp?) than normal. That feel like it is weak and tender almost liek hanging on by nothing.

    Id say go to a specialist and def. get it looked at soon.

    Talk to the doc about carpal tunnel syndrome? Thats worst case scenario, but CTS is quite common these days. More than likely it's arthritis, or stiff joints, but I'd see a doc just to be safe.

    Sure sounds like it's a tendonitis . Give it a rest for a week and see what happens.......

    Do you spend a lot of time at the computer? Are your wrists cocked awkwardly while you're typing/using a mouse? If this is the case something as simply and raising or lowering the chair so that your wrists are more at rest. I'm just trying to throw more ideas out there for ya. Talking from experience? Yeah....

    Rest it. Take fish oil. Stretch it when it doesn't hurt.

    Could be any of these to be honest. I am not a doctor but it sounds more like tendonitis or CTS. I type all day long and lift, I work in IT so it is hard to get away from. Lately the pain has started to fade. I also started doing exercises to strengthen my wrists and wearing wrist wraps. In reality all they do is mask the pain, but time off would be ideal. Also, it NEVER hurts to see a specialist.

    I'd buy one of those cheap velcro volar wrist splints at cvs and put that on. I think splinting/resting it and taking an NSAID(ibuprofen) to help decrease localized inflammation is a good start. However, i'm not a doctor and if this continues to bother you get in to see your PMD for a thorough evaluation.

    Use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs combined with rest and gradual return to exercise is a common therapy, although there is evidence to suggest that tendinitis is not an inflammatory disorder, and that anti-inflammatory drugs are not an effective treatment and that inflammation does not cause tendon dysfunction.

    That statement is sourced here under the treatment section...

    "Tendinitis" literally means inflammed tendon in medical terminology. I'd take what wikipedia says sometimes with a grain of salt especially when it pertains to medical issues/treatments. A true tendinitis is fairly easy for a practitioner to diagnose and responds very well to the current standard of care. However, if t concerns him he needs to see his doctor for eval.

    That is what I would do.
