Wrist Pain 2
Hi Dr P

I'll try to answer your questions as clear as possible. I'm not sure about the sound that the wrist make, but it sound like a snapping sound. I don't get tigling feeling in my hands, but my fingers (especially my pinkies) starts to hurt. About the bumps and lumps, there is none. I don't know if it's normal, but there is like a hole where the pain is. There is no bone.

Hope it is clear enough. I'm very nervous about doctors, that is why I hope you can give me some advice for self treatment.

Thank you very much for your time

Hi ys<br> The interesting point is that when not moving the wrists (ie In a fixed position such as push ups), there is no pain. It indicates that there is possibly a ligamentous, tendinous type problem or synovitis( ie unlikely to be fractures). It may be inflammatory in origin so a short course of anti inflammatories may help along with not aggravating the area. Ideally immobilisation with splints would be helpful, especially at night.<br>if these don't help an a diagnostic/therapeutic cortisone /local anaesthetic injection may help.<br>Good luck
