Wrist pain
Hi. I don’t know how to explain this but I hope that you will be able to understand. If I hold my hands out in front of me palms facing down. On the inside of my wrist, where arm and hand get together. I have these little bones that are starting to develop. If I turn my hands that the palms are facing each other and the thumb is facing me. If I then move my wrist back and forward the muscles are very sore. During the day they start to feel better. But when I sleep at night and the muscle get cold and if I do perhaps press on my wrist while turning around I wake from the most terrible pain. Who should I go and see or will this pass it is in both my wrist left worse than right. Thank you so much

HI h

Go and see a physio first - make sure they check your neck at the same time. Could be carpel tunnel syndrome, or a ganglion developing?
