This is Dr. David
it sounds like you have a pinched nerve in your wrist .
which could be causing so much pain.
this could be a type of carpel tunnel syndrome if you have numbness in your hands.
or it could be a very bad tendonitis of the tendons going through the wrist.
I would use ice on your wrist.
get a bag of crushed ice in a zip lock bag wrapped in a towel and place on your wrist for 20-30 minutes at a time 4-6 times a day.
to help decrease inflammation and swelling in your wrist.
I would not use the heating pads.
heating pads does not help the wrist.
heating pads are for sore muscles like the back.
and you should see your doctor as soon as possible to get an ultrasound of your wrist to check for carpel tunnel syndrome.
going to gp on wednesday are any of the things im doing going to work could it be the pravastatin im on?
most likely not the prevastatin.
stop the heating pads.
and start using ice on the inside of the wrist.
do you have other questions?
would an xray help added to all the other stuff i had canderous groth taken ftrom leg 3months ago and cancerous cellss 6 frozen off my face 2 months ago pain was dreadful but clear now
an xray can help
it can check for arthritis and bone inflammation in the wrist as well.
but cancer doesn't really spread to the wrist.
thanks its obvious that i worry about secondaries but hope that wouldnt be true
I don't think you have to worry about cancer spreading to the wrist.
