I have had recurring pain in my wrist whenever I push my fingers

Customer Question

I have had recurring pain in my wrist whenever I push my fingers back towards my arm, especially when doing push ups. This has been on going for about a year and a half now and I've tried stretching, resting etc. and nothing has worked... I spoke to someone who suggested something it might be but I can't remember what it was called... He said it was to do with the blood vessels in my wrist not being connected properly or not functioning properly as far as I can remember... Any suggestions?

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

your friend may have called it carpel tunnel syndrome.

Dr. David :

but it doesn't sound like carpel tunnel syndrome.

Dr. David :

it sounds more like a tendonitis in your wrist

Dr. David :

or inflammation of the tendons which run through your wrist.

Dr. David :

I am glad you have tried resting and stretching the tendons in your wrist.

Dr. David :

you should also try to ice your wrist with a bag of ice wrapped in a towel for 3-5 times a day.

Dr. David :

and also used advil or aleve anti-inflammatories to see if these help.

Dr. David :

if these don't work, you should see a doctor about it and get an ultrasound or MRI scan of your wrist to check the tendons and bonds in your wrist to see if something is inflamed.

Dr. David :

hello?
