healthydoc :

Hello and thank you for your question.

healthydoc :

Is the pain burning?

healthydoc :

Though you do not have fracture, one possibility of wrist pain can be due to compression of the median nerve. This condition is called carpel tunnel syndrome.

healthydoc :

To evaluate you need to see a neurologist who can order EMG nerve conduction test.

healthydoc :

You may need wrist splint at night and medication like gabapentin to reduce the pain if you get evaluated with nerve compression.

Customer:

i tried wrist splint at night and feel it aggravated it .Sometimes when i waken my wring finger and little finger are numb i also feel as though my wrist is inflamed. thank you

healthydoc :

You're welcome. Numbness is due to median nerve compression.

healthydoc :

I would suggest to try medication like gabapentin to ease the pain.

healthydoc :

You also need exercise for relieving the compression.
