I have suspected carpal tunnel, previous trigger thumb & arthritis in my hand. I stumbled 2 days ago onto my hand. Now got a stabbing pain in wrist, trying to rest it with ice pack, bandage & co codamol. What is your opinion?

Thank you for contacting JustAnswer for your query, this is Dr Ansari Welcomes you.

so sorry to hear that, kindly do x-rays to rule out any traumatic injury with your GP.

Thanks. I don't think it's broken, maybe sprained or just aggravated the carpal. I am reluctant to have it examined or xrayed as it's so painful when moved & I have been waiting for hospital appointment. So your opinion is that I should consult with my doctor rather than wait? Thanks.
