Causes And Ways To Deal With Wrist Pain?
I want to ask, it’s been two days that my wrist suddenly aches, why is that? then how to handle it. thank you
Thank you for the question.
Sudden wrist pain may be associated with an injury. This injury can happen with or without you being aware, for example when writing, typing, washing, lifting things, sewing, and so on. This injury can have an effect on tissue disorders in your wrist, for example muscles, bones, joints, nerves, tendons, or other tissues that support it. Not only pain, because of injury, your wrist can also become swollen, reddish, and difficult to move.
In addition to injuries, pain in your wrist may also occur due to rheumatoid arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to autoimmune disorders), gout arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to excessive deposition of uric acid crystals), nerve disorders (such as carpal tunnel syndrome, pinched ulnar nerve , diabetic neuropathy, spinal cord squeezed), muscle disorders (such as lack of certain vitamins and minerals, fibromyalgia), viral or bacterial infections, post herpetic neuralgia, psychosomatic disorders, and so on.
Injuries and various other possible causes of wrist pain as we mentioned above can be distinguished by direct examination by a doctor or neurologist. In some cases, additional investigations can also be needed, for example x-rays, blood tests, ultrasound, CT scans, MRI, and so on. Therefore, if the pain feels very disturbing, you should check yourself directly to the nearest health facility.
At this time, you can first apply pain relief cream on your sore wrist. Avoid carelessly rubbing, bullying, or giving other medicines to the wrists that are painful, without first consulting a doctor. Make sure you rest the painful side of the hand from excessive physical activity. Don't forget, regularly also exercise every day, especially sports that focus on stretching hands, such as gymnastics, swimming, yoga, and so on.
Hope this helps ...
