Pain In The Wrist Spread To The Finger That Does Not Go Away?
Hello doctor, I’m Yasha, a 16-year-old woman. It’s been a week since my wrists (especially the right one) aches, aches, aches and cramps spread to the thumbs and palms, to the elbows, especially when used. Already in the sequence repeatedly remained ill with no change. Indeed, lately I have recorded many lessons, lifting weight because I am a student council student, and push-ups because I happen to be also a post-child student. But it usually doesn’t go this far. What is the first action I need to take and what is this, hmm? thanks.
