Pain In The Wrist?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Unfortunately we cannot directly check the condition of your wrist due to limited access. In general, suppression of innervation in the wrist for a relatively long time (for example: the habit of sleeping on a table with the wrist position supporting the chin) does not rule out causing pain in the wrist. However, to be sure, it still needs an evaluation by a doctor. It is also possible that pain is caused by other disorders / diseases that cannot be eliminated, including:
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS, carpal tunnel syndrome), which is a disease caused by the median nerve in the hand being depressed due to inflammation / swelling due to trauma, inflammation of the joints, protrusion of bones growing in the wrist joints, or benign tumors in the wrist area
Lack of intake of vitamins B1, B5, and / or B12
Diabetic neuropathy, which is a complication in patients with diabetes mellitus
Neurological disorders of the brain, spinal cord or peripheral nerves, for example: post-trauma, stroke, central nervous system infections
Decreased blood supply to the hands / feet that is reversible (can return to its original condition) and temporary, for example: primary Raynaud's disease
If the pain is felt so disturbing, you are advised to consult a doctor or neurologist so that it can be evaluated and treated appropriately. As a suggestion, you should rest the wrist that is painful and avoid strenuous activities. To help reduce pain, while you can use over-the-counter pain relievers, for example: paracetamol, at doses according to the rules of use listed on the packaging of the drug. A painful wrist can be compressed cold for 15-20 minutes every 3-4 hours. Support the wrist when lying down so that it is in a higher position to reduce swelling and inflammation. Immediately to the doctor if pain accompanied by difficulty moving the wrist which impedes daily activities.
