For the past 4 days my wrist hurts and almost always makes a sound when I bend it. It’s like a “click” sound, so it doesn’t just sound. If I rotate my forearm, I also feel a bit of pain in the radius and ulna.

Hello,

Wrist and arm pain can be caused by:

Injuries due to falls, repetitive work activities using the wrist/arm resulting in fractures/shifting of bone positions or inflammation of joints and muscles. Excessive levels of uric acid in the body can cause a buildup of uric acid crystals in the joints of the hands. Inflammation of joint tissue and cartilage/osteoarthritis. An autoimmune condition that affects the joints of the hands, usually in both hands. Repeated pressure on the nerves around the wrist that causes numbness, tingling and pain. Ganglion cyst, a benign tumor that usually appears on the wrist. Bone disorders in adolescents. Joint infection. Side effects of certain drugs.

While at home, to reduce pain, rest the sore hand first. Give a warm compress on the painful areas. Use long-sleeved gloves/shirts to protect hands and arms from cold air which can trigger more severe pain. Pay attention to the sleeping position, keep the aching hand from being crushed by the body.

If the complaints that you feel are very disturbing, you should see a doctor for direct medical consultation. The doctor will conduct medical questions and answers regarding your complaints and medical history, perform a physical examination, especially in the area of ​​​​painful joints, and recommend investigations if a serious medical cause is suspected.

Pain management will be adjusted to the cause and diagnosis found by the doctor.
