Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the wrist to the thumb may be caused by problems with the skin, joints, muscles, bones, nerves, or other components contained therein. This pain needs to be examined by a doctor directly so that it can be evaluated for other accompanying complaints, for example swelling, asymmetry, weakness, lumps, or other systemic complaints.
Some of the possibilities that can trigger pain in the wrist to the thumb as you experience are:
Deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals, such as vitamins B1, B6, B12, calcium, magnesium, potassium Carpal tunnel syndrome (compression of the median nerve in the wrist, for example due to swelling of the nerves and / or tendons) Gout arthritis (inflammation of the joints due to uric acid buildup) Rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis due to rheumatism, autoimmune disorders) Skin infections, for example due to acne, folliculitis, herpes zoster Peripheral neuropathy (peripheral nerve damage) Tumors in the wrists, etc. Through direct doctor's examination, doctors generally can identify the cause as well as determine appropriate handling, including if necessary supporting tests, such as X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, and so on. Therefore, don't delay to have it checked directly to the nearest health facility.
In the meantime, try to reduce your excessive activity using the sore wrists and thumbs, both for bending, lifting weights, writing, typing, holding cellphones, washing clothes, and so on. Compress the area of the painful hand with warm water and first take paracetamol so that the pain gets better. You can also consume more foods that contain lots of B complex vitamins, which are good for nourishing joints, nerves, and muscles. Avoid massaging the painful area without first knowing what caused the pain. Don't forget, stay away from stress, and don't smoke.
Hope it helps ..
