I have a question regarding my wrist and what happens to it when i do activities such as heavy lifting. It most particularly happens in the right wrist but if I were to do activities such as lifting weights or heavy objects my wrist starts to pop or go into spasms and it feels strange so I try to stop. It has been happening recently and I am wondering why. If you could please respond that would be great.
It can be due to muscle damage or nerve irritation locally. The other causes are compartment syndrome, nerve compression or any trauma. You would need to rule out decrease in calcium levels in blood and also stop smoking if have been.
If the symptoms continue get yourself examined by an orthopedician.
