What Could this be? I have had a problem with my left wrist feeling like it is popping. It makes a loud distinct pop when I move my wrist from side to side. Additionally, I have a dull pain that seems to come and go at random. And occasionally I like my hand is weak. I have had this problem for at least three years, and lately it seems to be getting worse. The only thing that I think could have caused this problem is a four wheeling incident that happened six years ago. But would my wrist still be giving me problems after so long? Should I seek medical advice, or should I just continue to let this go? I really don't know of I'm putting to much into it. I need an answer as to what this popping .could be, and if it could be serious and possibly get worse. Thanks to anyone who can give me an answer
Your wrist making popping with each rotation suggests that either you might have distal radio-ulna joint instability or there would be wrist ligament injury.
Do you have any pain in your wrist? If so, where is the pain?
What is the quality of your pain and/or symptoms (e.g., sharp, electric, dull, aching, numbness, tingling, etc.)?
What are your occupation and hobbies?
When did your symptoms begin? Do you ever have symptoms at night that awaken you from sleep?
Have you tried any treatments for your pain and have they helped?
Keep me posted with your answers.
I have pain over my thumb, and sometimes under my pinky finger, and even sometimes carries into my elbow. It is a dull aching pain that seems to get worse with more use. I am going to college for veterinary medicine, so I need to work with my hands a lot. I have tried splinting my hand but this seems to have little effect. It does not get any more worse than the pain during the day. My symptoms have within the last two weeks been more constant and a little more intense.
I think either you have distal radio-ulna instability or nerve compression at the level of elbow joint. You should be doing x-ray and a consultation with an orthopaedician for further evaluation.
Hope this helps.
Here recently when i move my wrist a certain way I get a burning sensation. It stays in one place of my wrist, which if you place your right hand palm up, right underneath the bend on the left side, it feels like my wrist is on fire and lasts for quite a few seconds. What could cause this? Thank you for your time...
