Wrist problem

Hola.  I am a 23 yr old male guitar player, and I have been having some trouble with my left wrist.  The other day I was doing a bunch of yoga stretches for my hand, some of them were quite awkward, and aI heard and felt alot of popping as I was doing one.  now my wrist pops sometimes when I am moving it up and down or rotating it.  Also, mainly, when ever I am playing guitar, and I am turning my wrist to play something different on the guitar, I get a sharp shocking pain down the center of my wrist, other than that it does not hurt, it is only when I am turning my wrist  a certain way when playing.  Could this just be a overuse injury that will heal, have I pinched a nerve maybe?  I am going to see my orthopaedist soon, just wanted to wrap my mind around what kind of problem I have going on.
