I fell a few weeks ago and sprained my wrist. I was having some problems with my wrist prior to this and had a cortisone injection before the fall. X-rays were negative for fracture. My wrist is still painful and I have decrease range of motion plus it pops and cracks a lot. My wrist hand and fingers still swell up really bad especially in the morning. I have tried ice, rest, ibuprofen. Im on await and see approach from dr. currently. Any suggestions on what could be causing so much swelling still. And any input as to what might be going on. Thank you so much for any thoughts!
Thanks for your reply. Had x-ray last week and it was neg for fracture. I have been using ice and NSAIDs but continue with pain and swelling. I am wearing a brace also. My pain is on the ulnar side and at times just throbs and aches. sometimes I also have a burning pain. I have very limited range of motion.
Any thoughts on what all this could be and what the next step would be?
