wrist popping with bone movement on radial deviation no trauma

slow onset wrist pain in flexion/radial deviation. Woke up with severe popping and bone movement (scaphoid) with pain as though a ligament is out of place. No pain on passive radial deviation but pain on passive ulnar deviation. No pain on grasping. Tenderness in forearm flexors and extenders. Any ideas what might be going on.

Hi!
A clicking popping sound in the wrist could be due to damage to the Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex (TFCC). The TFCC is made up of cartilage and ligaments and is present on the side of the little finger (ulnar side of wrist). It is needed to stabilize the wrist bones and also acts as a shock absorber. Injury to this can cause clicking popping sound on moving your wrist in some directions. Other than this, pain on radial deviation can be due to injury to scapholunate ligament, and pain on ulnar deviation can also be caused by injury to the lunotriquetral ligament. An injured TFCC and other ligaments can be managed by rest and anti-inflammatory and/or pain medications. The wrist can be stabilized by wrist supports, splints, casts or by surgery.  If this is not treated in time, it can worsen the pain and de-stabilize the wrist.  Do consult your doctor for proper management. Take care!
