mommaof2boys663,
I would see your primary care doctor as soon as possible. You might need a referral to a specialist. I am not a doctor, but I have pain in my right wrist and have lost a lot of the strength in it. ( I can't pick up a large skillet with food in it with just my right hand anymore.) My doctor told me it was the early stages of carpal tunnel syndrome and to watch my wrist when I am using a keyboard and not break my wrists when I am typing or surfing online. She also gave me some exercises to do when the pain starts to flare up real bad to try and help strengthen and stretch my wrist. She also suggested that I purchase a wrist brace, which I did, and although it may take time to get used to wearing it ( It did for me! :D) it did help relieve some of my pain. And sometimes I have my husband rub my fingers, hands, wrists, and forearms; which feels wonderful for me. Hope this helps and I pray you find some relief from the pain you are in. Have a happy holiday season.  =D
