My Xray showed Osteoarthritis in my fingers and wrists. I knew I had Osteoarthritis in my fingers but not in my wrists.

Is it unusual to have OA in wrists?

Glad you found us.  I found an article online that indicated OA does not commonly effect the wrist, but I bet there will be several here who differ with that opinion.  I found a table that indicated of women with OA, 27-37% have it in their wrists.  How is it being treated?  Is the treatment working for you?

No doing nothing really at all. The main problem is my little finger LH and middle finger RH.
The xray said in wrists. Dont have much problem. I take anti inflammatries when needed.

I just wonder how bad it will get as I assume OA cant be stopped
