A clinical examination is very essential for correct diagnosis and treatment of your symptoms. The common causes of your symptoms could possibly be ganglion cysts, rheumatoid arthritis, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoarthritis and gout. In rheumatoid arthritis there is morning stiffness, joint pains and nodules under the skin. Ganglion cysts arise from the capsule of a joint or the sheath of a tendon. They are found at different places on the wrist and some ganglion cysts may be painful. Seek the opinion of a healthcare professional. After a clinical examination he/she may further refer you to a specialist. Do keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!
Dear Dr Sharma,
Apologies for the delay, it turns out that I eventually went to my Doctor as it was extremely painful. I was diagnosed with Thrombophlebitis as I had recently been in hospital for an Angiogram.
Apparently the only thing one can do for this problem is to take anti-inflammatories and pain killers, I would be very interested to see what you thoughts are on this matter as I am getting it once again.
