Physiatrist: See a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist, physiatrist for short. They can diagnose is this is a wrist issue or a neck issue and use nerve conduction studies and electromyography to help diagnose. Lastly they can also help direct exact physical therapy and/or interventional/surgical care needed.
