what do you suggest if my wrist hurt a lot at random times?

Work up: The wrist is without question the most complex and sophisticated joint in the body. Encompassing 8 bones and a multitude of ligaments not to mention the array of tendons, vessels, and nerves that traverse the wrist, any single or combination of structures can be involved so I recommend you start with your family doctor who can treat most problems or refer you to his trusted Hand Surgeon.
