Specializes in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
Right wrist pain: You can consider resting it for a couple of days, icing it for 10-15 minutes a couple of times a day for 1-2 days and taking an anti-inflammatory medication if you do not have any contraindications. If the pain persists, then it should be evaluated.

Wrist tendinitis: Is a common issue. At the base of the thumb especially in what is known as the first dorsal compartment, an entity commonly known as dequervain's or stenosing tenosynovitis of the radial styloid can affect thumb motion, wrist motion and writing. Ice, NSAIDs, soft splints and at times an injection can help. Other issues may be arthritis joint pain, nerve pain or just plain old muscle fatigue.
