See a doctor: It is hard to say what would cause the sharp shooting pains. Have you injured the wrist in any way.? Do you do a lot or repetitive actions/ motions.? Have you had any trauma to your veins? Where on the wrist is the pain ? What makes the pains come and go? These are question you should think about before you see a doctor to get a proper evaluation and answer.
