Ulnar wrist pain.: Ulnar wrist pain has a wide differential from extensir carpi ulnaris subluxation or synovitis, distal radioulnar joint arthritis, tears to the triangular fibrocartilage complex, ulnar styloid fractures or impaction, kienbocks disease and ulnar artery thrombosis to name a few. It would be best to see a hand surgeon who can help narrow this differential and develop a course of treatment for you.

Many possibilities: Ulnar sided wrist pain can be attributed to a lot of pathologies. The most common would be ecu tendonitis or a tear/sprain of the tfcc. I would recommend a through exam by a hand surgeon and possibly an mri. Wear a volar (palm side) wrist splint, avoid heavy lifting and take ndaids for temporary relief.
