Overuse: tendonitis. I would suggest a wrist support and if not allergic the use of Advil or Aleve. If pain is worsening, you may need stoner medication or a local injection with Novocain (procaine) and cortisone. I would start with a good ( sports) wrist support worn OVER a pull on tennis wrist towel
