A 28-year-old female asked:

I am experiencing wrist pain. seems like the top of the radial bone right under my thumb. i woke up with the pain 3 months ago and it is now so unbearable. i wear a splint and it hurts less but upon taking it off, the pain is bad. i have no swelling.

Wrist pain: Well,you gave it 3 months. Obviously your problem is not self-healing. you are overdue to have your wrist evaluated by a trained physician, rather than looking for an OTC solution. Get trained professional help now.

Tendinitis : This could be tendinitis to the thumb called Dequervains. Since you have had this three months getting an evaluation from an orthopedic doctor with xrays would be next step. An injection could also be tried.
