How Long Does Tendonitis In The Wrist Last
It varies: It depends on how severe it was. Generally if the pain is gone or much improved, you may gradually increase your activity. Be cautious about activities that caused or aggravated it in the first place. Start slowly, and increase as tolerated. Back off if symptoms return. The person who treated you (or a sports specialist) can give you advice specific to you. ...Read more
Varies: It really varies tremendously., but typically anywhere from 5-14 days. Somewhat similar to the recovery from an ankle sprain. If it goes on longer than that, it suggests there may be something else going on. Ideally, if the condition was caused by a certain degree of activity, the activity itself would be avoided to make recurrence less likely. Thank you. ...Read more

Wrist discomfort: It could be tendonitis or an overuse syndrome of muscles or ligaments from computer use or other repetative activities involving your wrist. Try cold and/or warm compresses, resting the wrist from repetative activities or any strain on it and, if you can take them, NSAIDS like ibuprofen should help. If symptoms persist, consult your physician or an orthopedic specialist. ...Read more

It depends: It may be that the injury is actually more serious than tendonitis and thus is not responding to rest. It is also possible that even though you are resting it, it is still being used daily in everyday activities that prevent full healing. A temporary brace or cast immobilization may be required. If your pain is persistent or not improving, I recommend seeking orthopedic medical evaluation. ...Read more
