Nondiagnostic: Such fleeting severe wrist pain is nonspecific without other information. Is it caused by motion of the wrist? Is there a tender area? Shooting pains may be due to an irritable nerve.

Is it possible to have a cyst in your wrist that cannot be seen externally or on X-ray? Severe wrist pain x4 mos, loss of strength X-ray ok
Cannot say: In your particular case without a direct visit/exam/etc. BUT cysts don't show up on x-rays. Irritations or damage of a nerve also does not show on x-ray. A tendon can have a bleb called a ganglion cyst; its symptoms generally are what you describe. Http://www. Mayoclinic.

Splint: Use a popsicle stick or get masking tape to tape the pinky finger to the 4th finger. See your doctor for exam and possible x ray. More history and physical is needed. Was there a fall or an injury? Have your parents take you to your doctor at the earliest convenience. Good luck
Followup: wrist pain;not hand;no heat or swelling;"always" but more severe with use of course; I've used a wrist bandage but it doesn't seem to help?
Use a wrist brace to: Rest the wrist, and as much as possible during work as well. Without proper hx or exam, difficult to advise, except see an orthopod. If any numbness ;/or weakness, it could be a carpal tunnel syndrome. The brace could help then. Take some Ibuprofen or aleve (naproxen). I am sure seeing your pcp would also be quite helpful to get a dx..See 1 more doctor answer
I have sudden severe left wrist pain when turning knobs or reaching back for seat belt, etc. Popping sound. Tendon seems to "catch." Accutane related?
Maybe, maybe not: 1-10% of people can have problems with their muscles or joints on Accutane. However, what you describe can be due to other things as well. Best to call your doc today and ask what the best next step is to sort out the cause.

Had chronic erythema nodosum. Now having wrist pain. Severe and shoots up arm. Fingers curling to palm? Possible sacroidosis?
Yes: If you have lymph nodes visible on chest x-ray or palpable, they maybe worth sampling and an angiotensin-converting enzyme assay ordered as well. This is a reasonable part of the workup for longstanding erythema nodosum. There are several other possibilities and I am glad you are taking a proactive approach to your health.See 2 more doctor answers

Ulnar Nerve entrapme: Hi Cindykay A700, What you describe could be an entrapment of the ulnar nerve at the wrist (Guyon's Canal) or further up at the inside of the elbow (by the funny bone).

Foosh with dislocated elbow & cracked radial head. Elbow is painfree, but wrist pain is severe. Unable to supinate or pronate & have hand weakness.
