Wrist pain down the outside. Doctors don't know what it is. No swelling. Is sore for about 4-6 weeks then fine for another 3-4 weeks then sore again.

Try keeping track of what you are doing the few days before it hurts. Excessive exercise, sports, or typing and writing could all be contributing to your pain. ...Read more

Possibly surgery: Conservative treatment for carpal tunnel including splints, anti inflammatory meds and steroids work in the early stages but do not provide great long term relief as the condition worsens. Surgery can provide great relief and if done endoscopically can allow a rather quick return to function with minimal pain compared to traditional techniques. I would recommend an evaluation by a hand surgeon. ...Read more

Low back pain with right thigh numbness and right arm/hand/wrist pain/numbness. Sneezing causes extreme aching pain in both arms. Thoughts on causes?
Spine specialist W/U: It coulb be from disc disease in your neck or high in the back creating some nerve root irritation from the sudden negative intrathoracic pressure created by the sneeze. When not sneezing the disc may look normal, which makes it very difficult to diagnose. The same phenomenon can result from a build up of bone (osteophytes) near the central canal or the foramen where the nerves travel. ...Read more
I started playing tennis and ignored a slight pain in my wrist. Tender pain started between my index & middle knuckle today. Is this cause for concern?

Layoff the tennis for a few days. If no improvement in 7 to 10 days or worse, see your doctor. Hope this is helpful. Best of luck with this. ...Read more
