Elbow pain at funny bone side and wrist pain at small round bone side. Been 1 month. Likely cause? Treatment?

Elbow pain at funny bone side and wrist pain at small round bone side. Been 1 month. Likely cause? Treatment?

Different causes: The medial elbow pain experienced in the funny elbow could be an ulnar neuropathy, or a medial epicondylitis. This will depend on other symptoms that might be experienced. If nerve problem, then numbness and weakness also present. The wrist pain could be referred from elbow or a separate problem. "Small round bone" is not an accurate description of pain location so I cant be specific on causes Read more

Have wrist pain. X ray ulnar variance. Doc said it might be kienbock. If it were kienbock, when do I take the mri? Right away?

Have wrist pain. X ray ulnar variance. Doc said it might be kienbock. If it were kienbock, when do I take the mri? Right away?

Keinbocks disease: Involves the blood supply of the lunate, a bone in the wrist. MRI is used to diagnose and help stage the early disease. Standard X-rays are also used as the later stages show. Positive ulnar variance refers to the ulna being too long and it can impact the lunate. MRI may at times not differentiate early impaction v keinbocks. Timing depends upon symptoms, response to rx, and history Read more

32 yr female w5 yr ulnar wrist pain. No motor loss. Burns/aches/numb. Painful to type, apply makeup, write. Xray, ncv, emg negative. Pain on pisotriquetral joint. Ulnar/median decompression. No mri. What's wrong?

32 yr female w5 yr ulnar wrist pain. No motor loss. Burns/aches/numb. Painful to type, apply makeup, write. Xray, ncv, emg negative. Pain on pisotriquetral joint. Ulnar/median decompression. No mri. What's wrong?

Wrist pain: Without an mri- it sounds like wrist tendonitis with or without compression neuritis. I would consult an orhtopedic surgeon. Sometimes an injection of xylocaine (lidocaine) with a steroid will alleviate the pain. Also I always suggest the use of a pull on, neoprene tubular wrist support worn over a terry tennis wrist towel: it will really help. Read more

Wrist pain from soccer for 2 years, 1st doctor say physical therapy, 1 year later 2nd doctor say nothing wrong after x-ray, still feel pain, solution?

Xrays show bones: If someone has wrist pain for several years and the cause isn't clear it would be a good idea to be seen by a hand specialist. Xrays only show bones and it is possible that there is a problem with a tendon or a ligament that is being missed because it wouldn't show on an xray. Read more

Wrist pain when I move it up and down but not side to side. Even pulling my hand does not hurt. It seems to get better but always comes back. Thank yo?

Wrist pain when I move it up and down but not side to side. Even pulling my hand does not hurt. It seems to get better but always comes back. Thank yo?

Many possibilities: At the top of the list would be some form of wrist tendonitis but other possibilities would include latent injury such as unrecognized scaphoid fracture, ligament sprains, occult masses such as ganglia, avn of the lunate (kienbock's), and tfcc injury (though surely not a classic description). You should have a good exam with plain x-rays and possibly an mri. Best of luck. Read more

I've wrist pain & in thumb, can't pick things up & drop things. I fell 3.5 weeks ago on that side & had pain at time, it wouldn't be from that would it?

Trauma that lead to: Pain. Must be considered. Thumb ligament injury at the MCP joint, wrist fracture, in the radius or scaphoid are possible, as are other bone or ligament injury. Tendon pain giving pain with thumb extension near the wrist can be a sign of contusion or tendonitis. An evaluation that includes xrays is typically a good step to take for the symptoms and history described here Read more

Wrist pain Left only, on thumb side of wrist and down a little toward thumb. Can't lift/lean on it ~5 days. Appt next week. What to do til appt?

Wrist splint and ice: You can always go into an urgent care to get X-rays immediately. To wait until your appointment, you could buy a wrist splint that also immobilizes your thumb to help relieve pain. Icing the painful area for 10-15 minutes a few times a day can also help. If not allergic, you can take Ibuprofen 600mg every 8 hours and also Tylenol (acetaminophen) 500mg every 6 hours as well to help reduce pain. Read more

Hi I have wrist pain when I move my hand up and down some thing is locking and creaking it is ligament problem what is cure of this problem answer me?

Wrist tendons: Can "creak" when fingers are moved, a common problem is tendonitis, especially at the base of the thumb near the radius as the thumb tendons move. Other areas can be involved and other structures like ligaments and bones can mke sound too but often this is dequervainsand it has a strong association with the "creaking" called peritendinous crepitans (fancy name for creaky tendon).

3 times random wrist pain Left only. Hurts with use & movement on back of hand side of wrist. What could cause this & what to do w/o paying for appt?

Wrist: If you have no fevers and no swelling in the area or redness the most appropriate thing to do initially would be to take Motrin over-the-counter if you do not have any problems with your kidneys and utilize ice rest and elevation. You can also obtain a wrist splint from your local pharmacy to immobilize the wrist to see if this helps Read more

Wrist pain...Hurts when move side to side and up and down...Comes and goes...No previous injury...In middle of wrist?

Wrist pain: Wrist pain with motion in an atraumitic hand can be a difficult diagnosis. Since it is with all axis of motion it most likely is a problem with the radiocarpal joint. An eval by a hand surgeon is essential. Good x-rays will help provide a diagnosis. Including kienbocks a vascular problem with a wrist bone. If still unsure an MRI will provide soft tissue imaging, possible a ganglion cyst. Read more

Wrist pain on one side when flexing it forward and picking things up. A few fingers are tingly too at times. Is this carpal tunnel?

Wrist pain on one side when flexing it forward and picking things up. A few fingers are tingly too at times. Is this carpal tunnel?

Nerve conductn tests: A nerve conduction test is an excellent objective way to define the presence of carpal tunnel as findings can be subtle. I agree w/Dr. Ott that a good exam will help alleviate your initial concerns as you are young to have carpal tunnel. Typically @ this point we see tendonitis that's irritating the nerve (or causing neuritis) Try Occupational/Hand therapy, splint at nite, better ergonomics, stretching. Read more

Carpel tunnel syndrome is killing me... Please help me... It has been 2 years that I'm facing wrist pain due to swollen tissue please help me to cure!

See a Hand Surgeon: Treatment protocol for carpal tunnel syndrome is first to confirm diagnosis by emg/nct. This can be performed by a neurologist or a rehab specialist. Once diagnosis is confirmed then patients start with prescription nsaids, wrist braces, sometimes steroid injection into the carpal tunnel and lastly surgical release. Majority of patients benefit from this treatment protocol. See a hand surgeon. Read more
