Nerve conductn tests: A nerve conduction test is an excellent objective way to define the presence of carpal tunnel as findings can be subtle.

It depends: Wrist pain can be caused by many things. Doctors are trained to make a diagnosis and treat. The treatment for pain of arthritis (anti-inflammatants) is different from the treatment for carpal tunnel pain (surgery or splints) which is different from trauma pain (rest/casting or sometimes surgery or physical therapy) which is different for nerve pain, etc. See your doctor for a diagnosis.See 1 more doctor answer
