In brief: Dominant hand?

You may want to see an osteopathic physician, who can examine you by doing an osteopathic examination of your neck, spine, upper extremities: arm, elbow, wrist, thumbs.
Sometimes, there is a relationship between dysfunction of your wrist, from findings in the neck area that may be in spasm. This is difficult to do without a musculoskeletal examination. Once identified, it is easy to treat. Be seen soon, and get relief.
