In brief: Complex question

Several reasons can cause wrist pain, from osteoarthritis, to ligament injury.
Fractures and dislocations could also be the reason. Kiembock's dz and preiser. For a more specific answer you need to see a specialist.

In brief: Many things are part

Of the wrist, thus many things can hurt too.
Bone, tendon, joint, nerve, blood vessel, skin all can be a source of wrist pain. Tendonitis is a common cause, as is arthritis in the tumb base and carpal tunnel compression. But the take haome answer is anything that gets a nerve supply ( which is everything) can be a source of pain. Hand surgeons can offer diagnosis & rx for this very complex region.
