What is wrong with my wrist? I have been having trouble with my wrist for about 2 years. There is a sharp pain shooting from the middle of my wrist to my index finger and mainly my thumb.

In brief: First

First off, i want to tell you that i cannot diagnose your wrist problem. Your symptoms might be consistent with carpal tunnel syndrome.
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve gets compressed at the wrist. Symptoms can include pain, numbness, or tingling in the palm, wrist, thumb, or fingers. The thumb can become weak. Possible causes can include making repetitive wrist movements (like typing for a living), obesity, pregnancy, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. Please talk to your doctor about an evaluation by a hand surgeon.
