In brief: Wrist pain

The combination of wrist pain and swelling, unless caused by injury, suggests acute arthritis but not a blood clot or caused by nerve pathology.
There are various types of acute arthritis such as rheumatoid, gout, psoriatic, osteoarthritis,etc. Treat it with cold applications and,if you can take them, anti-inflammatory medications like Advil. See your physician or a rheumatologist for diagnosis.
