Doctor:Most likely, you may be having soft tissue inflammation, conditions like synovitis, or tendonitis

Doctor:reduce any form of stress, like working with the hand, to only that are needed
Doctor:the wrist splint is available in most pharmacies,

Doctor:take either of the tablet, when u have severe pain
Doctor:also apply some heat or ice, to the area, it will numb the pain and also help in healing

Doctor:In case, you have severe pain, and the above measures are not helping, you may need to consult with a orthopedician, for a physical examination
User:x-ray is normal
Doctor:soft tissue injuries, do not appear on X rays
Doctor:They need modalities like MRI
Doctor:but in your case they are not needed
User:ohh ok
Doctor:as it seems to be a mild one
