Hand shaking while writing, pain in wrist area. Causes and treatment?

Dear Dr. I have always had a not too fantastic writing from dayone. I am 46 years old. I noticed in May 2003 that my hand was shaking while writing and on that day I could not believe how bad my writing turned out. Since then, I have observed that my hand shakes only when I write and not otherwise. Yesterday I experienced such pain in my wrist area while writing that I had to stop and shake my hand to see whether the pain will go away and it eventually did. I have not been to any doctor yet and i need answers. It is embarrassing to have a hand that shakes when i write.

Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

I wish you had given as much details as possible.

However, from the limited information available, I think that you are suffering from Writers' Cramps along with Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, in which there is compression over the nerves which supply the hand muscles and also responsible for coordination of finer movements, such as writing.

So I suggest that you consult a Neurologist, who will examine you to see if there is any nerves' involvement or compression; order for relevant investigation if required; and, prescribe suitable medicines.
