Having wrist pain after child birth, hurts while moving wrist. What could cause this?

Started having left wrist pain about a week after giving birth to son. He is now almost 5 months old and it is still there. Only hurts when I turn my wrist with pressure. Such as opening a drink or picking something up. Do not know if they are related but latley it has been worse and notice less intense pains outside of shoulder blades and dizzy ness. What could this be and should I be overly concerned or will it probalby be ok to wait till next week to see a doctor since I will be off then?

Your wrist problem is likely to be due to de Quervain tenosynovitis- affecting two of the tendons in the wrist.Other problems like a Carpal Tunnel Syndrome also needs exclusion.Your doctor will be able to guide you about treatment after making a specific diagnosis.

The pain you mention outside the shoulder blades are likely to be unrelated to your wrist pain and is likely to be due to myofascitis.The dizziness you complain about needs more detail before it can be commented about.

It might be ok to wait to see your doctor as your problems do not seem to be of an urgent nature.

Hope this helps!
