Suggest treatment for wrist pain
its almost 6 months now. The pain is mostly experienced in the morning when I get up from bed. Then slowly it vanishes. But when I try a wrist twisting act it hurts. I experienced this also while playing table tennis few days back when my wrist twisted.
Even low if I try to itch my back with my thumb, it locks. And while pushing the thumb it pains a lot.
the location of the pain has been pointed out by my finger in the attached snap.
Trigger thumb. Medicine, splint, surgery
Welcome to Healthcare Magic.
Thanks for the query.
Have you ever sustained trauma to your wrist?
What is your Occupation?
Do you lift heavy weights?
You could be having a condition called Trigger thumb.
This occurs due to inflammation of the tendon sheath of the thumb.
You can apply ice, use a thumb spica splint try to unlock your thumb but do not do it forcefully.
Also you can take Anti inflammatory Medicine like Tablet Aceproxyvon twice a day for 5 days. If the symptoms do not resolve in a couple of weeks, a steroid shot can be given near the thumb and palm junction which will relieve symptoms. I usually recommended surgery to release the the tight tendons. This shall provide best relief.
I hope I have answered your query.
I will be available to answer your follow up queries.
