Brief Answer:
It can be XXXXXXX to ECU tendinitis

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have studied your case and I think you are having extensor carpi ulnaris muscle tendinitis. In this condition there is accumulation of fluid in the tendon sheath of wrist.This is usually caused any have weight lifting or exercises. I would suggest you following.
1.Hot water fomentation.
2.Tablet Etoricoxib 90 mg one tablet daily.
3.Brugel local application.
4.Compression bandage.
I hope these steps will be helpful for you.In rare cases you need to give steroid injection. I hope this answer will be useful for you.Let me know if there is any other followup questions.
