Cannot make a fist and simultaneously bend wrist. Serious?

I cannot make a fist and then bend my left wrist at the same time. It feels almost like a very sore muscle or a sprain , but I haven t done any kind of exercise that would cause it. I don t type much with that hand , though I do tend to hold or fold it close to my chest when I sleep. Is this a serious problem? This is the second time this has happened in a month.

Thanks for posting your query.

You might having inflammatory arthritis of fingers and wrist joint. So that there is stiffness and it is difficult to make fist.

I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination, proper diagnosis and treatment plan acc. to that.
