Hello! I injured my outer wrist (where it bends)while bench

Hello! I injured my outer wrist (where it bends)while bench pressing almost 3 weeks go and still have very slight pain when attempting to lift weights. It started off as a sharp pain that slowly improved to the “uncomfortable” dull pain it is now. It never swelled and because it improved I assumed it was a sprain. Day to day activities it almost goes unnoticed unless randomly positioned a certain way. Is this Normal progression for this kind of injury?

Hello, About two months ago I injured my wrist. I think I slept on it weirdly and I was in a lot of pain. I went into A&E and they said it was a sprain and gave me a bandage for it. Since then, the pain had slowly gone away, however I have noticed a lump on my wrist (where I was hurt). It has been there for a while now. It is on the top of my wrist so not the palm side. What could it be?

Hello, around 3 pm both of my wrists started aching, like a dull bone ache, and it has gotten a little more noticeable by evening. Ice and rest bother my wrists as well. I haven t injured my wrists and have done nothing different out of the ordinary. I don t spend much time on a computer, I am a teacher. Any ideas?

On my right hand, on the pinky side, is that the ulnar bone or the radius bone? At the wrist point, where I been my hand or wrist, I can tell that that bone is larger than the one on my left wrist. Why would the right be larger and not the same size as the left? I did injure my wrist a few years ago, it was a sprain and a ruptured ganglion cyst in my hand. I fell on it while my hand was outstretched. I m not sure if this is a swollen bone or something or from that injury or what? But my doctor once said she thought the other one was larger as just the same as the other. What are some ideas as to why it is larger than the left wrist bone? Thanks
