I am a 33 year old female. I have had constant pain, swelling, instability, numbness, loss of grip and achyness in my right hand and wrist. I had an MRI done w/O contrast and this is what some of it says: There are degenerative changes of the lunate that are likely the result of lunate impaction and there is positive ulnar variance. No triangular fibrocaetilage meniscus tear is seen. Dorsal soft tissue swelling, which can be seen with recent rupture of ganglion cyst. No dorsal ganglion identified. Small volar ganglion Osseous structures: there is chondromalacia of the proximal ulnar aspect of the lunate with subcortical cyst formation. The findings are likely chronic ulnar lunate impaction. There is a slight positive ulnar variance. There is no evidence for fracture or avn. Triangular fibrocaetilagecomplex: Mild fraying of the meniscus but no tear seen. I fell 20 feet from a roof 11 years ago and broke both wrists. You can see that my wrists are offset. I have been a typist for the last 13 years typing 90% of the time. What does all of this mean. The ortho I was seeing received the MRI and then referred me to a hand specialist. No one has explained anything to me.

I hurt my wrist last Saturday at work. I went to the emergency room and the dr just looked at it and said its sprained no xray or anything. He said it would take 3 to 7 days to heal. Its been almost 9 days and still looks the same There is minimial swelling no brusing and I can move it with slight pain. Its my right wrist and there is a large bone like felling lump on the left side right across from where the bone it. could it be worse than the sprain the emergency room dr said it is?
