Pop in wrist, numbness in fingers, tingling sensation, electric shock feeling in the arm, painful while sneezing, coughing. Reason?

About 3 weeks ago I experienced a pop in my right wrist with immediate pain. As time has progressed, my fingers are numb and I have been experiencing a tingling sensation in them constantly. However, I am now feeling an electric shock feeling going up and down my right arm. When I sneeze or cough the shock is worse and is very painful. What is the problem?

You should consult an orthopedist for the pop in your wrist:
- should do Xray to identify the origin of the pop (from the bones or soft tissues)

The numbness and tingling sensation is because of pressure this pop puts on the nerves passing by.

So, get examined as soon as possible in order to get treatment in time:
- surgery
- medications.
- physiotherapy

All the best!
