What causes wrist pain?

Hi, I have pain in my left wrist but can t pin point exactly where it s coming from, it hurts more on bending hand forward rather than flexing it back an I can feel pain I think on the inside of my right lower side of wrist and on the right top of the hand but also keep getting shooting pains in my little finger (which is the other side to the pain obviously!) Any ideas whether this is just a tendinitis thing that will sort itself or whether I need to go get it checked please??

Dear Sir/Madam
I have gone through your query and read your symptoms.
In my opinion, since there are many causes of wrist pain, so please see a hand surgeon, as no empirical treatment can be beneficial here , you could have keinbocks disease, or ligament rupture, or CTS, but that can only be judged by tests.
I hope that answers your query. If you want any more clarification, contact me back.
