What causes wrist pain?

Well I have had pain in my wrist for awhile now and it s only when I apply pressure on it. The top of my wrist hurts and well I play guitar and work in construction so applying pressure for a long time or trying to apply a lot of pressure on it causes it to hurt, but other wise it doesn t hurt it only hurts when I apply pressure. What could it be and can it get better? I really hope so because I need to apply pressure on it for a living. If you could help please an thanks.oh and it s my left hand. Thanks!:)
