What could be the cause for pain in the wrist that makes me difficult to even open a water bottle?

Hi, Why does my right wrist hurt so much. The pain started about 2 weeks ago. I am right handed very active still work, garden, exercise and do yoga and of course house work and yard work. I have being taking aspirin, it relieves the pain but then it returns, can't even open a water bottle. Help!

General & Family Physician 's  Response

The symptoms seem to be related to overuse of the wrist due to activities.

I suggest using anti-inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms.

I also suggest avoiding activities that overuse the wrist.

I recommend using cold compresses for local application.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
