What is the reason for me to get shooting pain in my right wrist as I am suffering from Arthritis ?

Over the past year or so i ve noticed that whenever i lean on my right wirst i normally get a shooting pain and this would last for 2 - 3 minutes after i stop leaning on it and sometimes i ll get shooting pains up my arm. I suffer from both Arthirtis and osteoporosis , but as far as i know i dont suffer from it in my wrist, or that i have suffered any injury to my wrist. Is it like some sort of stiffness?

General & Family Physician Dr. Tina Jacob Das's  Response
thank you for trusting healthcare magic. The kind of pain you have mentioned could be due to a minor wrist injury/ sprain or a tendonitis(inflamation of the tendon sheath, which are very common. Else it could be some nerve compression, of course even arthritic in origin. Since you already gave a history of same, pain could be due to that.Certain arthritic pain , might even spread to other joints.So now you can corelate from what had happend to you. In all circumstances, i would suggest you to get X-rays, MRI(if required) done and consult orthopedician.
