Hello malzy

Thanks for posting your query

After reading your desciption it seems that you might be suffering from Triangular fibrocartilage complex injury.

You required some clinical tests of your wrist & if it is suspected , it can be confirmed by MRI.

So you have to visit an orthopaedic surgeon for exam of wrist.
