I dont know what is wrong w/ my wrist but for about a year, i have been having a really bad pain. I cannot bend my right wrist inward. When i bend my wrist inward, it feels like a knife is inside my wrist on the inside part of the "pinky" side of my wrist. Now, the top of my wrist is hurting. I did not do anything to hurt my wrist and i havent been training for years. It just gradually started about a year ago. The pain does not seem consistent with what i have read about carpel tunnel. If any of you have any insight of what this could be, I would greatly appreciate your feedback.

thanks.

1st suggestion: nothing

2nd suggestion: where is the funny bone?

3rd suggestion: if i were to face my right palm up towards my face and put my left index finger in the center and then bring it towards my forearm. As soon as i get to my wrist, i go towards my pinky away from my thum. That side of my wrist hurts extremely bad. If i make a fist and act like im flexing my bicep, i cant move my fist past 90 degrees. Remember, i did not do anything hurt my wrist. I never fell down, no training accidents (havent trained in years), havent punched anything, etc....

thanks alot

okay so im going to do a little research with some of the info that you provided. In the past 10 years, i have probably been to the doctor twice (not in reference to this) so im not someone who goes to the doctor alot. I guess the best thing to do would be to see someone due to the intricacies involved. so, who should i see? a regular doctor? hand specialist? i literally have no clue

okay, so after a quick review of wikipedia, i would say that im leaning in the direction of the carpi ulnaris. So if this has become inflamed, how do i remediate it? medication, exercises? thanks

btw, my grip strength, only on the right half of my hand has been reduced by about 30%

more information.

upon further reading, im feeling confident in an "inflamed" or "snapped" extensor carpi ulnaris. I never made the connection, but i was in several ping pong tournaments and used to play for hours at a time. Due to this being in my right wrist which is my primary ping pong playing hand along with the location isolated to the general area of the carpi ulnaris and the sypmtoms read on a few websites, i think that im narrowing it down. So, what should i do? meds? exercises? surgery?

thanks
