 Apart from injuries, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common cause of wrist pain. You may feel aching, burning, numbness, or tingling in your palm, wrist, thumbs, or fingers. The thumb muscle can become weak, making it difficult to grasp things. Pain may extend up to your elbow. Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when an important nerve called the median nerve gets compressed at the wrist because of swelling. Such swelling can occur if you do repetitive movements with your wrist such as typing on a computer keyboard, using a computer mouse, playing racquetball or handball, sewing, painting, writing, or using a vibrating tool. It can also occur if you are pregnant, menopausal, or overweight or if you have diabetes, premenstrual syndrome, an underactive thyroid, or rheumatoid arthritis. If the pain is accompanied with fever or irregular heart beats, consult your doctor as soon as you can. Over the counter pain medications like ibuprofen or naproxen can relieve pain and swelling. Various mouse pads, typing pads, split keyboards, and wrist splints or braces are designed to relieve wrist pain. Some people find these devices help their symptoms. You may wish to try a few different kinds to see if any help. You may only need to wear a wrist splint at night while you sleep. This helps reduce the swelling. If that alone is not working, wear the splints during the day and apply hot or cold compresses periodically.
