Thank you for that additional information.
I do not like that this has been going on since October without showing any improvement.....
And it is obvious that a steroid shot was not the cure.....
So. What to do?
At this point you need to see a different doctor and get a better workup.
I suggest consulting with an orthopedic surgeon. She will examine your wrist and, most likely, order an imaging study starting with a regular Xray and if needed an MRI.
You need a diagnosis-directed treatment plan at this point instead of just throwing a dose of steroids at the problem.
Until you can get in perhaps hot compresses, wrist brace, tylenol and rest will give you a little relief.
Does this make sense to you?
Don't forget to mash the positive feedback button for me...the one labeled "excellent" is the most fun to push by far ;)
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.

Have a Very Merry Holiday Season!
I hope your wrist feels better soon.
