Dear *****ient, the main causes of wrist pain at your age are degenerative diseases first and foremost as a consequence of physical exhaustion and exertion during life.
The causes are osteoarthritis of the wrist, tendonitis of the wrist, all of which are injuries caused by overuse.
With the years the muscles of the wrist and forearm become weaker, and the wrist depends on these mucus structures for stability when they weaken the wrist is unstable and inflammation begins.
Other less common injuries are lesions of the articular cartilage of the wrist called triangular fibrocartilage,
but the treatment is to strengthen the muscles of the wrist and forearm with physiotherapy, an X-ray and analgesic such as Ibuprofen. avoid lifting weights with that hand
