Customer Question
My wrist aches from time...
My wrist aches from time to time and sometimes I feel it almost as if it's pinching a nerve. Will I need surgery for this? Should I see a doctor or it's nothing really that can be done now?

I use a mobile phone a lot. I have no neck pain that radiates to my arm. Sometimes my arm has felt warm in the past but that isn't happening at the moment.

It's not severe but bothers from time to time.

Dear,

Sorry for delay in reply.

Well, such symptoms can occur due to repetitive stress/ carpal tunnel syndrome.

Your doctor may suggest, Electromyography test, It can check how median nerve is being compressed and the effect it is having on your symptoms.

The line of treatment is-

1. Wrist splint. It has to be worn at night to support the wrist and keep it in the same position.
2. The use of Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug such as ibuprofen, also helps in relief from the symptoms.
3. Physical therapy will also be helpful. It includes- Short wave diathermy, Infra red, Wax therapy.
4. Also the use of Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), is very helpful.
5. In case, symptoms doesn't improve then Corticosteroids can be prescribed. Sometimes, anti-depressant drugs are even prescribed to get rid of numbness.
6. You should avoid over exposure to cold temperature.

It is too early to think for surgery. Your symptoms would improve with measures, as discussed above.

Please follow above measures, and consult your doctor for further evaluation.

Hope this helped
