“What is wrist pain a symptom of?”
Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii
Carpal Tunnel Answers by Doctors:
There are several health conditions that can cause wrist pain. The most common is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, but there are others that range from Gout, to Arthritis, to DeQuervain’s Disease and to Tendonitis. Wrist pain can also be caused by trauma or injury from falling and catching yourself with your hands.
Many of these causes can be interrelated. For instance; Arthritis, Gout, Tendonitis, Dequervain’s Disease and trauma can contribute to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This is where the Median Nerve gets pinched in the Carpal Tunnel section of anatomy at the base of the hand.
Carpal Tunnel can result in discomfort in any joint or muscle between the tips of the fingers and neck following the path of the Median Nerve. Often people are confused when they feel pain in a joint that is not anywhere near the Carpal Tunnel. In fact many people with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome never even experience wrist pain. CTS can exhibit itself in a multitude of different symptoms from numb finger tips to aching shoulders or even an achy neck. For more information about other Carpal Tunnel Symptoms, click here.
Because people often feel wrist pain with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, they believe that the Carpal Tunnel anatomy is in the wrist. Actually, it is at the base of the hand between the two muscle pads on the palm side of the hand. The narrow anatomy known as the Carpal Tunnel is not in the wrist.
Because the wrist is the first joint next to the Carpal Tunnel as the Median Nerve travels back to the sensory center in the cortex of the brain, this is where pain with Carpal Tunnel is often focused.
This is why Wrist Pain is one of the most common symptoms of CTS.
So, how can you know what is causing your wrist pain?
Well, it is always good to see a Doctor for a formal diagnosis. Your Doctor can do blood tests, grip strength test or order a nerve conductivity study by a Neurologists to determine the cause.
However, if you have any other symptoms associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, such as tingling in the hands or tingling fingers, hand numbness, itchy palms or pain in other joints such as the fingers, elbows, shoulder or neck – if you have lack of sensitivity in the finger tips, loss of fine motor skills, or waking up at night with numb hands, chances are very high that you have CTS.
