Wrist pain

Posted by @leslielee in Just Want to Talk, Jun 17, 2012

Hi Everyone, I'm new here, and hoping that someone might be able to help. About 3 weeks ago i started having really bad wrist pain under my thumb joint, and despite splinting, non-usage, icing, heating, ibuprofen, and doing nothing, I still feel a sharp pain when I move my wrist, say, to turn a doorknob counterclockwise, or open a jar. I've been told I may be suffering from de Quervain's syndrome. Any suggestions or experience to share??? Help!

It does sound like you have that condition. I've had it twice, each time after having babies. You should go to your doctor and get a referral for physical therapy. There's good information on the Mayo Clinic about the condition and treatment. You can get relief from the pain!
