Sharp Electric Pain When I Bend My Wrist Back
I have a two inch long swelling on the under side (palm side) of my right forearm, starting at the base of my wrist and running down my forearm toward my elbow.
This swelling is slightly right of the center of the forearm. I only occasionally have a low grade, dull, throbbing pain in my wrist or forearm. The bigger issues are that my palm is numb and when I bend my wrist hard backward, like when doing push-up, I get a sharp electric like pain running from my palm into my forearm.
I have stopped doing push-ups and try not to bend my wrist in this direction, and the numbness has lessened and the electric pain is harder to duplicate now.
Interestingly, I noticed the palm numbness and electric pain a week to ten days before the tendon swelling.
It sounds like the muscles and connective tissue in your forearm, that wraps the wrist, hand, forearm, the tendons that cross the joint, etc, are too tight.
That's the Tendonitis
Specifically tight such that when you
bend your wrist back, it compresses/pinches/pulls on the carpal tunnel.
And since the nerve that passes through the carpal tunnel is wrapped in connective tissue that is connected to all that other connective tissue, and since it's all shrunkwrapped down, the nerve gets squeezed/irritated.
Technically, that qualifies you as having Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
