Wrist Tendonitis with Cracking noise on my Wrist?!?

by Ervin Alvarado
(Salinas, PR)

Hello, I've had tendonitis for a long time, probably since I was a teenager (I'm 24 now).

I was really into working out but about a year ago I had to stop all excersices that required my left arm. :(

From time to time my wrist cracks and it hurts if I press on a particular spot of the wrist.

I really want to go back and hit the gym but I can't.

What should I do? Thanx

Hello Ervin.


1. So...you had lingering, annoying pain since you were a teenager? Describe how those years went, symptom-wise.

2. Why do you think you got Tendonitis when you were a teenager?

3. Did you have an injury and that started it, or?

4. Overall health?

5. Any pain/problem other than the left arm?

6. Describe in great detail symptoms in your left arm. Where, when, how what helps what hurts, duration, etc.

7. Where is the spot that hurts when you press on it? Is that the only place that hurts when you press on it?

I wouldn't worry about the cracking. Muscles are too tight compressing the wrist joint, so when you move it, the joint can't move smoothly.

Everybody cracks to some degree or other. It's not optimal, it's a good clue, but I wouldn't worry about it at the moment.

I'd worry about other things....
