Hello J.

Well, I can't diagnose, and if I could I'd still need more information.

And, anytime there's a lump I'm rather duty bound to say "Get that checked out by your doctor to make sure that it's not a tumor.

Having said that...

1. Why exactly to you think that it is Wrist Tendonitis, as opposed to anything else?

2. Where exactly is the lump? Is if floating, or right on a tendon? Is it a lump like swelling, or a hard lump, or?

3. What do you do with your hands all day, historically?

If you think you have tendonitis, it's safe to say that at the very least you have a Pain Causing Dynamic of progressive muscle tightness and pain.

PART 2 - wrist tendonitis - All The Symptoms of Wrist Tendonitis and a lump, what do you think it is?
by: jade

its a hump on top of my wrist on the bone a friend of mine who had wrist tendonitis said its inflammation on the tendon thats causing it to swell and yes it is a hard bump it hurts when i apply pressure...

and u asked what to i do with my hands all day i work at walmart doing lifting and using a register which my hands are constantly in a repetitive motion...

my entire arm sometimes goes numb and tingles alittle burning feeling.and aches blood not circualting well sometimes my arm feels heavy i think it all has to do with my wrist...

its been llike this for nearly a month now but getting worse everyday rather than better

i take ibuprofen for the pain so i can get through the day...the lump on my wrist is on the inside on top of bone and its not too big its about the same size as my fingertip...i cant afford the doctor right now cause i have no insurance so thats why im trying to find out if its serious before taking the trip to the ER...

any more information u might have that may be useful with help...thanks for responding so quickly..

Hi Jade.

I really can't advise you on the lump thing.

-Probably- it's just a function of the Process of Inflammation you have as part of a Pain Causing Dynamic from all the repetitive motion.

It's clear your body's just NOT happy right now.

I really can't say either way about the lump over email. Without seeing it, without feeling what's going on......

Having said that, learn How To Reduce Inflammation.

Were I you I would start Ice Dipping intensely, 30+ times/day, WAY more than that on your days off.

You -have- to dial down the inflammation process, that's the first thing. Ibuprofen just isn't going to do the job.

And since Inflammation Causes Vitamin B6 Deficiency I'd start taking Vitamin B6, just in case. 100-300mg is documented safe and effective.

I'd also consider taking Magnesium for your Tendonitis dynamic.

Might as well add more good protein to your diet too.

Ice Dipping WILL lower your pain levels if you do it enough. You're in acute pain, so it'll take 30+ dips and several days of that to notice a REAL difference. And you should notice benefit on the first day.
