Confused as I stopped typing but still have carpal tunnel and wrist tendonitis symptoms

by Lorena
(Brownsville, Tx)

A few months ago I started getting pains in my wrist and numbing of my middle finger and thumb, which I blamed my use of the computer for 8 hrs/day.

I figured it was the early signs of CTS. About 3 months, I swithched jobs and my new job doesn't require much computer use.

But now my outter wrist and forearm seem to hurt. I also have this bump that protrudes when I bend my wrist down.

Now I'm confused as to what it may be, especially since I haven't been using the computer as much as before. I don't know if this makes a difference, but for as long as I can remember, I've always had issues on that wrist.

For example, I've never been able to put my complete weight on it because it seems to give out. Or I'll simply get a sharp pain shoot up and it hurts.

I need to know if a wrist band will help and what this bump on the outter wrist is. Please help.

Hi Lorenna.

Just because you changed jobs and aren't typing as much anymore doesn't mean that the mechanisms of Tendonitis.

Due to how the Pain Causing Dynamic works, once negative factors set in, and build up and change the ecology of your body, the mechanism is in place.

Rest doesn't fix tendonitis or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

like Wrist splints and braces don't protect you from further pain or problem.

1. Will a wrist band help? I have no idea. Try it out and see. Will it fix the problem? Basically, no.

2. What is the bump on your wrist? I don't know. Maybe if you describe it to me as best you can I'll have an opinion, or even just more questions.

3. Say more about 'never been able to put weight on it'. What does that mean, exactly?
