Continuing wrist pain after golfing and now stiff fingers

by Robert Gordon
(Washington, DC)

I am a 64 year old man and an avid golfer. I recently visited my daughter and spent about a week helping with her new born twins, holding them, rocking them etc.

I also went to the driving range and hit a large bucket of balls. The next day my hand was painful but I had a long standing golf date and the next day played a round of golf.

I had trouble holding the clubs. After that my right hand has been in great pain. My general practioner and an orthopedic specialist both say its tendonitis/sprain in the tendon. They took xrays and saw no broken bone.

I am writing to get another opinion. The pain is in my right hand (i am righty). It is in two places: 1) about 1/4 of the way up on the edge of my hand on the pinky side between the wrist bone on that side and the base of the pinky. 2) in the center of my wrist, palm side beneath the large thumb muscle and the pinky muscle and immediately between them.

The pain is always there, three weeks now, but comes and goes in intensity. Advil helps a bit.

What do I do next?

Hi Robert.

There is a huge difference between Tendonitis and
a strain. It's a bit weird to me that your guys lumped them together.

Having said that, it doesn't -really- matter what they call it, as the activities required to get you back in the game are the same.

Wrist Tendonitis is no big deal to get rid of, you just have to know what you're doing.

Obviously I'm biased and think that you should get the complete plan that's in my Reversing Wrist Tendonitis ebook.

Or you could start with:

Learning How To Reduce Inflammation

and learning about Magnesium for Tendonitis
