Popping Wrist and Elbow Tendinitis with Dequervains

About a year ago I sustained an injury to my wrist through repetitive use of lifting with my wrist a heavy object.

I am uninsured but have had physical therapy and a diagnosis. It's not overly painful but the popping and clicking that seemed like bone movement to me was getting worse. It seemed to spread to my elbow and arm with an aching sensation and after use of a brace my thumb got involved and now my pinky.

Before my wrist makes the popping noises it's usually quite achey. Cold packs seem to make my wrist pop more often and hence more achey. I would be interested in testing one of your products but it seems as though I would have to buy three in order to solve my issues. I have almost stopped using my right arm altogether. I am a writer and typing is extremely difficult for me and aggravates my arm and wrist.

I'm 37 and a healthy exercising vegetarian. Please advise.

Thank you.

Hello Anonymous.

You don't need three different products. Reversing Wrist Tendonitis ebook would do you just fine.

Short of some related thumb work, the forearm is the location of the source.

You describe a great example of Pain Causing Dynamic.

Tendonitis is a progressive mechanism involving several factors.

See: What Is Tendonitis

One of those factors is muscle tightness. When muscles are tight, they compress joints. Then joints pop/crack when you try to move them because they're not 'floating' and thus can glide like they ideally should.

I'd be very interested in your nutritional situation too.

1. How are symptoms now?

2. How old are you?

3. Any other pain/problems?

4. Are your joints hypermobile? (Can you touch your thumb to your forearm, does your elbow go past a straight line when you straighten your arm/elbow?)

Please reply using the comment link below. Do not submit a new submission to answer/reply, it's too hard for me to find where it's supposed to go.

I did purchase your wrist tendonitis ebook. Although I did the prescribed exercises and dunkings, I still had issues with popping (the cold seems to make it pop more easily), but the pain began to subside. I sort of gave up after a bit and the popping stopped also until recently when I was playing a game (somewhat excessively). Pain and popping are back, but I did go probably a month or two with no symptoms.

I'm 37, vegetarian and do not have hyper-extending joints. My funny bone nerve is sensitive to massage and that's where I have the most arm pain outside of the tension that builds up in my wrist before it pops.

Thank you for your response.

Hey there.

1. Why did you give up if the pain was subsiding?

2. Have you started up again now that the pain and popping has returned.

The tools you learn in the ebooks will make pain go away if you do them enough. If you keep doing them even after the pain is gone, you continue to make your structure(s) more and more healthy.

Sounds like you need to start the self care again, and that absolutely includes the nutrition.
