Six Months of Wrist Tendonitis, don't want to have it the rest of my life

by 100DollarMouse

Hi, It's been 6 months and I still have wrist tendonitis...

at least I think thats what it is.. first off when I first noticed it hurting I went to a doctor they told me it was wrist tendonitis gave me some sort of advil and told me to rest my wrist now.. I tried not to use my wrist and I took the pills... and my wrist it didn't hurt not until I'd get on my computer and put my hand on the mouse it would suddenly feel weird and the longer I left it on I'd start to feel pain...

Now... I tried my best by icing it and everything for at least 1-2 months and sort of gave up.. I still try to stop using my wrist when it starts hurting but it really isn't that bad at all.. it's more annoying and sometimes I feel it in my muscle just before my elbow..

i'm 21 years old.. I know the cause of it is most likely my mouse I bought a 100$ ergonomic mouse.. but yeah.. I'm just confused and I really want it to heal and it seems the doctors I go to don't know anything about it so now i'm about to try heat.. and then exercising my wrist and my arms not sure if that's the best idea ..

just want your take on this and wondering if I should do that next or what you think I should do.. also I haven't noticed it get worse.. I can play on my computer and not have any pain for about 2 hours sometimes longer and the pain is so little....

not wanting to go to a doctor again but I might have too.. I don't want to live with this the rest of my life.

Hi $100DollarMouse!

Sure. Exercise is always good...if it helps more than it irritates whatever ongoing Tendonitis dynamic that you have.

It's predictable that slowly or quickly, over time, your Symptoms of Tendonitis will get worse and worse.

You don't want to live with it the rest of
your life. Great! Then let's start getting rid of it.

First off, you have to do the RIGHT things, and you can't stop till it's better. And it may take some ongoing maintenance over time.

A bunch of time and effort at first, and then less and less.

You have to effectively reverse the Pain Causing Dynamic. Tight muscles, tight connective tissue, and everything involved with the Process of Inflammation you have going on.

Should you get my Reversing Wrist Tendonitis ebook. Yes, you probably should.

Why? Because it's got a complete plan and everything you need to know.

You say you can play for 2 hours and just have a little pain. Great. But what if you could do that, spend just a little bit of time to get rid of the pain, and help it not ever get worse?

Maybe you don't need to totally fix the problem, and you just want to keep your structure happy enough such that you don't have to worry about it.

That's totally valid too.

Either way, you need to learn how to reduce the pain, and make the ecology of your forearm and wrist and hand healthy.

There's plenty about that on my site, like learning How To Reduce Inflammation.

You said you were icing. Were you ice dipping?

Joshua Comments:

There's plenty of info on the site, keep reading around.

Tendonitis can progress until it's debilitating, but that's not really 'something else', just more of the same.

Keep reading.
