Wrist Pain Possibly from Snow Boarding, Wrist Tendonitis or Wrist Injury?

by Rachel

I have been having a good amount of wrist pain and i can't pinpoint what to do to make it stop.

I have no health insurance so i cant just go in and check when i want. i've tried putting a wrap on my wrist, a splint. this has been going on for at least a year.

I do snowboard so i don't know if i did some injury to it then. but on certain days i cannot put pressure on my wrist what so ever.

i have to find other ways to do things that will not put pressure on it. it is right where you wrist and your hand bends that i am having the problem. sometimes the pain will spread into the top of the hand. i have even tried icy rub.

Hi Rachel.

Well, I'd need more details to have an opinion.

Because you either have a really bad case of Wrist Tendonitis, or a wrist injury possibly including a fracture, a torn tendon or ligament, etc.

Or something weird like cancer in the wrist.


1. How long has this pain been going on?

2. Did it come on suddenly out of the blue (like right after a snowboarding fall or crash, or the next day) or did it come on slowly and get worse and worse.

3. Describe the pain.

4. Is it constant 24/7, or does it come and go.

5. What all have you done for it. Has it helped a little or a lot?
