Last Friday, all of a sudden, my right wrist near the bone at the base of my thumb started hurting. Mostly when I moved it in certain directions. My initial reaction was to crack it (grimace), so that might have made the situation worse.
Then at first I was thinking it might be carpal tunnel, since I've been using the computer a LOT at home and I am at a computer desk at work all the time. But I'm only 29 and it's only been about 3 years that I've used computers intensely. Also, I do NOT have any tingling, numbness, or lack of use of any part of my hand, and when I do the carpal tunnel self-tests, none of them affect me.
Now that I read symptoms of wrist tendonitis, I'm thinking now that this is the problem, not carpal tunnel.
The pain is sharp when I stretch my thumb outward and/or down. That's mainly when I feel pain.
