Wrist tendonitis

Post by kidkurious » Sun Apr 22, 2007 11:19 pm

last year, I injured my wrist while doing bent-over barbell row:
On my last rep, I heard something in my wrist stretch, but it didn't hurt.
The next day, it hurt whenever I would use the muscle and ROM was limited in my wrist.

I re-injured it 2 months later while lifting some heavy objects at work.

My wrist is still recovering, and i'm starting to think I have wrist tendonitis.

Whenever I rotate my wrist, I can hear a clicking noise.
When I lift heavy objects in a barbell curl movement, the muscle in my wrist begins to hurt.

Should I consult a doctor or something?

I want to workout again, but I'm supposed to avoid exercises that use the wrist... and I can't think of any exercises that don't use the wrists

after doing some research, I believe I have what is called a TFCC injury.
After reading it up online and looking at diagrams, my symptoms perfectly match a TFCC injury...

Does anybody have experience with this kind of problem? please share.

If the pain in your wrist persists for more than 2 weeks, see a doctor and get a professional diagnosis. If your injury is a Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex, you might require surgery

thanks!

if it is a TFCC injury, should I avoid all exercises? or just the one that got me injured?

It's been almost 2 weeks since your first post - how does the wrist feel now? Better, worse or the same?

If it doesn't feel better, and the pain worries you, I would go to a doctor immediately

maybe you could use straps until you get your wrists sorted out. Or is the problem higher up where the straps would be?

at least i'm pretty sure this is it... the symptoms listed on this site match mine: http://www.med.umich.edu/1libr/sma/sma_trifibcc_sma.htm

From reading your posts, one can only conclude that you have an aversion to seeing a doctor about your wrist. All that can be said is that nobody on this board can wave a magic wand and make your wrist ailment disappear.

Quadfrog went to a doctor and got treated for a heart ailment. He could have blown off the doctor's appointment and asked people on this board what to do. Speaking for myself, I don't do cardiac stents from my keyboard.
