I've experienced pain in my wrist/hand since November 2015 to the point where I can't use my wrist without the use of a splint. The pain is exacerbated by movement and using the hand and often when I'm not using it. I get no numbness or tingling (this did occur when I initially started to get symptoms)
Despite using the splint, I have pain when my hand is knocked against something also.
I fractured my wrist in 1997, the consultant feels this may have a negative impact as one of the bones in my arm is shorter than the other. He also thinks I could have Rheumatoid Arthritis which would explain the swelling on my hand.
I've had an Emg/nerve conduction test which came back clear. I've been booked on for blood tests to rule out RA and MRI arthrogram is booked for 07/04/16.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what the pain may be caused by? CTS and de Quvervains tenosynovitis have been ruled out.
My current job is in administration and very repetitive thus one would assume that OA would be the diagnosis. I am unsure why RA symptoms would suddenly start?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
