Four weeks ago I fell over and broke my wrist. I had a fiberglass cast on for the first three weeks. However, this was taken off as I was experiencing pain and numbness in my thumb and fingers.
I now have a brace supporting my thumb and wrist and it does feel slightly better than the cast.
I was first told that I have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome,although having seen a different consultant todayI have been told that as the main area of pain is towards my thumb (about two inches below my thumb) rather than in the middle of my wrist it isn't CPS. He thinks there is some nerve damage and has arranged for me to have four weeks of physiotherapy before they make a decision on what to do.
I was wondering if anyone else has had this after a wrist fracture..and what the outcome was..
