It was around October 2015 I fell and sprained my wrist. My doctor put me in a splint for 4 weeks. Then The doctor said it was healed and I could do normal things again. I told the doctor that it was still bothering me and he couldn't figure anything out so I got an MRI that didn't show anything. The doctor concluded that it was my mind saying that my wrist was still broken when it really wasent and I needed physical therapy. I now finished therapy and it's still bothering me. The therapist has said that it might always hurt. My wrist can pop and make loud noises too. Is that normal?

    Hi Brooke38297,  I am sorry you are still having trouble, the thing that caused me to reply is that you said your wrist can ' pop and make loud noises' which begs the question .... has your doctor heard this ?  I know wrist traumas can take quite a long time to settle and even then not everyone has 100%  'normality' afterwards.  If it were me with the problem I would continue the therapy for a few weeks then if no improvement made, maybe it should be investigated further, but do give it a fair chance first.

      Yes. The doctor told me that when my wrist sprained it got air inside some how. It surprised me too. I'm not sure if that's normal
