Reasons for Wrist Pain

Mayo Clinic defines wrist pain as often caused by sprains or fractures from sudden injuries. But wrist pain can also result from long-term problems, such as repetitive stress, arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Because so many factors can lead to wrist pain, diagnosing the exact cause can be difficult, but an accurate diagnosis is essential for proper treatment and healing.

Symptoms

Wrist pain may vary, depending on the cause. For example, osteoarthritis pain is often described as being similar to a dull toothache, while carpal tunnel syndrome usually causes a pins-and-needles feeling or a tingling sensation, especially at night. The precise location of your wrist pain also provides clues to what’s behind your symptoms.

 

The following conditions are common causes of wrist pain.

Carpal tunnel syndrome

The median nerve is one of the three major nerves in the forearm. Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve becomes compressed, or pinched. It is located on the palm side of your hand, providing sensation to the following parts of the hand:

  • thumb
  • index finger
  • middle finger
  • part of the ring finger

It also provides the electrical impulse to the muscle leading to the thumb. Carpal tunnel syndrome can occur in one or both of your hands.

Swelling in the wrist causes the compression in carpal tunnel syndrome. The pain is due to excess pressure in your wrist and on the median nerve.

Aside from causing wrist pain, carpal tunnel syndrome can lead to numbness, weakness, and tingling on the side of your hand near the thumb.

Wrist swelling can occur and trigger carpal tunnel syndrome due to any of the following conditions:

  • performing repetitive tasks with your hands, such as typing, drawing, or sewing
  • being overweight, pregnant, or going through menopause
  • having certain medical conditions, such as diabetes, arthritis, or an underactive thyroid

Wrist injury

An injury to your wrist can also cause pain. Wrist injuries include sprains, broken bones, and tendonitis.

Swelling, bruising, or disfigured joints near the wrist may be symptoms of a wrist injury. Some wrist injuries can happen right away due to the trauma of an impact. Others may develop slowly over time.

Gout

Gout is caused by a buildup of uric acid. Uric acid is a chemical produced when your body breaks down foods that contain organic compounds called purines.

Most uric acid is dissolved in the blood and removed from the body through urination. In some cases, however, the body produces too much uric acid.

The excess uric acid can be deposited in the joints, resulting in pain and swelling. This pain frequently occurs in the knees, ankles, wrists, and feet.

Common causes of gout include:

  • drinking too much alcohol
  • overeating
  • certain medications, such as diuretics
  • other conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and kidney disease

Arthritis

Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints. The condition can cause swelling and stiffness in the affected body part. Arthritis has many causes, including normal wear and tear, aging, and overworking the hands.

There are many forms of arthritis, but the most common types include:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that usually affects both wrists. It develops when the immune system mistakenly attacks the lining of your joints, including your wrists. This can cause painful swelling, which may eventually result in bone erosion.
  • Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease that’s common among older adults. It is caused by a breakdown of the cartilage that covers the joints. The protective tissue is damaged by age and repeated motion. This increases the friction as the bones of the joint rub against each other, resulting in swelling and pain.
  • Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a type of arthritis that occurs in people with a skin disorder called psoriasis.
