Hello....... It's is a painful condition affecting the tendons on the thumb side of your wrist.Exact cause of de Quervain's tenosynovitis isn't known, any activity that relies on repetitive hand or wrist movement such as working in the garden, playing golf or racket sports, can make it worse ..consult orthopedic surgeon.
