Hi......, Two common causes of wrist pain are carpel tunnel syndrome and wrist tendonitis. Both problems are considered to be overuse injuries.... Decreasing the activity that caused the problem will help to relieve the symptoms. ..rest or taking more frequent breaks may help. Changing how the wrist and hand are used may also help..... Ice and anti-inflammatory medications can help with pain.....Consult orthopedician if symptoms persists....
