if there is no history of trauma then xray is not necessary right now..if the pain occurs while doing wrist movements then probably it is related to your hand tendons..might be because of continuous use inflation occurs and it causes pain..will advice you to give rest to your hand for few days and hot fomentation twice a day along with antiinflammatory medicines If required...if no pain relief with rest and fomentation then show to nearby orthopedic consultant..
