Hi, About two months ago, I started to feel the pain in my wrist and palm of my hand, when I was working hard, especially when I worked on my laptop for long continuous hours, but recently the pain became permanent and comes with even small effort, it became difficult to open the door handle or carry a jug of water or even cut vegetables. Please advise me.
Thank you very much.
