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.

Thank you for your questions. The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions due to the limited information provided by you. Click on this link (DoctorOnCall) for a private consultation with our doctors.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms and other health problems you might be facing. Pain at wrist and palm can be due to health problems affecting many structures including joints, tendons, ligaments, muscles, nerves or bone. From your complaints, we believe that your condition may have multifactorial causes such as:

  • Trauma
  • DeQuervain’s disease
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Carpal Tunnel syndrome
  • Hypertrophic osteoartropathy

To reduce the pain, you may take over the counter painkiller. Giving your joint some rest and elevate or put ice around the area if you find that the affected area is swollen. Nevertheless, these measures are temporary. In order to identify the problem, examinations as well as xrays may be required. If your problem persist, you may need to be referred to a specialist. However, we need more information to decide if you need to meet a specialist or otherwise.

In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor. You may also click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors online.
