Sorry in advance if this is the wrong forum!

About four months ago I developed an intense pain in my left wrist. I went a bit easy on it, and soon thereafter I started getting pain in my right wrist. I think it's likely that the injuries resulted from bad ukemi: landing on my hands instead of taking the falls properly. This all happened a couple months after moving up a rank into a level where many more joint lock techniques are trained, and so it was very hard to train effectively, since as soon as anyone even so much as began to apply a wrist lock on me I would feel intense pain. When I try to stretch my wrists, I don't get much range of motion (as much as I should, I think) without experiencing some pain. And forget about doing pushups the normal way!

After trying to "go easy" (i.e., train lightly, inform partners of the problem before we began training, being very conscious of how I fall, etc) on them for a couple of months, they didn't seem to be getting much better. One of my two instructors said that boxers have wrist problems all the time and recommended that I tape my wrists pretty tightly before each training session. In fear that I might permanently damage them (if I haven't alraedy) I decided to take some time off altogether. It's now been a (difficult!) month of not training MA to let my wrists heal, and it's not clear to me that they've gotten any better.

Has anyone else had this problem? Any advice? Any treatments? My situation is made worse since I do not have health insurance (job doesn't provide it, can't afford it) and I really don't have the money to go to a doctor, so any input would be sincerely appreciated.

Thanks!

i suggest just icing them and maybe ace bandage them pretty tight. but you are probobally already doing something of the sort.but you can go to your local hospitals ER and the will treat you right there (well it prob will take a while because of more serious problems other people have) and they will just send you a bill that you can make a payment plan on.i really suggest getting some med insurance wether it be state provided or through some insurance company.a good doctor might be able to fix your problem in just a couple weeks trust me you don't want to risk injuring your wrists or anything for that matter just because you don't have the money. sorry if that came off as being a jerk i didn't mean it that way

Get the wrist checked out ASAP. I had a friend who played fiddle. She slipped over and landed on her wrist. She was in great pain but the idiot of a 'doctor' she went to kept telling her nothing was wrong. Eventually he got so fed up of her that he sent her to a specialist who tapped a load of water off her hand. that was after six weeks.

That was over three years ago and she never played the fiddle again. She's disabled now cos that pr*ck left it so long to refer her.

Get MRI's. You could have a cyst in your wrist. I am now 16 and was only 14 when I was diagnosed with a cyst in one of my wrists. They are usually caused from stress and can be quite painful. My options were to get a cortizone shot, get them drained, surgically removed, or wait it out and let them heal on their own. After almost a year of not stressing my wrists they have only gotten worse..I haven't been skateboarding or lifting or anything of the sort. I think i've developed one in my foot (extreme board sports are rough ) so I may need another treatment option. I highly suggest you get this checked out. Some symptoms are of course pain in the wrist...I occasionally feel stiffness and tension throughout my hand...and the biggest thing ive noticed is bending my hand or wrist..with pressure on them. this is probably the most painful thing.

I wasn't aware of the stress connection. My friend is now registered disabled and has shoulder problems to, as well as strain in her left hand for having to compensate. Pretty stressful, I'd imagine.
