Could be a number of things. I would first of all rest it, ice it and put a support bandage on it. If the pain lasts more than a few days, go see a doctor. Don't even think of hitting the bag again while you've still got pain in your wrist.

If it does heal up in a couple of days, then one problem could be poor alignment of the wirst when you punch. Make sure the fist is in alignment with your forearm and that you hit with your first two knuckles, again, this is to create proper wrist alignment.

Well, I like farmer's walks, just grab a heavy dumbell in each hand and walk around for 30-45 seconds with them. If you don't have access to heavy weights(light ones won't do!) then I used to do knuckle push ups, which help because they use the same alignment as a punch. You simply to push-ups on the two first knuckles, making sure that your forearm and wrist remain straight and perpendicular to the floor throughout the movement. It is best to do these on a carpet or wooden floor, since it can be quite painful on your knuckles at first.

Can I just ask, are you or have you ever received and coaching regarding how to punch? Punching is an art form that is harder than the average person may think.

Jeez!! That could take some time. My advice is to go to a local boxing gym. One month and you will have the basics of how to punch.

What type of punches are you doing? Why? Fitness? Increasing speed of your punches? Need some more info first!

Punching is one of the most basic martial moves. As such, most people assume they can automatically do it quite well. The most common punch in boxing is the jab. Done properly, it can be one of the most effective weapons a person can have, regardless of their training requirements. Full extension of the arm is imperative, along with proper roatation of the leg, hip, trunk and shoulder. The fist should finish with the backhand facing up, the clench fingers facing down.

Once more, if you are hurting yourself when you are punching, I would strongly recommend seeking out a diligent boxing/kickboxing/Muay Thai coach to help you improve your technique. Even a good Karate or Tae Kwon Do instructor may be able to help.
