A normally placid horse spun round and tried to kick me. I managed to push myself away enough to avoid broken legs, but I damaged right wrist doing so.

I hurt my wrist during soccer season when I was playing soccer. I fell on my wrist and it popped when I landed on it. Now if I use my hand for an extended period of time my hand starts tingling and I can't grip my pencil. I'm not really sure what I did to it.

I'm a cashier. A 29 oz can of food fell on my wrist, a crush injury to my superficial radial nerve and the tendons. I feel heat, numbness, tingling, sudden stabbing pain and sensitivity to the touch. It's been a year and I still have pain. Recently had an MRI and showed that I have a 0.3mm ganglion cyst. I have always felt as if the blood flow is slowed down at the impacted area. My hand still swells but not as much as before. Physical therapy and cortisone shots made it worst. I have a feeling it might also be a small aneurysm the cause of pain.

My wrist pain started about one month ago while I was doing push-ups. I am not sure if I moved my wrist in the wrong direction, but it hurts only in the position of a push up.

I had my wrist injury two weeks ago July 1, 2011 when we are turning our 350lb patient, I pulled out to another position using my right hand as the source of strength, because I already have a back problem, as soon as I pull it, I felt a strong pain in my wrist.

I injured my wrist in yoga class. I was trying too hard to keep up with other people when I know I'm nowhere near as strong as them.

I was in a car accident where I injured my wrist. I was put in Velcro splint but after 3 weeks still causing major pain when I try to use it to pick up or move any objects -- even to hold a fork in my hand. I'm not sure if it's the wrist or hand that bothers me more -- I am being referred to physical therapy for 4 weeks. I sure hope it helps!
