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!

My 18 year old daughter plays softball and she hits 5 days a week. Her wrist started bothering her, so we took her to the doctor, who looked at her wrist, and asked her to get an X-ray. After the X-ray results, the doctor said there was nothing wrong with it but to put it in a wrist brace for two weeks. Two weeks have gone by and the pain is the same.

I had a bike accident. My right hand was fully scratched. The moment of the accident and after the accident I felt pain less. That night I had a bad pain and could not sleep the whole night. I think now I have fractured my wrist.

I'm not sure how I injured my wrist but it has been very soar for the last month or so. I can touch a specific point on the inside of my left wrist and it hurts like crazy. Also sometimes when I move my thumb and next two fingers it increases my pain. I think I will go get a cortisone shot Monday. I'm a little scared after the other entry which said cortisone made it worse. Wish me luck!

My son was playing basketball; used his hand to support a fall and now is having problems in his wrist area. He has seen a doctor; x-ray showed no injury; only a slight sprain. He is able to grasp items but since he also plays baseball he has noticed that throwing a baseball and when batting there is some pain.
