Chronic Wrist Pain
Im a 22 year old Male, spend most of my free time on the computer, since I was about 18. I played alot of console games with a controller, before i got addicted to the pc, like 5+.
Both of my wrists chronically hurt, at the top of my wrists, along the right side in line with my pointer and middle finger. Typically they used to only hurt when I would do pushups and bend them at a 90 degree angle and put weight on them. Now they chronically hurt for a few weeks at a time, then stop for a few months, and alternate or both hurt at the same time.
A friend of mine told me that they may be a ganglion cyst, so I treied the book method and it kinda worked a few times. (by that i mean the pain slowly went away after a day.)
There is a bump on top of both of my wrists, that do feel kind of like cysts, sometimes rock hard, sometimes softer, tho these bumps only show up when i bend my wrists forward. When i keep my wrists straight they are not visible and feel like pebbles on top of my nerves.
I've kind of dismissed Carpal Tunnel because of my age and the location of the pain, as well i did not have the other symptoms till now. This time my wrist really hurts when i type, typing thins is painful just using my fingers, mainly pointer.
So does anyone have a similar pain, problem? Could this potentially be Carpal tunnel?
