Wrist injury

About 5 weeks ago at a baseball game I made a diving catch. The glove caught the ground and rolled under me as my body slid across the ground. I felt, and others heard a loud pop. I was in a lot of immediate pain, and remained painful that night. The next day it was stiff and a little swollen. Took a few days to regain full mobility. It has mostly healed except for a few things that don't seem to get any better.

It is painful when i grip and twist things. And is the most painful if my hand is in a cocked position (like pushups). If I do pushups I get a cracking in the wrist, and it's painful enough that I have to stop after just a few. Or if I try to lift something in that hand cocked back position. It also hurts when I put my hand down palm first onto the steering wheel when I drive, i feel like a pressure relief after a few bones seem to crack into place.

It occasionally hurts when I open doors (turning the door knob), but doesn't interfere with every day life to much. Just when I do the above mentioned movements.

Not sure what this is as like I said it doesn't hurt with normal movement really. Occassionally at rest I have a dull pain as well.

Re: Wrist injury

the pain is located in my left wrist, on the outside (closest to smallest finger side), right where the wrist joint is.

Re: Wrist injury

It sounds like you could have a TFCC injury. There is good information on the internet about them.

I too have ulnar sided wrist pain and have many similar symptoms to you.
