Hi I have been having trouble with my wrists on both hands for the last couple of years. It started where sometimes they would just really ache. But recently I was doing a job where i had to take out a water softener. I offered to dispose of the unit for the customer so took it to the local rubbish tip where i picked it up off the back of my van and as i throw it over the wall it was as if my right hand wrist just gave way. I went to bed that night with it hurting and when i woke in the morning it was unbearable. I thought I had broken it or something so went to the hospital where a bone specialist tried to move it but it was to pain so i went for an x-ray. X-ray came back but no broken bones. this was about 3 weeks ago now and its still playing up. Itís not as painful but when i use it its painful and if i pick something slightly heavy up and try to move my wrist it i either end up dropping what i am holding or just shouting because the pain is real bad. I just have no power there. I find that if i hold my hand out (palm side down) and then turn my wrist clockwise at a certain point i get a shooting pain and have to stop. same as left hand but when i turn (counter clockwise). Can anyone help me here on what it could be before i see my GP.

Kind regards
