Okay the thing is for the last few weeks I've been experiencing loss of movement in my left wrist and also I've noticed that it looks slightly deformed? When I let my wrist flop forward, creating an upside down, back-to-front L with my hand being the bottom (but the actual top) of the L, and the arm being the side. There’s a bumps that proceeds upwards and then there’s a dip into my skin. When you feel the bump it’s hard as if it’s the bone it self, and then where the dip is, it feels like there’s nothing there. In comparison to my other hand, it feels like something moved out of place? I’m not to sure what’s wrong with it, but at the minute I can’t grasp things nor move it to much with out it hurting.

I looked on a few websites and it says that when you have a deformity in the wrist area you should seek medical help, in case it’s broken. But if it’s broken, then why doesn’t it hurt all the time? Only when I try moving it backwards and forward, or try to grasp something.

I broke my elbow a few years back, but I can’t see how they’re connected. Apart from the fact that it’s the same arm, but breaking an elbow doesn’t, and shouldn’t affect the wrist right?

At being only 17, I find it odd. And it’s greatly annoying me since I can’t pick things up and what not.

I don’t normally worry about pains and that, and I rarely tell people when I am in fact hurt or ill…but I decided to tell my parents, and my Mum passed it off as nothing, saying that if any thing was indeed wrong, it would have swelled, so what can it be?!

So please help, I don’t know what to do!

Thanks for your time! :>
