HELP! I am 21 yrs old and I hurt my wrist at work. I work retail and I was carrying clothes (on hangers) over my left hand. I estimate about 20lbs or more. My wrist bent back. My thumb was injured in the process also. This was almost 6 months ago. I have seen 3 doctors & numerous physical therapists and no one knows what is wrong with me. I have had x-rays, an MRI and a nerve test. Everything comes up clear...shows nothing is wrong. The pain has moved up my forearm to my elbow & shoulder now. I can't do simple things like put on jeans, hold a glass of water without a lot of pain, type, etc. My right arm does eveything & now it is starting to bother me too. I am at my wit's end and I don't want to live like this for the rest of my life. I'm too young to suffer like this for the rest of my life. :mad:

  • sound like either carpal tunnel or de quavarians syndrome. get copies of the results for yourself. I was diagnosed with ct but everyone kept telling me that is was normal when in fact in the beginning the tests showed "mild" after about a year a repeat of the test then they told me that it was "severe". Dont allow yourself to suffer the way i did.

  • Well, supposedly the nerve test showed that I do not have carpal tunnel...at all. I know the tests aren't 100% but it is what the doctors go by.
