In addition to other problems, my left wrist started to hurt! Now it is getting worse, and inhibiting what I can do. It now hurts when I play guitar or if I work out and have to push with the wrist bent.

It is very painful if I bend back the hand so the wrist is at a right angle and press on the palm of the hand as if doing push ups.

It is also painful when bending the wrist down or curling the palm/wrist as if cupping somrthing and applying pressure to the back of the hand.

My neurologist thikns I am crazy because they can't find anything wrong with my feet based on EMG/NCV testing, so I don't want to see him.

I also read the tinel and phenol tests are not reliable in this case so should I just try conservative treatment of imobilizing the wrist for two weeks?

Thanks so much!
