Why does my wrist hurt?

Carpal tunnel syndrome

There are many reasons as to why your wrist may hurt. Chief amongst this is Carpal tunnel syndrome. It can be caused when the median nerve located on the palm side of your hand becomes trapped and can lead to an aching sensation in your wrist, but also your thumb, index, middle or ring fingers. Such pain can lead to side effects such as swelling or numbness as a result of repetitive movement.


Tendinitis is a pain that can occur in the wrist as a result of an irritation or inflammation of the tendons located within the surrounding area. It can be caused by repetitive action and can lead to aches and tender pain if touched, as well as swelling and/or feelings of tightness.
