Sprained my wrist and I don't know how

Postby greeneyesblue » Mon Sep 14, 2009 8:03 pm

I woke up yesterday morning with a sprained wrist. It hurts to move or put the slightest bit of weight on. Is this a fibro thing? :?

I'm not sure if it's a fibro thing but I've done something similar to my foot and ankle, when I was in the bath yesterday I noticed my ankle was swollen.
My feet and ankles hurt all the time cos of fibro but they don't usually swell. This morning it was very tender to touch and I've got a lovely bruise across the top of my foot right around my ankle, it's still swollen.
Because I'm always in pain with the fibro and I'm unsteady on my feet I didn't realise I had actually twisted it.
Is your wrist swollen, if not the pain could be fibro pain, though usually the pain migrates could be in your shoulder and neck one day, then in your wrists the next.

It doesn't feel like regular fibro pain. Then again, fibro is about predictable as a rabid dog which is being consistently poked in the eye with a stick

I have went to bed ok and woke up with a bad neck and had to go into a collar, i dont think that was fibro, but i do think we are most suseptible to easily brusing or spasms - you really never know what is fibro and what is just a normal incident eh
But i would go and see your Dr about your wrist.

Or are you hypermobile? Hypermobility is a risk factor for getting Fibro and also leaves you prone to inexplicable injuries!

I do sleep walk and I'm also hypermobile. But not in my hands. Only in ankles, knees and hips funnily enough. From the waist up I'm pretty average :dunno:
I got doctors today at 2:40pm. He's gonna love seeing me for the second time in 5 days :tongueout:

Although you may only have extra range in your lower joints, it's likely that collagen throughout your body is affected, so your wrists may be weaker than is normal too - I have this, can't bend my hands beyond the normal range but it takes very little pressure to dislocate the joint.

Well, the doctor said my tendons are inflamed which is probably in part due to fibro and the hypermobility. So I'm in a wrist support until further notice. I've also got some ibuprofen to take along with my pregabalin and contraceptive. Oh goody, more pills :wink:

I frequently get this. If I try to push myself up from sitting with the heel of my hand then my wrist goes, like it's sprained and takes a couple of days to go off.

Oh thank god its not just me!!!! I had the same thing 2 months ago and its still painful. If I turn my wrist a particular way its excruciating. They said it was tendonitis but now its been so long I was referred for an x ray - havent had the results back yet :( I cant carry stuff for fear of dropping it, and as I have to handle heavy medical equipment thats not great!
Had the same thing in shoulder a few months ago and after an xray found I had partially dislocate my shoulder!!! No treatment and it clicked back eventually.

Partial dislocations (or subluxations) are a complication of hypermobility syndrome. Physiotherapy to strengthen the muscles (so they can support the weak ligaments better) can help, as can myofascial release to deal with muscle tension and prevent it pulling joints out of line.
