It might be due to strain of some muscle or tendon on the wrist. Visit an orthopedic doctor or physiotherapist and get it examined properly.

6 Myths And Facts About Pain

Physiotherapist, Kanchipuram
6 Myths And Facts About Pain

MYTH 1:  Pain is always caused by an underlying tissue damage​

FACT 1: There need not be a tissue damage  for pain to occur. In majority of the cases mere postural deviations,muscle tightness, inadequate joint range and reduced neural mobility,decreased soft tissue(fascia) flexibility can  cause pain.

MYTH 2: Degenerative changes in the joint(as seen in the X-ray and MRI) is the primary cause of pain.

FACT 2: Movement dysfunctions like loss of the intrinsic joint play movements and adverse neural tension cause most of the pain ,rather than degeneration.

MYTH 3: Pain Should not be treated based on radiological (x-ray, MRI) reports.

FACT 3: Pain should be treated  based on patient history and physical assessment. Radiological or laboratory investigations should be used only to rule out any potential red flag(harmful) pathologies.ex; tuberculosis spine, inflammatory arthropathy, fracture, dislocation etc.

MYTH 4:  Treatment should be given exactly in the area of pain.

FACT 4: In most instances the  cause of pain is  present in an area distant to the site of actual pain and hence the treatment should focus on removing the cause of pain rather than alleviating the symptoms in the area of pain.ex: most of the knee pain is caused by a dysfunction in low back (lumbar) and hip (pelvis) regions.

MYTH 5: The painful joint should not be moved and weight should not be transferred through the joint.

FACT 5:. Normal movement within the painless  range is mandatory for the recovery and graded protective loading of the affected structureS is vital for the re- modeling of the collagen in the soft tissues and functional recovery.

MYTH 6: Pain is a disease and hence it should be treated. FACT6: Pain is only a symptom of an underlying disease or a dysfunction and hence when the cause of pain is  treated  pain vanishes by itself.

When you are at work using computer, do not slouch on the keyboard as it will put your spines and limbs in positions that will contribute to increased strain and tension as well as increasing strain on the eyes.

Two years back she was having pain in knees. After sitting she the pain was worst. After seeing a physician we went to a neurologist. He said that certain nerves were pinched after an x ray. She was prescribed pregabalin and some other medicines. After two months she got a fit lasting for a minute only. We stopped that medicine and went to another neurologist. He said that there is no problem with nervous system and that knee pain is due to weight. He advised for a CT scan which was normal. However he prescribed Oxetol 300 mg and 450 mg for 3 years. After one month she was tired with the medicine and stopped. Everything was normal for two years. Then again she was having severe pain in leg. We went to another physician and he gave medicines for neuropathic pain of which pregabalin was a medicine. After using for one month she got a fit during night. This time the duration was even shorter. Both times it happened when she awoke in night and fainted. She told a feeling of anxiety that night before sleeping and told her head went numb or cold. We went to physician. He checked history stopped all medicines only giving oxetol 300mg in the morning and 450mg in the evening. Two months passed and she is fine. Very slight pain in knees also. But the doctor says she had to take this medicine for 5 years. Please advice us. We do not know whether she is having epilepsy or it was side effect of the medicines given for neuropathic pain.

I do not think it is becase of side effect. It is because of epilepsy only. And she need to continue the treatment for 5 yrs. Even if she donot have epilepsy this drugs wil not harm her.
