Wrist pain- how to treat?
Hello, I am 25 years old. I have persistent wrist pain. It also provides the electrical impulse to the muscle leading to the thumb. Pain is also located on the thumb, index finger and middle finger. I have not gone to see a doctor. Due to this pain, my study is being affected. I can not write or move my hand. What should I do? Do I need to see a doctor? Please suggest something.
