Flare after fractured wrist?


Hi everyone. Not been on for ages. My symptoms which had been quite severe, settled after a course of three depo injections. Four weeks ago I sustained a nasty fracture to my wrist which was manipulated under entenox in a A & E. Then a couple of weeks later they decided to manipulate it again as it was setting at an angle but decided not to give me pain relief for some reason. Not good. I am now flaring again but this has happened very quickly this time and I wondered if having the fall/fracture may have been a catalyst for this. Has anyone else experienced anything like it? Gonna have fun getting my wrist (right) moving again, it feels really stiff.

Love to All

Hi Caroline, I've never actually broken a bone, but I'd had fusions of both wrists, 8 fingers & most of my toes. Sometimes they still flare a bit--turn red & ache but it never lasts long for me.

Best of luck to you,


Definitely! Any such trauma or stress can induce a flare up. I have personal experience of it from operations inducing flares. I've noticed it as well with my blood sugar control. I have Type 1 diabetes and stress or trauma definitely affects that. In fact, any autoimmune condition can be affected by it.

Thanks. I thought it probably could. :-(
