I've had pain in wrist for a good few months, at first it was put down to De Quervains syndrome but had x-ray to rule out a break. X-ray results came back saying there is a buckling to the Scaphoid and am waiting on an MRI......what does buckling mean in this context?!
Apparently the Scaphoid is the most commonly fractured bone in the wrist and can be due to shutting a door a bit too hard type of movement, not necessarily a fall. Having said that, I can't remember doing anything like either that may have caused it.....nothing stands out anyway!!
Because of my mild De Quervains, I put the pain (and the thumb clicking and sticking) down to that so didn't get it checked out for a good while, and the pain is progressively getting worse. I take morphine for a different condition so to still get breakthrough pain worries me.
As instructed by my GP I strap it up to keep it relatively still but the pressure can become uncomfortable so I take it off........am I doing further damage to it whilst I await my MRI and treatment that may follow?
For the condition that I take the morphine for, I am currently receiving a hormone treatment called Decapeptyl and have had Zoladex on and off over the years also.......could my bones have been weakened and therefore I don't remember anything in particular happening to my wrist (it's my left wrist and I'm right handed)? I only started taking HRT to protect my bones from these hormone treatments last July, not from the first injection 20 years ago.
Sorry to go on, just a bit worried is all. My GP is really good but the wrist issue is out of her hands 😉 now.
Any advice or ideas would be great, thank you!!
