Some years my husband suffered from wristpain . It started with a bit of pain once and a while, but slowly but certainly he got it more frequently. In the end it even kept him from sleeping; he felt like his hand was contracting all the time, while in fact it was just resting, totally relaxed.We went to our doctor and he had some suspicions, to to be sure he advised us to go see a specialist. That one did all kind of measurements and then the verdict came: it was carpal tunnel syndrome. This is usually more of a women's thing, but he had it as well. surgery was the solution.
