Hurt my wrist tonight working out.....


was lifting a dumbbell onto the decline bench, heard and felt a loud pop from my right wrist. Couldn't do any other exercises and couldn't even lift the 20 pound curl bar. I'm pretty sure it's not broken b/c it'd hurt a hell of a lot worse than it does now, but I don't know what the pop could've been. I realize this is kind of broad and nobody on here will be able to diagnose anything, but has something similar happened to anyone on here before? It the bone on the outside of my right wrist, and it effing hurts. It was difficult to turn the key in my ignition on the way home, and I had to steer with my left hand cause I couldn't even turn the wheel over with my right. nb4gottawackitwithurlefthandjoke

Were you personally "working out" or were you "spotting" your "workout buddy"?

I was lifting and was trying to bring the 65lb dumbbell (OT weak, I know) up onto my knee before laying back on the decline bench. Didn't even get the dumbbell off the roller when I heard/felt the pop and immediately felt the pain.

thing is, I hurt the same part of the same wrist lifting over a week ago. Nothing compared to this though, I just figured I was lifting too much or doing too many pushups. It's been hurting still this entire week, but gradually getting better. Whatever I did tonight was pretty bad though, so that's why I'm asking what it might be. Again, I doubt anything broke, but I don't know what could pop in your outer wrist. It's almost like I dislocated it for a split second (which I doubt is possible for a wrist)

go see an orthopedic. it could be nothing but a slight sprain, or a symptom of something bigger.

so the only way to find out about a ligament is an MRI, correct?

torn ligament: bc of.... loud pop, which bones dont make, useless feeling of wrist and arm, lesser than expected pain,

just go see a hand specialist/orthopedist, way cheaper than MRI

You know I think I may have had a torn ligament when I was in my early twenties. I heard a pop and my elbow started hurting really badly. It was sore for about a week or so and then it got gradually better.

Problem now is that I can't squeeze my fist really tightly.

I wonder if I had a torn ligament.

it doesn't have to be torn. it sounds similar to TFCC, but it could be a thousand other issues.

could be leukemia. go to a doctor instead of a guy that pretends like he is a DJ on the OT.

I was thinking about going to the infirmary up on campus in the morning, but all they could probably do would be an x-ray (which i'm guessing would be a waste of time), correct?


the orthopedic surgeon I know probably won't even see me unless I get an mri first.

ligaments don't grow back though, so I doubt it would really get better over time. but then again I literally have no idea what I'm talking about


I just don't think I tore a ligament cause it would hurt a hell of a lot worse than it does now, and I doubt I'd be able to do anything if that were the case.

i doubt they would do an MRI. Most likely just an x-ray to rule out a break.

it it's TFCC you most probably you'd get a cortisone shot, and a cast. sucks because it's a long recovery and easy to re-injure.
