I have a recurring issue where, for a week or two at a time randomly with anywhere from weeks to months in between, one wrist will exhibit excruciating pain when attempting to bend it up or down past a certain angle. That angle varies as it get worse and better.
For example, normally I am able to do a push-up with my hand in the normal position (as though you were gesturing "STOP" to the ground), but when this pain comes, I cannot do this and instead must use a fist. Ibuprofen taken for anti-inflammatory purposes has no effect
I have never experienced tingling/numbness with respect to this. I saw a doctor about it who also did tests and believes it is not Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. They ran X-Rays but did not see anything.
I know this is a long-shot, but are there any exercises I can do to strengthen my wrist in such a way to prevent this from occurring?
