My left wrist has been bothering me for a couple weeks now. But it seems to be getting worse. I’m not sure if it’s tendonitis or a some other kind of injury. I suppose it’s entirely possible to only get tendonitis in only one wrist(?) It’s really starting to impact my lifting, and to a leser degree, daily life.
It doesn’t hurt all the time. But it does hurt during and after lifting and after a lot of typing. I am a first-year law student and large amounts of typing are a necessary evil. When lifting, especially benching and dumbell work, it just gives out when using dumbells heavier than 75lbs. I’ve had to drop my weights quite a lot.
Has anybody ever had similar problems? I know I really should see a doctor and plan to the beginning of May. I have finals coming up and really won’t be able to before then. Any suggestions in the meantime. I obviously don’t want to stop lifting. But I don’t want to aggravate it too much.
Perhaps keep doing what I can with lighter weigths and going heavy on the evercises that don’t affect it? Any suggestions are appreciated.
