wrist pain

i have been getting this sharp pain in my wrist, usually during any type of pressing movement. sometimes it is so painful that i cant lift a weight that is normally easy for me. does anyone know if this could be carpal tunnel syndrome? i would appreciate any info before i spend money going to see a “doctor”

no idea about carpal tullen syndrome but I had a similar experience… what I did was “warm up the wrist” by rotating the bastig prior to excercise, generally just moving it thru its full range of motion for a few circles. Worked for me, no longer any wrist pain, also I imagine that after a while my grip got stronger since I don’t have that problem anymore (and don’t need to warm up the wrist anymore and don’t feel pain). So my newbieish advice to you would be to train your grip a bit and warm up sufficiently.
