    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Wrist pains
    An_244177 posted:
    I've been having slight wrist pains for a few weeks now and haven't thought much of them but lately I have been getting a tingling sensation and pains when I twist my forearm certain ways. I am an overnight stocker as well and it hurts to carry heavy boxes with the arm. It's not enough pain to where I cry but enough pain for me to freeze in the middle of something I'm doing... It's difficult to explain... Please help with answers to this...

    Unfortunately, it is both impossible and against the rules in all WebMD communities to provide any type of diagnosis or medical advice. There are a number of conditions that could be causing your symptoms such as carpal tunnel or a pinched nerve. You need to see your doctor for evaluation and treatment.

    I pray you get the answers and relief you need soon.

    You really need to see your medical provider to start exploring what's going on for you, the sooner the better.

    Let us know what they find out and you'll find a lot of support and insight here for you.
