First, let’s touch upon what causes wrist pain. Largely speaking, wrist pain can be caused by damage to any part of your wrist – including the joint, muscles, nerves or tendons that run through it – and can cause tingling, weakness, and pain. All of this can spell difficulty performing everyday tasks like gripping things in your hand or making a fist. Wrist pain is often caused by repetitive use injuries. Osteoarthritis in the wrists can also cause painful flare ups.
Short term injuries can also cause finger pain and thumb pain, like a sprain. Like wrist pain, finger pain and thumb pain can also be caused by medical conditions like arthritis. Tendonitis is also common in fingers, which can also result in trigger finger, where swollen tendons make it difficult to move the finger and can result in clicking. There's also nerve damage conditions like shoulder-hand syndrome that result in pain all down the arm but also in the hand and fingers.
