    For the last couple of months my wrist has been cracking when I rotate it. eg. turning the page of a large book or rubbing in hand cream! It was a little uncomfortable but nothing too bad and I could mostly ignore it.

    However in the last week it is a lot worse. the inside of my wrist is swollen and tender and the cracking is worse, louder and more frequent. In the last couple of days my hand is a little numb and tingling slightly so I am thinking it is possibly tendonitis and/or a bit of carpal tunnel syndrome.

    I'll put off the GP for a while as I am overseas at the moment but are there any supplements or things I can do to help my poor wrist?!

    Any advice appreciated! :)

    It certainly is not normal carpal tunnel syndrome. That presents with initial tingling and numbness in the fingers and doesn't have any wrist symptoms normally.

    Personally I feel you need to consult a doctor to get a proper diagnosis or any suggestions that may be made could make things worse rather than better.

    I agree with Sally - that doesn't sound like a CTS presentation. See a doc as soon as - rather than waiting.
