I soaked both hands and wrists in warm Epsom Salt water for wrist tendinitis pain. Now the single bone that sticks up at the top of each hand on the outside of each wrist seems swollen and now noticeably sticks up even more than normal. The bones and joints are not any more painful than before. Did Epsom Salts cause my swollen bone area? Will it go away on its own? Should I be worried?
Pianist; No I don't think you have much to worry about, Sounds like you use your hands and wrists a lot. but as long as you are not hurting any more than you were. you should be fine and Epson salts should not have done this. But I well say if it continues to do this you should have your wrist looked at by a doctor and find out what is going on. And take the worry out of it. If it does start to hurt from time to time you could always take some of the over the counter Advil, or Ibuprofen which can take some of the swellings out of the joints. And make sure you take it with food just to protect your stomach. best to go into the Pharmacy tell the Pharmacist what your problem is and let him or her recommend something to try. if no results then see a doctor. best of luck. and it would not hurt to continue to soak in Epson salts too. Make sure the water is not too hot.
