Topic - Ring finger wrist injury?

GrahamGiles on 30 Jan 2013
Hi, so I was on a hard boulder problem which I hoped would be my first v8, but I felt a sharp ping go through my hands and down my wrist. There wasn't much if any pain, just shock from feeling my wrist ping. It didnt hurt after and it didn't swell at all, unless I wrap the tip of my ring finger over a small ledge and pull with it, then I feel pain in my wrist which amplifies if my pinky is curled up.

After a week off I went for a light climb and a similar thing happened to my other hand... This time there was no pop, just a lot of strain on an awkward 3 finger hold. Again it doesn't bother me in day to day activities, only when I pull on it open handed.

Iv booked an appointment with gp but it's in 2 weeks and he's not a climbing specialist, so I was wondering if anyone has any info or experience on this injury coz I can't seem to find anything on the web regarding it.

Much appreciated
