My dad has chronic wrist pain and he recently got a copper bracelet. I’m not sure if it’s worked but maybe do some research on it or give it a try- I think it was less than $20

Is there tenderness to touch, inflammation, stiffness? Is it more painful at a certain time of day (ie after waking up). Do any other joints have slight pain? If so, may be worth asking your pcp to run a blood test or get an x-ray. Could have the potential to be autoimmune related. I say this because my first symptoms of arthritis started with unexplained ankle pain, then a year later unexplained finger inflammation & pain. PCP originally tried to say I injured myself without knowing somehow & the ankle pain should go away on its own, spoiler it never did. Anyway, good luck figuring it out & managing the pain!

I have wrist pain but the pain is pretty consistent location-wise. I’ve been going to a PT for something else but asked them about my wrist and they’ve had me doing worst strengthening exercises that have helped a lot! Maybe something to try?

Wrist* strengthening ha

I started feeling wrist pain right after shoveling snow in January and has only improved slightly
