Wrist is very much better, only a slight pain if bend at certain angle. Same advice: do not carry heavy load, rest, apply the skin rash lotion first, then to apply the anti-inflammation lotion.

these simple ones can do lah. Not so bad that I become invalid leh :lol:

anyway, next time I will straight away go to Western GP for steroids injection to relieve inflammation. The TCM method is too slow for me.

Jen, try not to go for those jabs unless the pain is severe .
( my mum had a lot of those expensive jab on her knee cap, but it don't cure the root of her problem)

Knee cap is a different kind. Worn off cartilage. Those injections only provide temporary relief of up to x number of months.

The other day I was watching a Korean drama, the elder mother was diagnosed to be suffering from worn out knee cap n underwent knee cap replacement surgery, recovery takes up to a month. The DIL was telling her MIL that many of her mum's friends had the operation n now they live a normal life.

Not sure whether such knee cap replacement is available in Sg.

Jen, please go to Specialist if you want injection. I had 1 injection for my De Quervain syndrome a few years ago and some anti-inflammatory medicine and my wrist fully recovered.

I tried massage and accupuncture before and they didn't work (needles on wrist are ok but on palm are very painful because our palms have very sensitive skin for our sensory function).

The Specialist told me that maximum is 3 injections at the same spot in a life time so must inject accurately. If still pain, then must operate. So, please choose your Specialist carefully.

Nowadays I listen to my body. If I feel there is upcoming pain in the wrist, I rest my wrist and I don't do housework until it recovered.

Hope you'll get better. :snuggles:

Have. My MIL had done 2 times knee cap replacement on the same leg. The first one gave her even worse pain after surgery. That specialist was not experienced :mad:

After that she changed the specialist so the 2nd one is ok. :smile:
