Finger Injury Causing Wrist Pain?

Recently I was working out a route with several 2 finger pockets (using my middle and ring fingers). After an hour or so on the route I noticed that putting hanging pressure on those two fingers I'd get a minor pain in the middle of my wrist. A week and a half later I can still feel a slight discomfort in that area. I'm going to stay away from holds like that for a bit until it heals but I was wondering if this was common or a cause for concern.

Thanks

I had a similar thing happen when pulling a gaston above my head - got a searing pain in my wrist which didn't prevent me from climbing but didn't go away after several weeks ... tried a number of things to cure it but found that the best was icing it (a lot) and giving it a good (but very gentle) stretch. It's now fine.

I am, however, not a doctor and get most of my medical advice from Dr Google so take this anecdote with a very large grain of salt. Wink

This is the closest thread I can find.

I overdid it quite a bit on some very fun, but very crimpy routes. Finally just did that last route of the day where I should have just stopped.

Pain/tension is in right hand and wrist as follows:
-- Middle two fingers first joint (no biggie, this stiffness is normal. I do have a couple decades old (A2?) sheath damage on the ring finger already, just a bump now)
-- Joint where the palm and wrist come together (not normal) and:
-- the first couple inches of my forearm right in the middle (inboard of where one checks for pulse) (not normal and this where most of the pain is).

I'm resting, icing, and doing stretches of the area. I might be 'checking' the area too much (stretch and move). Will probably skip climbing tomorrrow

Any ideas?
