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
