Nearly two months ago I injured my wrist thanks to going overboard on one of those 'grip strengthener' things. You know, the things with the handles that you squeeze together. I was going far too quickly and at the end my wrist was very sore.
Over the next couple of weeks the pain got pretty bad. I couldn't bend my wrist much at all, and I'd wake up during the night because of it.
Anyway, it's nearly 2 months later and whilst the pain has all but gone - I can move and bend it without trouble, can lift weights, etc - it's still not 100%.
The problem is when I do push-ups my wrist begins to hurt, and I have to stop. The other wrist is fine. I can do them no problems if I support myself with my fists, it's when the wrist is bent at that 90-degree angle it starts to hurt.
Common sense says to just do them that way then, but I'm planning on joining the Army, and you have to do them the old-fashioned way.
I would go to a doctor, but I'm on holiday (backpacking Australia) and I can't afford it. 'Who needs holiday insurance' eh.
Thanks for your time.
