Being treated for a reoccurring Scapholunate injury. Gap is cleaned up, ligament feels like about 75% better, just trying to get it better and eliminate some pain upon grabbing and twisting. In thumb spica cast from beyond tip of thumb (to prevent damage if end of thumb hit), to high upon forearm to prevent twisting as much as possible. Great cast, comfortable. But boy the muscle spasms that are hitting as the wrist joint stiffens up are fun. Wanted to take a hammer to my wrist at about 3 am. Suggestions to help limit them? Could it be too much use, or not enough use?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be due to overuse. You can use topical pain killer or oral pain killer in severe pain.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
