My husband gave me a high five and I felt a bad pain in my wrist so I went to the doctor and it was a ganglion cyst. I have been living with it for years now. Wish it would go.

I had pain in both of my wrists. I thought I had carpal tunnel. I would wear a splint when the pain flared. Not long ago, I noticed that I had a lump on my wrist. My doctor diagnosed with me a ganglion cyst and put me on Mobic.
