Your wrist may be aching, but don't assume that the cause is carpal tunnel syndrome. And don't assume that your doctor will necessarily diagnose you properly.

San Francisco Bay area hand surgeon Robert Markison, M.D., a top expert in RSI, discusses several common wrist maladies including de Quervain's disease, ganglion cysts, tendinitis and ulnar tunnel syndrome. He also discusses the anatomy of the wrist, and what doctors should be looking for if a patient presents with wrist pain. PLUS: Why vitamin D helps, how technology hurts, and much more.
