my wrist started hurting last Saturday and has got progressively worse with the result I went to the doctor this morning because nothing I was doing was easing the pain.  

She says I have damaged the ligament between the radius and the ulna.  She said to rest it and has given me anti-inflammatory tablets which I know aren't ideal but at this point in time I am taking them because I can't  stand the pain.  I feel a right wimp as I keep whimpering whenever I try to move - heaven knows what I would be like if I was really ill!  

To make matters worse my first reaction was to reach for the comfort food, which needless to say contained wheat - like that is really going to help sort out the inflammation!

I am taking deflect and bromelain -anything else I can do to help this heal - apart from avoiding any more wheat

You've got a real good start there w/ the deflect and bromelain. How many are you taking a day?
I think KK would recommend some Traumeel, as well.
And yes, avoid wheat like the plague, and also high fructose corn syrup. Sugars of any kind will prob aggravate it as well. Pre-BTD my wrists hurt so bad if I just leaned on them a certain way, I would involuntarily 'yell' out. No kidding.  That all disappeared on 100% compliancy. If I get off track and start eating wheat and sugar, it comes back.

Make sure you take enough bromelain, three times a day, on an EMPTY stomach.

I d also take arnica, either extract drops added to your tea and /or a salve containing arnica.

add a bandage to immobilize your wrist and a heating pad a few times a day will sooth the pain.

Quoted from kipperkid
my wrist started hurting last Saturday and has got progressively worse ...

Do you have any idea what caused the pain? For instance, did you fall on your wrists? Do you have any other significant health problems?

Have you been eating compliantly...even before, during and after it started to hurt?

I reckon I've been about 80% compliant before it happened - no wheat  until I went into comfort eating mode.  Non compliant items were mainly dairy and coffee, both of which I am gradually reducing..........  have also had a bit too much sugar so that may not have helped.

Normally pretty healthy.  Have had problems with RSI in wrists and shoulder previously - frozen shoulders, tenosynovitis and carpal tunnel syndrome but  wrists and shoulders have been very good for the last few months.

What's Traumeel?  Is it or anything similar available in the UK do you know?

don't know what caused the problem this time - wasn't aware of any sudden pain/accident etc just a little niggle that kept getting worse.  Doctor was surprised I didn't know when I did it - unless it was something simple like taking the lid off a jar????

Will try arnica - hadn't thought of that.

Up until now I have been taking one deflect a day - so far today I have had 2  - presumably these are best on an empty stomach too?  have also had one bromelain a day first thing in the morning before I eat but today had one mid-afternoon as well - will try to up that to 3.  Also drink pineapple juice.

Please be careful how much pineapple juice you drink. It's very sugary and if sugar is contributing to the problem, of course, then it will only make things worse.
KK will prob be on soon and she can better tell you what Traumeel is, sorry.
Your comment here "just a little niggle that kept getting worse", leads me to believe your 'injury' is either food induced or is being worsened by something your body doesn't want you to eat/drink . .  That's how my wrists are. Just kinda creeps up on me if I don't watch what I eat. Nothing all of a sudden.

italybound-yes...it just creeps up on you, doesn't it.  You think you are doing okay with what you are eating when all of a sudden there it is...danger, danger Will Smith...unwanted lectins attacking.  

kipperkid-one deflect a day and now two.  I take one before each meal...especially since I can't get everything organic.  Coffee does not help your calcium level, at all.  And the added wheat...yep...going to get you right where it hurts.

Debra

P.S.  One Bromelain when you first get up, one mid-afternoon and one before bed.  Sometimes if I am really hurting I double the dose...especially before bed.  

P.S.S.  My oldest daughter gets the sore wrist and goes to the chiro.  She calls it tendonitis...so glad my chiro is a BTD believer also.   Oldest daughter is the most compliant besides me, but has her moments and it finally catches up to her too.

"Traumeel," (made in Germany, by the "Heel" company) or Traumed.

I believe it s topical arnica....

There's a famous easy-classic beautilful piece by Gluck, named "the Dance of the Good Spirits", and I never quite got what this name meant, until the moment I read this thread, and now I understand it fully.

Kipperkid, like our friends say, bromelain works wonders, this is my personal experience too. The increased dosage makes all the difference, on an empty stomach of course.

I also urge you to add to your daily food what Dr. D recommends in ER4YT, namely ginger, thyme, and turmeric (and cloves). Also sweet paprika, if you can't have too much of cayenne pepper.

I have now completed my 9th month in BTD. It took me 4 months to quit coffee and a couple of more weeks to eliminate grains from my daily food, and the difference is incredible. I urge you not to delay and work at your compliance - then you will experience true comfort and inner happiness like never before! I wish you hasty recovery, feel well soon!
