Hi there,

some of you know my story of more than 2 years of symptoms, 18 month of twitching (quite focal in the left foot) and double sided ulnar nerve syndrom...

Now I realized that on both sides of my inner wrists there are those dents, getting deeper and sometime hurt. The neuros to whom I presented this, just don't know an answer...

Any idea? It is both sides to the same extend...

An MRI of left wrist showed nothing, but a tendon ganglioncyst. In the report it is said that this ganglion has "no effect". There would be no decline of the surrounding muscle or other "erosive" changes visible..

A neuromuscular specialist told me..."There is nothing like tendons and connective tissue...not my business."

My left wirst is now somehow restricted and my hand is not working so propperly...

My wrists are worse. I think we shared photos months ago. Search "wrist atrophy" and see what my neuro said - "there is no muscle there" it is all tendons, so impossible to have atrophy. I know this doesn't answer questions, but please know I have a similar problem. My forearms also seem a little swollen since bfs started 16 months ago for me.

You mention the dent is on both sides to the same extent? IF this was atrophy, I don't think atrophy happens on two hands at the same time, never heard of that. I think you are ok.

I think we are okay, too. But it sure is odd the changes our bodies have undergone in a short period of time. There is some kind of likely benign mechanism behind all of this - mind bending.

Yes, leflea I am told, too that there are just tendons..but anyway. I am wearing a wrist band again on the left side. Because I have pain there...And my left forearm got smaller since that all started. If I would not have the pain and restrictions from time to time, I would'nt care that much I think.

It is a Little hard to determine what exactly is going on in the Picture. For me, if I make a fist and look at the inside of my wrist, there is a clear big dent going on. On both sides. That Looks like this dent in the Picture, but I can't really tell because of the Close up.
