I once saw a patient, a young man, who had spent a passionate weekend
with his female partner. During this time, he had stimulated her
repeatedly with the palm of his hand against her genitals with the
wrist in a hyper-extended position. The following morning, he had
what was an acute carpal tunnel syndrome. I treat this conservatively
(pain medicine and anti-inflammatories) and the symptoms resolved
within several days.
I guess that this would be "lover's wrist".
