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".


Best,

Bob
