Hand pain..uh oh

I’ve been struggling for a couple of weeks with hand pain –  more specifically my pisiform bone in my right hand. It feels like a dull bruise, hurting mainly when i press around “into” the bone. Of course it’s to do with biking, but i’m not sure how.

I’ve moved to ergo grips the other day and didnt really like them – they didnt help at all either. I’ve also tried bar ends with no luck

In normal circumstances I’d rest it out a week or two to see if there’s any improvements..however with my big ride coming up shortly, I feel there’s no time to rest and try to get out 6 times a week (3 days midweek doing 10km, friday 20km and saturday + sunday 35+km)

Of course if the pain continues i’ll just have to grin and bear it and rest it until then. It’s not too painful as to halt my ride, but pretty uncomfortable- and thats not doing 4 days of ~80km+).

We’ll see what happens and let you know of any updates. There’s no visible swelling or redness, though it hurts when I put my hand in certain positions (i know i know. “dont put your hand in those positions”)
