So I asked both on Ravelry and twitter and the following things were shared with me to try to help it. I'm sure I'm not alone with this problem, so I thought it might be a good idea to share them with you.
It was also suggested to do wrist curls with hand weights, 3 sets of 10 reps each, as well as use icy hot. Now, I'm allergic to the stuff (never mind the fact it gives me asthma attacks), so I generally use Sombra instead.
As you can imagine, having wrist problems isn't making knitting any easier. It's been very slow going (and technically it shouldn't be going at all for a while at least), so there's not a hell of a lot to share.
