lately ive been experiencing really bad wrist pain and i think it might have to do with my grip. would you recommend me switching to semi-western?

Before jumping to conclusions, i think its good to explore OTHER reasons of wrist pain.

1) Any injury lately? (even a bruise can make tennis hurt)
2) Where is the pain, specifically? (nearer to the elbow, or almost in the hand itself)
3) Any stroke in particular that causes this wrist pain? (eg, running forehand, low forehand)
4) What's your grip size? (wrong gripsizes can mean that you are straining while gripping your racquet and also cause wrist pain)

Answer these questions and maybe people will be able to provide better advice.

Get better soon, dude.
