    Recently I switched my grip style by spreading out my fingers more. I have been getting wrist pain right where the wrist turns like in alignment with the pinky. Its a sharp pain. I think it started when on mishits when the racquet turns into the wrist. Is this something my wrist will get used to after awhile or should i consider switching grip sizes style etc. I have never experienced this pain before because I used heavier racquets I guess. I have been using light weight racquets recently so maybe this is the problem.

    My advice: Return back to your original grip immediately!
    Your wrist will not get used to the pain you describe. I suppose it will take some time for you to recover your wrist. As soon as the wrist is 100 % OK, investigate with your original grip whether the pain was caused by a lighter racquet or not.
    When trying new grip styles, your wrist gives you feedback whether it is natural or not.
