What wrist rests do people use? The ones I have aren't helping my wrist pain.

First thing you honestly should do, is go see a doctor and see why your wrists are hurting, and see what they recommend.

I know i know i know, someone else saying go see a doctor, but there is so many different reasons a wrist would hurt, there is a chance it may not even be related to sitting in front of a computer...

I had the same issue with my left wrist last year... the best way to solve the issue was simply taking a break for about a week to let my wrist rest (pun)... But yeah, if you can't take a week-long break, consider at least taking intermittent breaks during games/PC sessions. If rest doesn't help, you probably should see a doctor about it.

I bought a cheap HyperX one for like 20 bucks. It feels really smooth and nice, but I just did it because I like to keep my wrists raised above the keyboard for comfort, not for any health or ergonomic reasons.

You might just need some recovery time. But you might consider seeing a doctor as someone else mentioned, especially if downtime is not reasonable.

If the injury is severe enough or permanent there might not be any amount of ergonomics, braces, exercises and whatnot that will fix it. And you could just be exasperating it, and you need a better solution.

If you're not at that point you getting things figured out and finding some real solutions will probably have more benefit.
