Personally, I hate Ergons. They encourage you to set your hand position and not move or rotate it.
Loosen the death grip on the bar and keep your weight over the bottom bracket. Make sure your brakes aren't too high, though I'd think that would tweak out your wrists moreso than your palms. If you have large hands and skinny grips, you can try fatter, more padded grips like ODI Rogues. And I would think that more backsweep would put more pressure on your outer palms, though from the other posts here it looks like I have that wrong. Maybe try a DMR Wingbar. Nice bar that's wide with lots of backsweep, though it's a little on the heavy side.
