Bruise post angio: This is not uncommon, but varies. Watch to see it does not grow. If lump appears and grows contact the person who did the angio. You bled a little into tissue there.

Other symptoms?: Hematomas are the most common vascular access site complication, occurring in 5%-25% of patients who undergo groin puncture. The risk of pseudoaneurysms is lower. If the bruise grows or is accompanied by firmness/bulging of the skin in the area, numbness, or pain, you should have it checked out sooner. http://www.aacn.org/wd/Cetests/media/C1253.pdf

Possibly: They are of two types. The leiomyoma occurs in the skin or gut but the common form is the uterine fibroid. Rhabdomyomas are rare tumors of muscles, they occur in childhood and often become malignant assuming this is a uterine fibroid, if it were in the proper anatomic location it could cause vascular compromise, nerve compression, pelvic cramping or even a referred pain pattern.

49 year old with serious nasal congestion, really bad when lying down. Have had this problem for a while?

Seek treatment: Infection can cause congestion as well as bad allergies. There are medicines for both. We have many different medications for severe nasal allergies so see your doctor to know what treatment would be right for you. When you lie down the pressure in the veins of your nasal passages is higher and the congestion is usually worse. That is normal.

Maybe...: We suggest rest, ice, elevation, compression and NSAID of choice. You don't necessarily have to stop, but you may need to back off some. If it worsens, you may have to stop and get it checked out.
