You: You could try simple measures such as over-the-counter medication, like Ibuprofen or aleve; however, it seems to me that it might be worth your while to seek additional input from your primary care physician. Three weeks is a rather lengthy time to have persistent loss of motion of the elbow.

See below: Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.

Yes at about 90 deg-: Rees, as that is most easily the comfortable position in use by majority of us. One can get to bend ; extend easily from there, as one exercises to get full rom back once advised by your surgeon, after healing is completed. Do what you are advised!

Biceps: Biceps tendinitis, may have symptoms of burning pain at the front of the shoulder, tightness I the biceps muscle (depending upon forearm rotation and elbow position) there are several causes and associated problems but overhead activity usually exacerbates this. If symptoms persist talk to your pcp regarding an evaluation and anti inflammatories or see an orthopedic surgeon.

I have pain in both arms (from below shoulder to right before elbow) for 6 month. I can't straighten my arms, goes max to 135 degrees. Please advise.?

See your MD: Bilateral pain and loss of normal range of motion lasting 6 months indicates this to be a progressive condition affecting the shoulder joints. Detailed history, examination, imaging studies and some blood tests can determine the nature of the pain after which therapeutic decisions can be made.

My mom has 3rd degree burns from her neck down. And has ulcers on her back and elbows. She going on vaca and wants to swim, what suit can she wear?

Don't rely on the: ..Health Tap app or a search engine for an answer to this question. She needs to ask her treating physician. That said, I strongly advise against swimming & wearing a wet bathing suit when there are open wounds. Also I strongly advise patients to avoid sunbathing when there are open wounds (burns especially) b/c of the possible further damage. Sorry! Dr. Anne.

Seek care: The elbow is a complicated part of the body, and infections can spread to the joint, the bones, or the bursa. He needs to be evaluated to see if he needs antibiotics, cultures, or other management. I hope he feels better soon.

Be seen: To determine the depth of the burn and because it goes around your arm and may need further treatment. You also may need a tetanus shot. You will need ongoing wound care. All the best.

Ouch! Poor woman: I feel for your wife and am glad she seems to have a caring husband. It's not likely that her fall will impact the test results - but it is very good to let the Dr (s) know of this recent event. Everything about our body is valuable data to help make accurate decisions. Knowing this ahead might help them prepare to keep her safe too. Also tell of all medications she uses. Best!

My 5 yr old has 2nd degree burn going from his hand to his elbow, when I change the bandage there is greenish brown pus and his hand is ill swollen?

See a Doctor at once: The fact that the second degree burn is draining profusely, especially greenish drainage) and the hand is very swollen is indicative of an infection which has to be treated immediately with antibiotics. Also the burn wound has to be debrided removing all of the dead tissues. You must consult your physician immediately.

TOS?: 21 y female w. past patellofemoral surgery has shoulder pain, limited ROM & arm parasthesias. Thoracic Outlet Syndrome due to brachial plexus impingement seems likely & Osteopsth should be consulted. No injury noted so that peri-shoulder muscle spasm might be etiologic.
