My Wrist Hurts When Trying To Cut Things And Makes A Crackind Sound When I Rotate It Should I Wear A Bandage
My wrist hurts when trying to cut things and makes a crackind sound when I rotate it. Should I wear a bandage?
Yes and see a doctor: For the time being you can wear, not a bandage, but a splint to support and rest the wrist. But you need to have the wrist checked to make sure there is not a potentially serious ligament issue that can often progress. A good history and exam along with x-rays and maybe MRI will tell a lot. Best of luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Could you tell me why my knee pops when i move a certain direction, and it crackles and squeaks when i move it?
My knee feels like it locks up have to force my knee to pop when i bend it even if i'm laying down I have to crack it or it hurts more
Cartilage problem?: Locking-up is a particularly worrisome symptom in the knee. I would be concerned about a torn cartilage. In the meantime, do not "force" anything, as you can cause more damage. If you lock-up again, i would recommend gently flexing and extending the knee to release any trapped tissues. Plan to see a doctor about this if the symptoms don't respond quickly to ice and anti-inflammatories. ...Read more

When I rotate my shoulder backwards like a windmill, it grinds and pops. Is this a problem? It hurts when I lift things up for a long time, also.
No: It is not a major issue unless it is affecting your lifestyle and functions. There are several possibilities: your ball and socket joint is not a perfect fit and could cause popping and grinding; arthritis of the shoulder or AC joint could cause grinding; tendons can cause some popping; and the soreness would be inflammation that can be associated with the tendons and supporting ligaments. ...Read more

My wrist hurts to put pressure on and when I bend it. Do you think it is a sprain or could one of my carpals be dislocated? What can I do to help it?
RICE: For musculoskeletal sprains & strains, Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation can relieve pain & swelling, prevent re-injury & allow healing to begin. While an X-ray can evaluate for fracture or dislocation, it can not show sprains. Try not to use the joint, elevate above the heart, use an ace wrap to compress, with an ice pack on top of the Ace to protect skin from cold damage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Fell yesterday, hurt wrist, painful can move fingers, but wrist hurts when i turn it or when i try to grip, is it just a sprain, not swollen.
When i woke up this morning my middle fingers would get stuck every time i closed my fist. And when i forced it open it would pop at the joint. What do you think that is, and please don't tell me its arthritis, i play music?
Trigger finger: It's not arthritis. There is swelling and most likely a small nodule on the palm side tendon in your hand. That nodule is getting stuck when it passes under a small pulley in your hand. Though there are risk factors for developing trigger finger such as diabetes, overuse, alcoholism, etc., it also happens without other diseases. Get it checked out. It is easily treatable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

During tennis, i fell down and hurt my knee. It got skightly skinned, and it hurts when i bend it and it pops. Can this be serious?
Why does my wrist crack every time I bend it? It has also been hurting when I write. I play tennis so that might have something to do with it.
Do I have a blood clot in my leg?. It hurts to bend my knee or lean on it and my calf and foot ache. I can hear something crack when I flex it.
Probably not: Generally, clots occur because you have 1) a blood condition that promotes clotting or 2) you've been traveling or had a medical problem and were immobile for a long time. If your leg isn't swollen or red, it's probably not a clot. Leg pain can be due to many things. Clots don't make any noise. But if you're concerned see your doctor, who might order an ultrasound if indicated by your exam. ...Read more
