A foot and ankle specialist can often do this just by exam or with a special type of xray (stress inversion) or an arthrogram (joint study). Mri can differentiate between ligament sprain and tear best. ...Read more

I got a knee to the thigh which caused bruising. A couple of days later I felt some discomfort on the side of my knee. Is this cause of the bruising.
Bruising:knee pain: The knee to your thigh caused a contusion (bruise) but although this is the first damage one sees, other damage can be done to your knee ligaments, which heal very slowly and would be noticed a "couple days later". Blood from the bruise in your thigh can migrate down to your knee (gravity), and the swelling can also cause mild pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I fell straight on my butt roller skating and bruised my tailbone and I has sex a couple days ago and it was painful ?
Coccyx: The coccyx is a cartilage structure at the tip of the sacrum(tailbone) and when that is injured it becomes very uncomfortable and unfortunately the discomfort may last week's to months. If you continue to have very severe pain and tenderness, the tailbone probably should be xrayed,however. Discuss this with your physician as needed. Cold applications for 48 hours and hot applications after help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Missed some of an IV meth shot about 2 days ago and area about 3 inches in diameter is bruised, slightly swollen, and kinda tender, but not in pain. cause for concern? wait it out you think?
Worst is yet to come: I am VERY concerned about you. The area may undergo necrosis, and you'll need to be seen if it does -- you'll know. But if you're injecting meth, this is NOTHING compared with what awaits you. The meth users I've autopsied have clawed their skin off before they died. You've been given "warnings" about other things that aren't true; the warnings about meth really are. You must stop, man. ...Read more
What is wrong with my finger? I fell on my pinky finger and heard a cracking sound. It hurts to touch and move and after a couple of days it started to get swollen, and bruise. But i still have complete mobility in my finger. What is wrong with my finger?
There : There can be a sprain of a ligament, a small avulsion fracture, a fracture of the joint, a fracture in the bone in the long or oblique axis, a partial tendon avulsion, a ligament rupture. Whatmay pass for "complete" mobility may seem to be ok but a discerning exam might reveal that there is in fact limitation of motion caused but the swelling. Intraarticular swelling can impede motion or lead to subtle loss of full extension or flexion. Of course finger swelling following trauma may just be a bad bruise if the pain continues it would be worthwhile getting an x-ray as knowledge of the injury whether it is a factor or not may be a guide to return to activity with or without care. If there is a negative x-ray and pain persists it may be worthwhile to see a hand surgeon. Still be aware that a contusion or bas bruise to the finiger especially if it affect the pip joint or proximal interphalangeal joint ( in the middle of the finger) can had symptoms that linger for....Months after an injury. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
