Slipped on ice, landed on right elbow. Xrays showed no big break. Its bruised, swellings down. Elbows very sensitive. Hairline or just bruised bone?

Slipped on ice, landed on right elbow. Xrays showed no big break. Its bruised, swellings down. Elbows very sensitive. Hairline or just bruised bone?

Sounds like a bru --: Ised elbow, as the xrays were negative. Protect the elbow, for a 10-14 days and if its only a bruised, it'll get better. If not improving or getting worse, get a another xray as in some cases initial xray may not show a fx, which was present. So protecting it for 2 weeks and re-xraying it would be the way to go.
Good luck. ...Read more

I fell down steps 1m ago landed on my elbow and backside of hip. Huge bruise been hurting ever since. Found lump between back bone and top of hip?

Sounds like a hema--: Toma (collection of blood) from a burst vessel or due to a ruptured muscle, which are commoner than a fracture, ligament/tendon tears, etcc.
Your symptoms should be getting better generally. Hot pack 3 times a day with pain meds would help, as well as pt with strengthening exercises.
I hope you saw your pcp or an orthopod, to ensure you don't have a fx. ...Read more

I recently hit my elbow on the outside bone. I have bruising and swelling above the elbow above where the hit was. My hand is now tingling?

I recently hit my elbow on the outside bone. I have bruising and swelling above the elbow above where the hit was. My hand is now tingling?

Ulnar nerve: My guess would be that you are feeling the tingling mostly in your little finger perhaps a bit in your ring finger. The ulnar nerve which supply sensation to this area of the hand passes just inside this "outer" bone (lateral epicondyle) of the elbow. It will very likely resolve over about 1-2 weeks. However, if it doesn't you may require further evaluation. ...Read more

10 days before the 40th birthday I could not move out of bed. Something was wrong with my back in the upper region toward my neck.....?

10 days before the 40th birthday I could not move out of bed. Something was wrong with my back in the upper region toward my neck.....?

Honest: This is not a case for HealthTap. You need a 1-1 evaluation by a neurologist and/or rheumatologist. The efforts of the available HealthTap MD's have been outstanding as far as they could go In fact, if you are near the Mayo or Lahey clinics, then you should go there for an inter-discipline evaluation. In absolutely no sense of criticism, you have been through what I call "too much:" and need important psychological support to help you work this thru. H. Robert Silverstein, MD, FACC ...Read more

Go see your doc!: It's impossible to tell from the little bit of info you've given, especially w/o examination. Perhaps you just have a swollen lymph node. Or abscess (pus pocket). Or (sebaceous) cyst. Not a common area for ganglion cyst. Maybe (aneurysmal) bone cyst. Bottom line, you need to go see your doc. If money is an issue, check out http://alvinblin. Blogspot.

In a short arm cast that covers three of my fingers for a server bone bruise othro hasn't given answer for how long to expect to wear it thoughts??

In a short arm cast that covers three of my fingers for a server bone bruise othro hasn't given answer for how long to expect to wear it thoughts??

Weeks not Months: A "bone bruise" is actually a collection of blood under the periosteum (fibrous "wrapping" of the bone) and since the circulation is not great it take a longer time to resorb the blood than an ordinary bruise. The fact that a cast was applied suggests that there also may be a tiny fracture (called "avulsion fracture") along with the bruise. 6-8 weeks is the usual number given for complete healing ...Read more

Fell on the knuckle side of my hand the bone above my thumb is sore. Wrist and hand all bruised fingers are swelling bruising gone up my arm 5 days now?

Need evaluation: This could be a wrist fracture that needs treatment. You need to see a doctor and have xrays to rule out a fracture. Additional tests MAY be required. In the meantime, elevate the hand above your heart to help reduce swelling and gently move your hand and wrist to prevent stiffness. Get this evaluated NOW. ...Read more

I have sudden pain top of right breast bone. Pain is constant, also feels tender to touch and worsens when I extend my arm forward should I be concerned?

Be concerned: There may be a pulled nerve in your neck causing a "peripheral neuropathy" that worsens when you extend your arm forward. See a neurologist. An MRI might be ordered to find the nerve that is being pulled or compressed. ...Read more
