Is it possible to dislocate hand bone due to fluid?

Is it possible to dislocate hand bone due to fluid?

Fluid/dislocation: No. It is probably the other way around. If you injure a joint, the joint reacts by producing fluid. A fluid-filled joint might be more vulnerable (as in rheumatoid arthritis) but it is not the fluid that causes the dislocation. You have to tear a lot of supporting ligaments to produce a dislocation.

Will my doctor give me HGH if my hand bone age is below the average standard deviation? (18yrs)

Will my doctor give me HGH if my hand bone age is below the average standard deviation? (18yrs)

Hard to say: If your bone maturity were less than ~14 your own growth hormone level should be studied. If low, or neutral supplementation might be considered to jumpstart your system. If your growth centers are closed or close to closing (bone age 17-18)there would be no point.

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.
