Bruised Swollen Hurt
Kicked side of bed. 5th toe bruised, swollen, hurts. ER doc said not broken but this is pretty bad. Could he have been wrong with X-ray?
Same treatment.: Of course he could be wrong. But quite frankly, I don't know if it would make that much difference in the treatment. The fact that no gross fracture was recognized on the film, would essentially mean that if there is a missed fracture present, it is probably small and not displaced. By this reasoning, the treatment would be the same. Rest, ice, compression (splint) and elevation is the treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I sprained my ankle 3 months ago it is still swollen bruised and hurts my mom wants me to to to a specialist what would they do and what one i'm a kid?
Listen to mom: 3 months is way too long to be playing around with an injury like that. A sprain should be long better, and if you are still even having problems with swelling, you need to see an orthopedist. Your profile says you are 18, so you may be your mother's kid, but in our world you are an adult. Get an appointment with an orthopedist asap - you need further evaluation of that ankle yesterday. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have injured my foot it is bruised, slightly swollen an hurts when I touch the bone up from my ankle. I can walk on it, what would it most likely be?
Hard to Say. But...: It would most likely be damaged to the extent that bruising has occurred. That would indicate that some level of soft tissue injury has happened. There is no way of knowing if a fracture has occurred unless an x-ray is taken. Until more definitive levels of damage can be identified, it would be best to elevate, brace and protect the foot until you see a specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My thumb is swollen and bruised and hurts . Could it just be jamed frind fell on it ! he is about 80 pounds and he bent the thumb backward's
A : A thumb that hyperextends or is forced backward could not only be "jammed" ie have a joint bruise, it could have a ligament injury that needs treatment. An ulnar or radial collateral ligametn injury can be partial requiring immobilization or it may be completely torn often requiring surgery. An exam by a hand surgeon, sometimes leads to an mri, sometimes to splinting or casting and at times surgery. Faliure t-o care for these injuruies can lead to long term issues with the thumb as it is used in grasping. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
