Be seen again: If there is any history of trauma to the wrist and no initial xray was done that should be done now. It is possible to have a hairline fracture that does not cause any swelling or bruising at the site. Even if it would have the potential to heal on its own it is not likely that a child would be keeping it immobilized on their own. ...Read more

Try and See.: I would love to see if your other heel would show "cysts" also. I'm not sure if the orthotics and/or orthopedic shoes are going to help, but, give them a try and see. "Bruising up" implies damaging of blood vessels and subsequent leaking of blood into the tissue area. The Achilles tendon, like most tendons, does not have a great blood supply. What is causing the bruising? ...Read more

Injured shoulder. No bruise or visible swell(though r. cuff tendons feel larger than norm). Sometimes I have crepitations in upper tricep? What is it?

Think MRI : The swelling and crepitations are worrisome. Depending on how it was injured, a rotator cuff injury is still my thinking. The sooner you see your doctor the sooner you can make a diagnosis and start healing. ...Read more

Hand injury in may diagnosed as a bruise a few months later diagnosed as torn tendon still very painful how long does it take to heal?

If it is a tendon: it may take months to heal, provided you have adequate brace to support it while it does. Tendons are notoriously slow things to heal because of the poor blood supply to them. If you are sure it is not completely torn through and require surgery to tack it back. Keep a close relationship with your Hand Orthopedist while it heals. Good luck and thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
