Hard to say: You may have injured your fingers at the same time as the wrist injury, but you and you doctors were distracted by the wrist pain. After 8 months, recurrent pain has to have a complete new evaluation. See your Doctor again. If you are not happy with your Doctor, ask for a referral or go to a hand specialist. ...Read more

In implies some kind of injury or pressure on the nerve and if left alone without treatment can result in permanent impairment.

Actinic purpura: Frequent bruising on hands/arms is called actinic purpura, and it's caused by gradual sun damage to the skin of those areas over the years. There is no reliable treatment, and hormone replacement therapy will have no effect. Your doctor may want to rule out a clotting problem, but that would be very unusual. ...Read more

Bruise: It could be a hematoma - a collection of blood - usually due to trauma. Or it could be an enlarging benign cyst. Neither are serious - more of a nuisance and discomfort. May need to be drained. I agree with the re-evaluation. ...Read more

Is painful tingling and numbness on the top of my hand (in back of my 4th & 5th fingers) “normal progression” for a person who suffered a bruised ulnar nerve years ago?

It could be for sure: You should visit a hand surgeon as you may have chronic irritation of the ulnar nerve in your elbow, cubital tunnel syndrome from compression of the ulnar nerve in your elbow affecting the fingers you mentioned. Ultimately an MRI maybe needed. ...Read more

Hi I have a lump about the size of the Palm of your hand that lodges between my shoulder blade area it can move if manipulated till, painful tender?

See a doctor: That's a pretty good sized lump on your back. I would recommend getting it seen by a doctor - impossible to really say what it is, but it DOES need to be seen to make sure it is not anything serious. Sometimes cysts or lipomas can appear on the back, but can only make that call after a proper exam. ...Read more
