Hi. Friend has weird habits like snapping fingers for no reason, wearing a neck brace but no injury also said he heard voices in mind before. Ideas?

Not definite, but...: Snapping fingers can be a nervous habit, and normal. Wearing an unneeded neck brace seems odd, possibly delusional. Truly hearing voices is an auditory hallucination. In fact this CAN be a normal part of grief or separation, such as "hearing" your dead grandmother. Unfamiliar voices making assertions is common in psychotic disorders- depression and schizophrenia. It's possible he needs help. ...Read more

Finger Numbness: Isolated numbness in the middle finger without any mention of pain may be related to compression of the digital nerve. Even then there is a nerve on both sides of the finger and it is hard to explain unless you are wearing a ring that is too tight. Sometimes this numbness can occur from a disc herniation at c6-7 but not without radiating pain down the arm. ...Read more

Had breasts squeezed quite hard while being intimate with partner. Finger marks have dissappeared but one small bruise remains for month now. Why?

Had breasts squeezed quite hard while being intimate with partner. Finger marks have dissappeared but one small bruise remains for month now. Why?

Bruising takes time: It's normal for a bruise to last that long. It doesn't mean there is anything wrong with your body or that anything serious is going on. I would continue to monitor the area for another month, if it resolves then you have nothing to worry about. If it continues it would be good for a doctor to visualize the area. ...Read more

Bleeding disorder?: Did you doctor also check your platelet count, and run tests for presence or absence of various clotting factors? Unexplained bruises that occur easily or for no apparent reason may indicate a bleeding disorder, especially if the bruising is accompanied by frequent nosebleeds or bleeding gums. You need a more thorough workup, possibly by a hematologist. ...Read more

I am having shoulder pain and nerve pain from last 2-3 weeks& recently I find that one of the portion of my finger is blue. What might be the reason?

Circulation problem?: Get checked ASAP if your finger is turning blue, like today. If it comes and goes, get checked this week. Hard to say what is going on, but if you smoke or drink alcohol or use caffeine, stop! If you have begun any new supplements or over-the-counter meds, stop those too. Good luck! ...Read more

I am 32 y/o Black, very fair-skinned female and I often get bruises on mylegs for no reason. They last for weeks. Is there anyway to get rid of them?

Cause?: You are taking the wrong approach. I am not worried about the brusing but the cause. You want to know why this is happening and not worry about getting rid of them. You need to see your PCP and consider to see a hematologist. IN the meantime how much aspirin or advil (ibuprofen) are you taking.? The cause not the bruise are the most important.
Best wishes. ...Read more
