I received 20mg of Depo medrol ultrasound injection. My question is if my nerve was injected to the median nerve and caused damage would it effect both sides and chest? I've had bulging veins burning pain on fire red when actively using my hands.

I received 20mg of Depo medrol ultrasound injection. My question is if my nerve was injected to the median nerve and caused damage would it effect both sides and chest? I've had bulging veins burning pain on fire red when actively using my hands.

No: No, the median nerve supplies the thumb, index, and middle fingers; so even extreme damage to the median nerve would not directly affect the chest. But is possible you had more of a systemic reaction to the steroids you were given, although there are other potential causes as well. I would discuss the specifics of your case with your doctor. ...Read more

Hi, my son is 8 yo. He has a few things concerning me, but may be nothing. More recently we have noticed a bulging vein on leg on 2 cm wide.

Hard to say: 2cm is quite large for a venous appearing mass. Did you measure it? I would have this area looked at by a physician. We might be able to help with a Prime visit with photos. If he is fair, and this is truly a vein not really 2 cm, it could be a normal superficial vein. Since we don't have more history, hard to connect with your other concerns. Thanks for trusting in Healthtap! ...Read more
