Causes Of Swollen Left Wrist
Hi. My 4yo son has a bite to his left wrist. It is hard and swollen. Shows No pain to the touch. Should I be worried?
Bite: Human bites carry risk of infections because the mouth has anaerobic organism and most bites which puncture the skin should be considered for abx. Rabies vaccine is not needed. Rabies would be needed for a animal to human bite where the animal is unknown and wild and carry risk of rabies. The reason for him doing this is key and needs a child psychiatrist.See 1 more doctor answer
My left wrist hurts has had some pain for months, maybe years when I bend it back or forward. It seems to come and go and is not swollen.?
Previous trauma?: At your young age, worry about prior trauma such as a "wrist sprain". If you have pain with bending side to side and pain behind the thumb then need x-ray evaluation. If no history of trauma then would consider tendinitis if your occupation requires a lot of work with hands. Even remote trauma and show up years later if you had an undiagnosed ligament injury or fracture

My left wrist, forearm and knee are painful and swollen. This has happened off and on for the past 3 or 4 months.
Possible autoimmune: On and off swelling of joints is suggestive of an underlying infectious process or autoimmune process like rheumatoid arthritis. You should see your MD about this preferably when the swelling is occurring. You need a good examination and blood tests at a minimum and possibly some xrays.
Wrist pain: It is possible to get arthritis in the wrist after you've had a fracture there. You should see a doctor to have the swelling evaluated. Until you can see a doc, rest the hand as much as possible, try elevating the hand to reduce the swelling, and use ibuprofen 600 mg every 6 hrs to reduce pain and swelling.

How: How old are you? Do you have any heart conditions, like congestive heart failure? Do you have any kidney problems? Swelling is a very non-specific symptom and the degree of swelling can cause the tingling you describe. There are a variety of illnesses that can cause swelling in the hands and feet. Some bacterial or viral infections can cause a condition called reiter's syndrome that can affect the joints. Other causes of swelling can be an inefficient heart or inadequate elimination of fluids by the kidneys. A couple of particularly severe conditions are post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis and gonorrhea. While it is unlikely to have clots on both sides, upper extremity deep venous thrombosis can happen and can cause clots to travel to the lungs (pulmonary emboli). You should see your primary care physician promptly, particularly if you are having any difficulty breathing or urinating.

My ankles and knees are very swollen and hurt. My left wrist is also sore. My mouth is extremly dry. Should I go to ER?
Swollen joints: If one joint was swollen, I would be more likely to recommend er evaluation to rule out septic arthritis; a bad infection that attacks a joint. In your case, you are having pain in multiple joints all over the body. This is more likely indicating a systemic type of arthritis. I would advise evaluation by either your primary physician or a rheumatologist.See 1 more doctor answer
I have a lot of pain behind my left wrist. Left leg swollen below my knee. Toes and heels numb shooting pains in feet low iron in blood test?
You have a: Few issues here. You need to be careful the swelling below the knee is not in the calf region as a clot is a serious problem. The wrist pain I would see an orthopedist for who can comment on your other issues as well. Not sure if that. Swelling is impinging a nerve causing the foot and toe numbness or if they are unrelated.See 1 more doctor answer
So recently my left wrist has been hurting when I move it forward and side it side. It isn't sowllen and I can move it. I don't know what to do.
Tendonitis: Without a fall or trauma, it is likely a tendonitis, which should improve with anti inflammatories like motrin or advil (ibuprofen) and some ice daily. If you did fall on your wrist of hand, it is possible to break a bone, see an MD. If the rest, ice, compress and elevate (RICE) along with advil (ibuprofen) do not help within a week, I would se a doctor. Make sure you can use advil (ibuprofen) as it can aggravate health condition
