Had a bone spur removed & joint fused in my hand a year ago and it still isn't pain free. Think it was a cmc joint. Is this normal to have pain still?
See Hand surgeon: Considering your age, I am surprised that a cmc joint was fused unless you have had significant trauma or have some form of severe arthropathy. For ongoing pain, though, it would be best to see a hand surgeon, repeat x-rays, diagnose the problem and if indicated get some hand therapy to improve functionality of the hand. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a bump the size of a wasabi pea near my carpometacarpal joint of the thumb. I'm 26. 1.5/10 on pain scale. What kind of dr should I see if any?
It certainly could: The si or sacro-iliac joint is the joint line where the two ilea and the sacrum come together to form the ring of the pelvis. If stressed this line of semi-fusion of the two bones can become sore and painful. This can be from an accident, over activity, or other stresses and inflammation.
