I work a lot with computer and lately my fingers have been aching and I feel pressure when I make a fist, is this carpal tunnel or arthritis coming on?

Carpal Tunnel: Carpal tunnel is typically manifested by numbness and/or tingling in the thumb, index, long, and half of the ring finger. Although aching may be reported, numbness and pins/needles are more common.

You : You could have a tenosynovitis and not necesarily , a splint might be enough to have your body heal it. You need to be evaluated to consider if that is the diagnosis and the benefits of a lical injection if tenosinovitis or trigger finger is the diagnosis , other diagnosis could be considered like d quervain , but i don t have enough info to be able to extend on the answer. ...Read more

No: There is no disorder in your knuckles. Cracking sound on bending a joint is benign. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

I have a pressure sore on the back of my head  and one on my bottom and tailbone.  The tailbone has 3rd degree sores and is tunneling.  Should i worry?

Yes: It is concerning that you would have these type of wounds. If this is being treated then usually it can heal well with time- but it does take time. I would just want you to make sure you are seeing someone and that there is a management plan in place for addressing the wounds. Deep wounds some time require treatments with hyperbaric chambers, wound vacs or skin grafts. Good luck. ...Read more

My right palm and wrist is very sore. I am unable to grip anything or put pressure on it. I woke up with this problem. Pain extends to fingers.

R/o Carpal Tunnel: 31 year old lady with hand pain and weakness upon waking. Please see your MD for a full exam. Sometimes we sleep with our wrist in an awkward flexed position and you may have pain. However if you are right handed and it is your dominant hand that hurts, you may have an overuse injury or carpal tunnel syndrome. You can use a splint from the drug store to protect it at night but need full exam. ...Read more
