26 y/o f. Did shamroths test to all fingers. Index fingers are only ones where I can't see "window". All other fingers have space when doing test. Scared! True clubbing? Gastro cancer?

26 y/o f. Did shamroths test to all fingers. Index fingers are only ones where I can't see "window". All other fingers have space when doing test. Scared! True clubbing? Gastro cancer?

Don't worry!: Do you have any other symptoms? Like shortness of breath? Shamroth's sign is used to distinguish clubbing only when there are signs and symptoms suggestive of a disease. It's not a test that you do on yourself just to see if you have clubbing. And having the window space is normal. It's not having the space that could be clubbing! So relax. At age 26 it is very unlikely you have GI cancer! ...Read more

ER Dr said a tendon was cut from wrist laceration. I can wiggle all fingers but two are numb with limited ability to move. Well I need surgery?

Possibly.: You should see a hand specialist to be fully evaluated. Depending on your movement problems and location of the lacerations they may be able to reattach some of the tendons to improve your movement. The numbness suggests nerve damage from swelling or possible cutting from the same injury, there is unlikely much that can be done about this beyond getting the wound cleaned out and infection free. ...Read more

Slipped & fell Sat night. Swelling on wrist gone but still dull ache & pain at times. Can now move all fingers. Certain movements are very painful but better than it was. Do I need X-rays? Must I see doc first. Or can I just get a wrist guard?

Slipped & fell Sat night. Swelling on wrist gone but still dull ache & pain at times. Can now move all fingers. Certain movements are very painful but better than it was. Do I need X-rays? Must I see doc first. Or can I just get a wrist guard?

You may have: Just sprained the wrist with your fall or fractured some bones. An X-ray will help differentiate but that requires a prescription from a health care professional. You want to be evaluated regardless to avoid long term problems with the wrist if it is not treated appropriately now. Bite the bullet! Go see an orthopedist now. It will be to your long term benefit. ...Read more

From your history I see cervical disc disease which can also cause similar symptoms. See your physician for the correct diagnosis. Good luck. ...Read more
