I fell 6 days ago landing on my forearm by my elbow. It bruised significantly. Now it is a burning pain w/ a lump by the bruise. Hand numb at times?
Ulnar nerve: There is a nerve right by the elbow-the ulnar nerve that can be injured. The bruise itself may be a hematoma that can cause pressure or irritation of the nerve. That should get better over time. Numbness going into the 4th and 5th fingers would be indicative of injury/irritation of the ulnar nerve. The natural history is that it should get better over a few weeks. If not, see your doctor. ...Read more

Spontaneous flushing: ..is unusual but not unheard of. It is the result of rapid dilation of blood vessels...the question is why? Blood vessel dilation is controlled by the autonomic nervous system which also regulates heart and respiratory rate; it controls our fight-or flight mechanisms. You should discuss with your doctor and tests for autonomic dysfunction should be considered. I don't think it's allergic. ...Read more

Yes: You are of an age where fractures become more likely with relatively minor injuries. If this was a fall on outstretched hands or even a bad bump, it could well be a fracture. You should put an ice bag or frozen peas on it, tape your arm gently on a flat piece of wood, or even a solid spatula, keep it above your heart, and go get it x-rayed. Take off all your rings first. Good luck to you gal ...Read more

Consider ulnar nerve: There are many possible causes of pain in the forearm and wrist, most of them do not involve nerves. If you mean the side of the forearm on the same side as the little finger, consider ulnar nerve. If you mean the thumb side or palm side, consider median nerve (carpal tunnel). Strain, joint pain, "tennis elbow" are all possible causes. Get an exam if it persists beyond 2 weeks. ...Read more
