I hit my hand. Extreme pain and swelling.I can move fingers and thumb.Swelling went down a little. Mostly between thumb & index finger. On top of hand?
Xray time: With the amount of pain and swelling you describe, it sounds to me like you need an xray. Some of your carpal and metacarpal bones, if broken, need to be addressed sooner rather than later to make sure they heal properly. So, you can ice and elevate it now, but i would have it checked out pretty soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tremor: It could be benign (essential) tremor. A key distinguishing feature for your doctor will be if it occurs at rest or with activity. Pay attention also to what makes it better or worse. If alcohol (assuming you drink) makes better, it may be an important feature. Does it get worse after exercise? See your md with all the info you can on this. ...Read more
Down on hands and knees installing flooring. Left hand/ wrist are swollen, pinky finger and palm numb, hand weak, can't open hand completely.
Compression of nerve: which will hopefully be temporary. The usual position for a person installing flooring is to support your weight on your extended wrists. This compresses/stretches the nerves as they travel in your wrist to your hand. What you describe is serious, though. But if you stop injuring it, it should improve in a few hours...up to a day or so. Splint it. If it persists longer than 12-24 hours, go to ER ...Read more

Numbness/light pain in my left pinky and ring fingers, and side of hand. Maybe spreading elsewhere in hand. Fear of motor neuron disease.
Don't think so: Hi. What you're describing would be a sensory neuropathy, and given the distribution (ulnar nerve), I suspect it's a physical problem ,not metabolic. Motor neuron disease (aka ALS) only affects nerves to muscles, and leaves sensory nerves alone. I'm not a neurologist, but I feel safe in assuring you this is not motor neuron disease. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I hit the back of my hand yesterday and immediately had numbness, today same thing. It's right between my first and middle finger. What could this be?
Hi, I hit my elbow yesterday, and my hand has been numb since, but now the numbness is going up my arm. And every time I move it, it hurts really bad.
Local measures first: You hit your ulnar nerve. Pain medicine such as Advil (ibuprofen) will help. Warm compresses may help as well. How long it takes for the pain and numbness to go away depends on how hard you hit it. If the symptoms start to subside within the next couple of days, then just be patient If it gradually gets worse, you will need to call your physician or a physiatrist. Fortunately, that is a less likely scen ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hit pinky on door frame. About 10 days later it is still achy with sharper pains w/ movements. Swollen on middle joint, numbness. Dr says not fx??
X-ray: Without seeing the finger I would not want to contradict your doctor's opinion. However, the only reliable way to tell if it is fractured or not is to get an X-ray. Asking for an x-ray if it is still causing you pain after 10 days of rest is not unreasonable. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hi, I have a random, tingling, and numbness to my right index finger at random times of the day. I haven't hit my arm or jammed my finger or any sorts?
More information: Many possibilities, more information is needed. If one taps on your median nerve in the wrist does your finger tingle. If one puts pressure on the proper digital nerve in the palm or finger can you reproduce the symptoms. If the problem was in a nerve root (C6) you would also get shooting pains to from the neck down to the finger. Time will tell. It will either or worse. ...Read more

Your : Your "funny bone" is your ulnar nerve at the elbow located in an area knoiwn as the cubital tunnel. The cubital tunnel is a tight band of tissue that holds the ulnar nerve in place and prevents it from sliding around when you move the elbow. The ulnar nerve contains nerve fibers that give snesation to the little and ring fingers and the small muscles of the hand and several forearm and forearm based finger muscles the extent of the bruise determines the time frame for this injury. Prior issues wit the nerve, genreal health, age, diabetes, circulation, smoking and other things all affect nerve recovery. ...Read more

I just hit my hand on something hard and immediately my thumb at the joint became slightly swollen and bruised. It's not hurting unless I mash on it. It is a little numb at the joint, but not bad. Is this most likely a sprain, fracture, or break?
Hard to say: It is really hard to say. If you had significant mechanism to have caused a fracture, you might want to be seen, examined, and get an X-ray. If it was a minimal "bump" you might give it 24-48 hours if rest, ice, elevation and if it seems to have resolved let it go but if not better be seen. ...Read more
