Start on a flat table top and gradually work your way up to a mirror or other vertical surface. Motrin may help. ...Read more

Can't answer that!: Sorry, I can't answer that. You'll have to ask men with big hands!

I have cold spot about the size of a quarter, on the tops of both my hands and feet. What could causing this?
Arterial disease: The sensation of cold on the hands and feet may signify the development of a condition called raynaud's phenomenon, a small vessel arterial disease characterized by an interruption in the blood flow to fingers and toes (and sometimes nose and ears), due to spasms in the blood vessels. If its not raynaud's, then a more definitive exam is needed. ...Read more

I have wrist pain. When I move my hand up and down some thing is locking and creaking and increase the pain can u tell me what is the problem?
There is not enough information to give you a clear answer. If you have had a recent fall, there are many small bones in the wrist that can be injured, and some of them have tenuous blood supply when injured. If you have had a recent injury I recommend an evaluation including x-rays.
If you are over age 50 there is a good chance this could be early arthritis. There are also other possibilities. ...Read more

Congenital malformations do occur and the affected body part can be disproportionately small or large and can have other malformations in appearance. Diet deficiencies do not cause such a localized and specific attribute. See your doctor to examine your hands and for reassurance. ...Read more
