My right ring finger has been hurting ever since I woke up and I don't know why.

Use / trauma / mass: Most pain that is sudden results from unrecognized trauma the day before because it may have been while playing a sport or musical instrument or overuse. Ice (20 min.on/20 min.off) will help with pain. Immobilize the finger (buddy tape or splint) with no gripping. Most mild trauma will improve in 72 hours.Motrin or Advil (ibuprofen) may help. Rarely sudden pain may be a tumor. See hand surgeon and x ray soon ...Read more

Doctor said I have pulled a tendon in my finger.  I have woken today and am not able to move my finger at all, is this normal?

Pulled tendon injury: can cause significant swelling which can make it difficult to move the affected joint. Although you didn't mention swelling I'm guessing this is what it is, with the decreased movement during sleep adding to swelling that accompanies injury. If you truly cannot move the finger at all and have no feeling, you should have it re-evaluated right away as there could nerve impingement/damage ...Read more

I had my last gardasil vaccine 2 months ago. No complications. Now i have a lump on my arm that hurts to touch and move my arm. Should i be concerned?

I had my last gardasil vaccine 2 months ago. No complications. Now i have a lump on my arm that hurts to touch and move my arm. Should i be concerned?

Infection?: If the lump is exactly at the site of the vaccine injection, maybe it is a delayed infection or other reaction to the shot. This sort of thing is rare but could happen. If the lump is anywhere else, probably it has nothing to do with the vaccine. See a doctor soon if the area continues to enlarge or becomes more tender; if any redness; or if you have fever. ...Read more
