X-ray?: Have you been evaluated for this yet? Minimum would be a physical exam and probably an x-ray. If it is still hurting this bad six days out, it definitely needs to be seen. Good luck. ...Read more

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 more

Elbow pain: Sounds like he contused his elbow by your description. If he has any problems with range of motion or increasing pain or swelling do not hesitate to have it checked and possibly frayed. Expect by your description that he should be fine in a couple of days. ...Read more

I hit my elbow rather hard on the wall. It put me to tears. But i shook it off and now my elbow hurts to touch. I can extend arm. Should i wait ?

Well! : As long as u have full pom & it is painless u may have olecronon bursitis. This would present as a fluid filled sack @ the tip of the elbow. U should b cn by an orthopedic surgeon 4 eval, xam & x- rays 2 b sure. If this is what u have some may aspirate & inject with steroids. If there's any abrasion or cut over the area there is a chance of infection. Increase in pain swelling & pain report right. ...Read more

Needs evaluation: this requires evaluation in person by a qualified physician. That could be a fracture. Start with a phone call to your pediatrician if they are available immediately so they can direct you to where the best place to go this evening. If not, a trip to the urgent care or emergency room is indicated. ...Read more

I fell on mon and hit my left elbow on a table. Since then I've had arm pain, my arm feels hot, and it hurts to use it. Should I just rest or get help?

Get it checked: Without being able to examine your arm and assess for swelling, redness, movement, etc. its hard to say for certain whether there is possibly a fracture or infection/inflammation somewhere or whether this can just be treated with pain medications and rest. It is best to get it checked by an MD. I hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

Hi I hit my elbow this morning on the corner of a bathroom cabinet I cannot fully move my arm now and am in a lot of pain could it be serious ?

Yes: Not being able to fully move your arm and lots of pain are indications this might indeed be serious. You may possibly have fractured a bone or dislocated your elbow. It sounds reasonable to see a doctor later today for further evaluation. For now you can apply ice, avoid moving it and take medicines like Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for pain. Homeopathic Arnica may also help reduce your pain. ...Read more
