Do : Do you have any numbness? Tingling? Pins & needles? The area you are describing is the area of sensation supplied by the median nerve--the nerve that is pinched in carpal tunnel syndrome. Have you had a recent injury? Sometimes the nerve can be bruised, such as when the hands are on the steering wheel in a car accident. A severe, sudden onset may imply a more significant problem. You should see your primary care physician or a hand surgeon promptly to have this evaluated. ...Read more

Would my hand go numb, the back of my shoulder be in constant pain? Esp to touch?(if torn) i can not lift stretch, or put behind back. I have spurs.

Would my hand go numb, the back of my shoulder be in constant pain? Esp to touch?(if torn) i can not lift stretch, or put behind back. I have spurs.

Partially correct: A torn rotator cuff or osteophytes/spurs in the shoulder would restrict your motion, lifting ability and cause pain but not numbness in your hand. Numbness in your hand can be a pinched nerve in your neck (from a disc or spur) or in your arm or wrist like carpal tunnel syndrome. See your rehab doctor for a diagnosis and proper treatment to avoid a frozen shoulder, wasted muscles or complete tear. ...Read more

I woke with a stinging/ burning pain in my left inner forearm to wrist/ thumb.  It only hurts if i extend my arm out to the side, or stretch.

Nerves: May be carpal tunnel or cubital tunnel. These are conditions where major nerves in your arm become "compressed" during sleep. A nerve conduction study can be helpful. You can buy a carpal tunnel splint to wear at night at the pharmacy, see if it helps, but do not delay in seeking care. ...Read more

Why does my wrist feel better when pressure applied a certain way? If i turn my hand palm side up nd lay on it or apply pressure the pain goes away. P. S. I usually have a constant pain in my wrist.

Constant : Constant wrist pain can be from nerve compression such as carpal tunnel, arthritis, tendonitis, swelling in the joint, or injury such as sprain or fracture even a remote orold injury. Referred pain from the cervical spine or neck or referred pain such as seen with shoulder or elbow issues or even referred pain from other medical conditions. A tumor or necrotic bone or bone infection can also cause constant apin still the first things i list are the more common ones...So do not assume you ahve something horrible just get it checked out! position can influence pain, as you rotate your wrist you put tension on some tisues, while releiving others. Pressure applied to a pianful area may have the effect of fooling the nerves, kind of overhwhelming the nerve that feels the pain. This is in some ways why a tens unti works or why rubbing a painful area may help too to ease pain. ( as long as it isnt exacerbating the problem) this is a very general answer. You may want to see a health care provider to learn more. Constant. ...Read more

I hit my hand right in between my index and middle finger knuckles. Immediate pain started in my thumb. Now neck pain also. Should I go to Urgent care?

Yes: No idea why this is happening. You didn't state how long its been since your initial injury. Can you move your fingers. Did you hit your hand on the top of the hand or on the palmar surface? Lots of questions - no answers. I suggest you contact your family physician first unless you feel this is an absolute emergency. Good luck ...Read more

If I move my right shoulder a certain way I feel a slight pain below the blade, and if I take deep breathes the pain gets worse. Then it goes away. ?

If I move my right shoulder a certain way I feel a slight pain below the blade, and if I take deep breathes the pain gets worse. Then it goes away. ?

Shoulder pain: I dont know how old you are, if you have had any strain or trauma, if you are experiencing shortness of breath. You may have a garden variety muscle pull or costochondritis, pleuritis or even spontaneous pneumothorax (tall, thin, white, young male). If its inflammation or a muscle pull, rest and Ibuprofen will help it, if its a dropped lung, you need to be seen in ER. You need to be seen by a doc. ...Read more
