I have pain in my left rist when doing pushups. Can I reverse that?

I have pain in my left rist when doing pushups.  Can I reverse that?

All in the mechanics: It is very likely reversible. Wrist pain when weight bearing can be as simple as muscular imbalance or as serious as a ligament tear or stress fracture. Do not push through pain. If it doesn't improve with ice (10minutes a few times/day) and range of motion exercises, get it checked out by a physician. ...Read more

Cervical radiculopathy: You could have a pinched nerve in the neck which is affecting nerve impulses to the muscle, and subsequent weakness in the affected arm. There are also other reasons that could cause weakness in the arm. Either way you need to be seen by an orthopedic spinal specialist and get a formal work up. ...Read more

I have bad pain when i press on my lower left ab. area. It put me in tears when i accidentally presses it. i also have gastroparesis. Is this related?

Hard to say w/o exam: Left lower quadrant abdominal pain (LLQ AP) has many causes. Diverticulitis (inflammation of a pocket of the colon) is a leading cause. Stercolith ulcers r another possibility. If after a complete exam & labs the cause is not evident, then u may need to see a GI. While gastroparesis is not a common cause of LLQ AP, it can't be ruled out. Neither can spleen or pancreas problems or a stomach ulcer. ...Read more

I have this pain in my right upper thigh but the pain increases badly when i try to walk. I can barly put pressure on it. What should I do?

Don't ignore it: If you've had any recent workouts or trauma it could be a muscular source of pain. Damage to ligaments or tendons could also cause some discomfort that worsens with weight-bearing. Rest, heat or ice, over-the-counter pain control medications, or compression dressings (an ace bandage) are things that could be tried. If the symptoms do not improve in 3 to 5 days x-rays should be considered by your doctor. ...Read more

My lower back is in excruciating pain! if i bend over even a little, i drop at the waist & have to push myself back up by my knees! what could it be?

Pinched Nerve/Muscle: Most times back pain that is sudden onset will resolve. You should use anti-inflammatory meds like ibuprofen, aleve around the clock and even tylenol (acetaminophen) to help. If this does not resolve you should see doctor for a muscle relaxant as well. If it still does not resolve, i would recommend seeing a spine specialist for a full evaluation and testing. You may need to get an MRI to see inside the back. ...Read more

  Antecubital? Hurts when i lift things. When i push on it i feel ache/pain in one spot. Also a slight pain when I extend my arm all the way with palm facing up.

Biceps tendon: this sounds like a biceps tendon injury or biceps tendinitis. Anti-inflammatories can help. Ice massage and or moist heat to the area can also help. Avoid forceful flexion of the elbow or full extension of the elbow. Avoid carrying anything heavy or pulling forcefully with the affected arm. Can take 6 to 12 weeks sometimes to resolve. If no improvement in two weeks, see your doctor for evaluation. ...Read more

Rt lower quad pain: Always brings to mind appendicitis.However this usually hurts regardless of whether you press on it or not, and may be accompanied by fever. On the other hand, if it is EARLY appendicitis or if you have a high pain tolerance, it might not be as severe at first. You could also be having gas pain or severe constipation, which is why it would be good to have a Dr examine you. ...Read more

I have a sharp pain in my shoulder. I can dislocate it and pop it back in. What should I do?

See an orthopedist: If you can "pop" your shoulder in and out at will without any past history of injury then you may be classified as a voluntary dislocator. Generally nonoperative mangement is advised such as therapy. However, if it becomes unbearable/painful or if you had history of injury resulting in shoulder dislocation then surgery may be an option if non-operative means have failed to control your symptoms. ...Read more

I fractured my elbow 8 years ago and recently when i bench press in the gym i get a sharp pain is it connected or something else?

I fractured my elbow 8 years ago and recently when i bench press in the gym i get a sharp pain is it connected or something else?

Yes: Not sure if your weightlifting is new or not for you. If you had surgery you surely may have scar tissue that may give you pain. Of course, a tendonitis is not uncommon for normal previously uninjured elbows. If anti-inflamatories, ice, and rest don't resolve your symptoms, it might be appropriate to see your doctor for an exam and possibly an xray. ...Read more

Why I feel the pain in my shoulder,only when I am doing pushups or pullups,?But it doesnt hurt when my grip is in the chinups position,at all.

Even tho U think it-: -is strange think about it. Push ups stress the posterior capsule of the shoulder. In chin ups U stress the anterior capsule. So if U have any stability it could B the problem. U also could start with wall push-ups 2 strengthen Ur muscles. They may not B as strong as U think. If U also strengthen Ur core it will help. With good strong stabilizers it May solve it. If not C an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more
