NEED FOR CUSHION!: Most shoes aren't always what is bad, usually it's the crummy insoles they come with! there are many possibe reasons that you may have painful feet, but try cushioning arch supports like spenco polysorb cross-trainers(http://www.Spenco.Com/products/footcare/poly-sorb).

That can cause radiating pain, numbness, and/or weakness into the arm(s) or leg(s). ...Read more

How long would it take from a fall down some stairs that the terry thomas gap in a wrist would get bad enough to have surgery .

How long would it take from a fall down some stairs that the terry thomas gap in a wrist would get bad enough to have surgery .

It can be delayed 4-6 months but is usually repaired within 3 weeks. But I am not an orthopedist. If you have not seen a hand doctor, i recommend you seen one right away. ...Read more

Is it possible to have a fracture above the knee because of hitting it and still being able to walk on it because i'm in a lot of pain?

Possible fracture: It's not clear what hit above your knee and how long ago this occurred. If it has been 1-2 weeks since the injury, then it should be evaluated and x-rays done. If the symptoms persist beyond 3-4 weeks and x-rays are normal, then you may need to be re-evaluated. A non-displaced fracture might be a possibility, but it may not be the cause. A MRI should be considered at that time to check it out. ...Read more
