What do you suggest if my right arm from between elbow and wrist right on bone hurts really bad and it's swollen a little?

Ulna bone injury: The 2 bones of the forearm are the ulna and radius bones. The ulna bone is more superficial, easier to feel. It is not normal for this bone to hurt unless you injured it somehow. If it is very painful and swollen I would recommend an x-ray and physician evaluation. You can start with primary care physician or urgent care for this examination. ...Read more

"the ulnar nerve (at the elbow) can be irritated in patients w/ medial epicondylitis, ulnar collateral ligament injuries, ulnar nerve entrapment, elbow fractures/ dislocations, or in some cases people have been known to experience a subluxation of the nerve".

Protein and exercise: Body habitus is often genetic, but males often want to increase bulk. Best ways to do this is to insure adequate protein intake, choose exercises specific for desired muscles. Higher weight w fewer reps will add bulk. Best to get a trainer, or work at a gym that has someone to assist. If needed, testosterone could be checked as well.

Elbow pain at funny bone side and wrist pain at small round bone side. Been 1 month. Likely cause? Treatment?

Different causes: The medial elbow pain experienced in the funny elbow could be an ulnar neuropathy, or a medial epicondylitis. This will depend on other symptoms that might be experienced. If nerve problem, then numbness and weakness also present.

The wrist pain could be referred from elbow or a separate problem. "Small round bone" is not an accurate description of pain location so I cant be specific on causes ...Read more

I recently hit my elbow on the outside bone. I have bruising and swelling above the elbow above where the hit was. My hand is now tingling?

I recently hit my elbow on the outside bone. I have bruising and swelling above the elbow above where the hit was. My hand is now tingling?

Ulnar nerve: My guess would be that you are feeling the tingling mostly in your little finger perhaps a bit in your ring finger. The ulnar nerve which supply sensation to this area of the hand passes just inside this "outer" bone (lateral epicondyle) of the elbow. It will very likely resolve over about 1-2 weeks. However, if it doesn't you may require further evaluation. ...Read more

About 6 weeks: It may take about 6-8 weeks but certain limited activities may be permitted under the supervision of your surgeon and therapist may be permitted. However certain bones, namely the scaphoid, are notorious for their unusual blood supply and do not always heal predictably. Therefore close follow up by your physician is essential. ...Read more

Should I see Doc.? Bumped funny bone a week + ago (severe pain unlike what I'd call normal), and is now worse. Elbow to hand is more pain, numb, weak.

Elbow Pain: You are primarily complaining of having pain after hitting your elbow and describing Ulnar nerve compression. As the symptoms have been persistent for more than a week it is likely that U have traumatized this nerve and you can try using NSAIDs as tolerated. If symptoms are persistent he should have an EMG performed to evaluate for severity of ulnar neuropathy.I hope this helps. ...Read more
