So I punched a wall about six days ago it hurt the first two days then the pain went away, but now it hurts to make a fist and my whole arm hurts?

Needs evaluation: It is very common to fracture the bones in the hand when we punch hard objects, e.g., walls, another person's face, etc. Since you are having worsening pain, I would seek medical attention. You would benefit from an examination and imaging studies like an X-ray to determine if there are any fractures. If fractures are present, you may need to see an Orthopedic surgeon for treatment. ...Read more

My wife had an IV in her arm and it was removed 3 days ago and now her arm hurts and the back side of her hand has blue veins. Is this normal?

Not necessarily: An IV that has been out for three days shouldn't hurt or be uncomfortable anymore. The presence of distended or darker veins is concerning for a blood clot. If our wife is still in the hospital she should show it to a nurse or her doctor. If she is home she should call her doctor and have it checked out. ...Read more

Aching pain in R shoulder blade for 3 yrs, now both shoulder blades aching and right arm hurts down to my hand and sometime hurts to take deep breath?

See your doctor: This sort of pain could be due to disc disease in your neck, misalignment of your spine from scoliosis or other sources. When you breath, your chest and shoulder muscles move, which may make it worse. However, pain with breathing can also be from other things like pleurisy (inflammation of the lining of the lung), blood clot, infection or fluid collection. See your doctor as soon as you can. ...Read more

My right arm hurts, feels weak, and numb. The pain is mostly on the shoulder. I've had this for a day now. What can it be?

Sounds like: You may have a pinched nerve in your NECK!
Contact your PCP (Primary Care Provider) as soon as practicable... in the meantime Ibuprofen 600mg after meals and at bedtime with milk may help.

Good Luck
PS You may need an MRI of your C- (neck)Spine

I overstretched the pinky side of my hand. Now the outside of my arm hurts when I turn it over. Sprain, tendinitis, or something worse?

Tedonitis: Most common cause based on your description would be extensor carpi ulnaris tendonitis. Could also be a mild collateral ligament sprain. Use a splint to rest the wrist, ice it, elevate as much as possible and take anti-inflamatories. If not improved in 5-10 days see hand surgeon or pcp. ...Read more

Pinched nerve?: There are many things that can present this way. Part of the differential is a cervical radiculopathy or radiculitis (this is when nerves in your neck become pinched or irritated). If your symptoms persist or worsen (such as weakness), seek medical attention. Commonly (if this is what you do have.), a trial of physical therapy is very successful, but occasionally, surgery may be needed. ...Read more

GO TO ER: One possibility is that a Hematoma could have potentially formed. If this is the case, this needs to be evaluated promptly since a big hematoma could potentially compress a nerve next to it and bring about other complications. Other things to consider in differential are a phlebitis, but based on the history a hematoma seems the most likely. ...Read more
