See your doctor: It sounds like you have some sort of nerve impingement syndrome happening in your hand. This is when nerves get bound up and irritated by scars or inflamed muscles, tendons or ligaments. See your doctor for an exam and evaluation. This type of nerve irritation can become permanent if it is not treated early in the course of the condition. ...Read more

Broken hymen before: Many girls have had their hymens broken spontaneously before they ever got involved sexually with anyone. If he is evidencing such a lack of trust in what you tell him at the beginning of the relationship this doesn't bode well for your future together which is ultimately based on trust in each other. If he doesn't immediately apologize after you educate him "let's call the whole thing off". ...Read more

Lots of things.: Psychologically, are you under a lot of stress? Do you have PTSD or panic? Look at your medications. Lots of them have atypical side effects.

What are the chances of having a hysterecty with endometriosis implant? Right now, it is the size of my fist in rlq.

What are the chances of having a hysterecty with endometriosis implant? Right now, it is the size of my fist in rlq.

Zero: It's almost never the case that a doctor would remove your uterus when you have an ovarian cyst. I'm assuming this is what you mean by an endometriosis implant the size of your fist. The only reason to remove the entire uterus would be if encountered injury or uncontrollable bleeding. In hands of good surgeon, it's nearly always possible to only remove the endometriosis, and leave uterus in. ...Read more

When I was 13 I tried fisting myself and it resulted in my fist having blood and from what I remember, pain. Is my vagina stretched out/damaged forevr?

Probably ok.: The vagina is very elastic and heals well. You may have simply torn some external tissue such as the hymen. If you desire reassurance, have a gynecologist examine you. My gut feeling is you’re fine. ...Read more

When I close my fist, my hand tingles. What does this mean?

When I close my fist, my hand tingles. What does this mean?

Increased pressure: When you make a fist the flexor tendons glide proximally through the carpal tunnel. In some individuals the lumbrical muscles which arise from the profundus tendons pass back into the carpal tunnel causing pressure on the median nerve. This results in tingling and numbness in the median nerve distribution to the thumb, index finger, long finger and half the ring finger. ...Read more

3 months ago I fell hard on my tailbone. Now there is a still swollen area nearly the size of my fist on my buttock. How should I treat? (without doc)

Difficult 2 treat: Without a dr. You need to get a doctor involved, as the size of a fist is huge, and warrants getting further work up, and imaging if need be. Also, a 2nd opinion from an osteopathic doctor would be helpful to determine if it can be treated osteopathically to not need surgery or not. You can't possibly sit or drive comfortably, and need donut pillow to sit on, and decompress your sacrum, and injury. ...Read more

I jammed my finger playing basketball a week ago and I still can't close my fist without it hurting. Should I be worried and get x-rays?

Yes: Yes. Although uncommon, there are a few types of fractures that require orthopedic intervention to avoid long term complications. Also, if there is a fracture, at the very least you would want to immobilize it to aid healing. Keep in mind that x-rays really only show bone injury and you may have a partial (assuming you have full range of motion) tear of a ligament or tendon which take time to heal. ...Read more
