Normal Wrist X Ray Left
Left wrist weakness with no tingling/numbness. Pain/discomfort when wrist is rubbed at base of the thumb and when bent. Emg, X-ray and MRI are normal.
Occupational therapy: It seems that you are already seeing a neurologist and they have ruled out common neurological causes of wrist and hand pain. See an occupational therapist who may be able to help. Diagnosing such conditions can be challenging and sometimes take several months and repeated follow up. In the meanwhile pain management is recommended and various classes of different analgesics may have to be tried. ...Read more
Orthopedic I have a friend who broke her wrist her doctor wants her to get an X-ray every week is that normal?
No: Some fractures particularly to the sacaphoid may not be evident on initial films, and repeat x-rays are performed 2 weeks later to rule out this type of fracture. Weekly x rays are excessive unless the reduction is unstable and they are assessing the need for open reduction with internal fixation. ...Read more

Seek further care: Hand and wrist fractures can be tricky to diagnose and treatment can vary quite a bit, depending on which bone is fractured. Suspicion of a fracture in the hand requires more investigation, including a possible CT or MRI (depending on the suspected injury) and care from a hand surgeon. ...Read more
With wrist ext, there is radial pain from just below base to two in below my wrist. Diagnosis was intersection syndrome. X-rays were normal. Correct?
Which one the following x rays can tell us if all the growth plates in human body are fused?? LEFT WRIST OR LEFT KNEE.
I think not.: Neither. Wrist and knee are general anatomical descriptive terms, not specific, such as radius, femur or tibia. The bones in the sacrum are the last ones to fuse, and it occurs after the growth plates in the bones of the wrist and knee which fuse at approximately the same time. ...Read more

My 12yo son ran full speed into a wall during basketball stopping himself with his left hand/arm. Considerable pain in his forearm. X-ray was negati?
Rest and recheck: At 12 years old, your son still has growth plates. They can break without being noticeable on X-ray. If that is the case, the break is not out of place, so treatment would be just to protect it. But pulled muscles and ligaments also hurt. Wrap his arm with an ace bandage. Let him use it lightly and give him tylenol for the pain. Then give it a week. If it's still sore then, repeat the X-ray ...Read more
Fell on elbow, diagnosis w bursitus after x-ray. No swelling improvement after 3 days w ice/motrin. Some hand numbness and limited fx. Normal?
Elbow bursitis: After trauma may take some time to resolve. In the absence of infection, patience is needed. A gentle compressive sleeve or elvow pad may help comress the tissues and avoid repeat trauma but just as long as the skin does not irritated and the elbow does not get stiff. Ice and nsaids work well. For chronic issues an injection with cortisine or for very refractory cases a sclerosing agent may help. ...Read more
I fell on elbow and was diagnosed with bursitis after an x-ray. There is no swelling and there is improvement after 3 days with motrin/ice. I also have hand numbness and limited functionality. Is it normal?
Could be: A trauma bad enough to cause bursal swelling could also be putting some pressure on the ulnar nerve on the inside of the elbow. This could cause some numbness in the ring and small finger of the hand. Keep up with the Motrin and ice. If numbness does not go away in a few weeks, get it checked out. ...Read more
Are veins visible in a normal x-ray? Injured lower arm while doing heavy labour in my yard a few years ago. Lower arm swelled up very badly and pain was awful. It's very hard to use hand for normal activities. Finally, went to family doctor and she took x-
X-rays can identify bone structure, being useful in the detection of pathology of the skeletal system as well as for detecting some disease processes in soft tissue. Traditional plain x-rays are less useful in the imaging of soft tissues such as the brain or muscle, but sometimes if calcification is present you may be able to see them.
A fracture is usually healed after several week, so is unlikely that a trauma or fracture that happened several years ago is not healed yet. Please go see a specialist that may be able to help you. ...Read more
I fell down from bike and left hand is effected with whole body weight there is sweeling on my hand and pain in hand joint. No fracture in X-ray com.
? Fracture/ligament: Pain in hand can be due to ligament injury or due to fracture of the scaphoid bone ;sometimes this does not show up on x-ray till 10-12 days later but as these fractures may not heal well, most hand surgeons will treat a patient as if they have the fracture by placing them in a cast from the start. If repeat x-rays confirm diagnosis then the cast is kept for 8 weeks. Ligament tears need splinting. ...Read more

Other causes of pain with twisting is arthritis of the distal radioulnar joint, or tendonitis. You should be evaluated by a hand surgeon who can confirm the diagnosis. Further treatment could be a splint or cortisone injection. ...Read more
