Sharp pain is in my proximal phalanges and i can't write without medium/extreme pain. Slight swelling and no brusing. Broken finger perhaps?

Sharp pain is in my proximal phalanges and i can't write without medium/extreme pain. Slight swelling and no brusing. Broken finger perhaps?

Could be!!: Fx finger could be your DX if there is history of an injury to it. Other causes to consider would be tendonitis, sprain of ligaments. Or rarer causes might be a rhumatoid arthritis or other type of arthritises. But common things are common, so i would think of the first 3 possibilities. See your doctor to get treated for the correct diagnosis. ...Read more

My right hand index finger got stuck in door and my proximal phalange has a clean break and has dislocated a bit. Can you please advise.

My right hand index finger got stuck in door and my proximal phalange has a clean break and has dislocated a bit. Can you please advise.

Listen to a doctor: You obviously went to a doctor or an emergency room to get an xray to know about the break and dislocation. Why would you not listen to what they told you? See an orthopedic surgeon for more treatment if you do not like the care that you got from the er>. ...Read more

I feel pain when hyperextend my thumb to crack it- When I move my finger nail down toward my palm and push with my other fingers (in proximal phalange?

Snapping: a joint by hyperextending one joint and flexing the adjacent one voluntarily as described puts a lot of strain on the joint and doing it over and over again will lead to irritation. ...Read more

Intraarticular partial shear fracture of the proximal phalange 2ndtoe ( under 25%). My doctor buddy taped and advised rest. Advise and healing time?

6 wks: As long as the fracture is well aligned, most can be treated with simple buddy taping. Sometimes a stiffer soled shoe can be helpful for protection as well. Most heal sufficiently to resume normal activities by 6 wks. ...Read more

Non displaced transverse fracture involving proximal diaphysis of the fifth proxmial phalanx what is non displaced transverse fracture involving proximal diaphysis of the fifth proxmial phalanx and what will happen woith treatment

There : There are three bones in the little ("pinky") toe (some folks only have two), and they are called phalanges (the pleural of "phalanx"). The one closest to the foot is the proximal phalanx, the one closest to the end of the toe is the distal phalanx, and the one in the middle is called.... Well, it's the middle phalanx. The diaphysis of a long bone (these are all considered "long" bones even though they're not really all that long) is the middle section of the bone. Transverse means sideways, and fracture means break. So to translate med-speak to english (google should think of doing something like this), you have a sideways fracture in the bone closest to the foot in your pinky toe in the middle of the bone. Non-displaced means the pieces are lined-up nicely, and there is no need to "reduce" it (put the pieces back in alignment). So this is really good news for you.... You don't need to have the thing put back in place, and the fracture is in the middle of the bone, so it doesn't cross or involve a joint, which means you're not gonna get arthritis in the toe later on (at least not from this fracture). Bone takes 6-8 weeks to heal, and since the 5th toe has it's own motion during the gait cycle, you really can't tape a 5th toe to a 4th toe. And there is no need to put a cast on for a toe fracture. So just keep your walking to a minimum for the next 2 months or so. Now's not the best time to do your christmas shopping... In case you have that planned for this weekend like i do... And you'll probably be more comfortable in a shoe with a stiff sole, because bending the toe with every step is going to cause that little piggy to go wee-wee-wee all the way home. How'd i do? ...Read more

How can I know or check that my bilateral proximal obstruction is just spasm not real after HSG test i knew this problem?

Repeat it: You can repeat the hysterosalpingogram and or have diagnostic hysteroscopy and laparoscopy with chromopertubation ( dye is introduced through the cervix and visually confirmed laparoscicaly). Other causes of blockage such as adhesions can be determined at surgery. ...Read more

What is best medicine to be taken when it was diagnose with moderate hydronephrosis secondary to proximal ureterolithiases?

Urologist to advise: Most obsttructing stones in proximal ureter are too large to pass spontaneously, especially if >5mm diameter. Tamsulosin can help to dilate ureter to facilitate passage of kidney stones & drink lots of water. Severe pain would indicate need for intervention with jj stent followed by shockwave or ureteroscopic lithotripsy. ...Read more
