Sporadic radiating pain from finger tips to wrists that on both sides of hand? Similar pain along top of feet, r side of the spine and in r groin/hip?

Multiple pain sites: Multiple sites of pain suggests a systemic disorder. Focal neurological problems are just that: focal. One side of the hand, one leg, for example. Causes to consider for multiple pain sites include infections, (like lyme) and inflammatory problems. Pain can arise from disorders of the skin as well, so always look for rash or other changes that would need further medical attention. ...Read more

My son hit my ankle with a toy, 7 hrs later I can't walk on it or touch it and it's radiating pain! Bruised bone maybe? Or possibly a break/fracture?

My son hit my ankle with a toy, 7 hrs later I can't walk on it or touch it and it's radiating pain! Bruised bone maybe? Or possibly a break/fracture?

Ankle trauma: Wow, he really got you! I just cannot imagine you have sustained a break from this mechanism, BUT if you are unable to bear weight on it you should be seen. Put some ice on it, you have probably sustained a "contusion" rather than a fracture. ...Read more

Sciatica: Sounds like you may have a nerve impingement in your lumbar spine region. Anti-inflammatories, stretching your hamstrings and lower back may alleviate your symptoms. Decrease impact activity too. If this doesn't help, or symptoms worsen, see an orthopedist or spine/pain management specialist. You might need an epidural. ...Read more

Lacerated toe. Infected, swollen, red, radiating pain. Now, urge to urinate often and rectal discharge/itching. Coincidence or infection spreading?

Lacerated toe. Infected, swollen, red, radiating pain. Now, urge to urinate often and rectal discharge/itching. Coincidence or infection spreading?

Sounds awful: That sounds like a nasty toe laceration, and if infected it should be looked at by a primary care or urgent care Dr. Who will see if it needs to be drained or consider antibiotics. A spreading infection can lead to fever, chills, spreading redness, fatigue then may lead to diarrhea, but what you're describing without the other symptoms I've mentioned is unlikely to be from a toe infection. ...Read more

Without: Without an xray and examination, it is very difficult to know for sure what you have done to your knee/leg. The most common possibilities include a fracture, ligament sprains or tears, cartilage tears, and a deep contusion/bruise to the bone/joint. You really should be evaluated as soon as possible by an orthopedic surgeon, or perhaps at least in a minor emergency room. In an er, xrays can be taken to evaluate for a broken bone. If it is more of a soft tissue injury, and if the diagnosis remains unclear after a physical exam by the physician, an MRI may be needed for additional information. ...Read more

Protruding bump on the left side of my upper neck that has moved slightly from 2 days ago, hurts, radiating pain through my back, should I worry?

Abscess?: I have a number of questions, including how long it has been there and whether it is getting bigger or more painful. It could be an abscess (red, warm, painful), or it could be an enlarged lymph node, which could itself be infected, or could be an indication of infection elsewhere. A health provider needs to look at it and see if it needs drainage, antibiotics, or other evaluation. ...Read more

Ankle injury a week ago and now hurts to walk and the pain radiates to the knee. Sent?

Time for eval: If you have not had an evaluation with a doctor, then it might be time to do so. For most sprains, we recommend rest, ice, compression and elevation. A lace-up brace can be helpful for mild sprains. Pain to the knee may be due to a change in your gait & increased stress on leg muscles & the knee joint.

Additionally, if the leg pain is not getting better within 6-8 weeks consult your doctor for an opinion from a spine specialist. ...Read more

Pain up arm when putting pressure through my index finger. Throbbing wrists and shoulder, radiating pain to elbow. What could this be?

Elbow tendonitis: This is really a tough question. This could be a tendonitis of the elbow, neck problems, etc. You said throbbing wrists (both)? If you are having both sided arm pains, this could come from your neck. If your legs are also hurting, this could implicate an inflammatory arthritis. There are so many different options. If this has been going on for a while or is very bothersome, see a doctor. ...Read more

I don't see this happen with a paratubal cyst. A laparoscopy would help to sort things out: ovarian cyst versus paratubal cyst versus hydrosalpinx. ...Read more
