21w2d pregnant ate cold cooked chicken @ 20w5d & deli turkey was cold on 1st bite but asked to reheat feeling constant braxton hicks. Listeria?
Listeriosis: One can have asymptomatic listerial infection that will affect the fetus. Usda's fsis and the fda tell pregnant women not to eat luncheon or deli meats unless reheated until steaming hot, and to avoid fluid from packages of other foods, utensils, and food preparation sites. This does not mean that you will get it but listeria can cause premature delivery, miscarriage, stillbirths, etc. ...Read more
6/f/3p26.3 duplication (GDD, small stature). Unusually cold, sore, red, swollen hands in cold weather. Not improved upon warming near heater 30mins.
Not enough cases: I found only 2 other cases reported of a duplication of 3p26.3. One is from New Zeland. She sounds like she could use heated mittens in the cold--available at ski shops. Impossible to say whether it is related to the duplication. You could contact the authors of this publication--I'm sure that they would be fascinated to see her. http://www.hindawi.com/journals/crig/2014/295359/ ...Read more

6yr old son gets hot swollen hands, fingers, ears, lips in cold weather or extremely cold food, depending on exposure. What causes "hot swollen skin"?
See below: Increased blood flow to theses "extremity areas" is likely the cause. As long as there is no pain, this is natural (to an extent) so to keep these areas from loosing blood flow (cold can do this) and thus decreasing oxygen to the tissues, where, if without, tissues metabolism slows and if it stops, tissues can die. His response may be slightly exaggerated but, without pain, i would not worry. ...Read more
Diagnose w/ sesamoiditis (clean xray-dec). Springboard diver, & doing PT but pain much worse. Now, ankle/ mid-foot (top) stiffness/discomfort. Why?
Loud painful peroneal subluxation started w/ ROM exercises after ankle surgery. Now snaps stairs & walking. Egg shaped swelling over bone. Treatment?
A subluxing or disl-: locating peroneal tendons need surgical correction. there are many different ways to do this. I always did a fibular osteotomy, cut the tibia partially thru to make a sliding bone fragment that can be slid posterior to make a barrier that prevents the anterior movement of the peroneal tendons. ...Read more
Body COLD to touch goosebumps hands purple. Neck up HOT to touch. Nausea. Blurry vision. Faintness. Took sugar salt water inhaler. 1hr better. WHAT?
Some thoughts...: When there are different temperatures to several parts of the body, along with nausea and faintness, one may be coming down with flu-like symptoms, which can be from the seasonal flu virus or other germs. Hormonal changes and/or blood sugar problems may also cause such symptoms. The question is a bit hard to interpret, but one can see a primary care doctor if symptoms are persistent or bothersome. ...Read more

Fracture of (R) radial head (c) 8 wks. Above elbow still red, inflamed, sore, warm to touch stiff joint. Normal recovery or cause for concern?
Hard to know: The orthopedist/physician that has seen you previously and that has performed physical examination will know better; but infection of the joint or misalignment would need to be considered. Perhaps more likely that this is normal progression of healing (depending on severity of findings you mention). Have it checked out to be sure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
