Have wrist pain. X ray ulnar variance. Doc said it might be kienbock.if it were kienbock, when do i take the mri? Right away?

Keinbocks disease: involves the blood supply of the lunate, a bone in the wrist. MRI is used to diagnose and help stage the early disease. Standard X-rays are also used as the later stages show. Positive ulnar variance refers to the ulna being too long and it can impact the lunate. MRI may at times not differentiate early impaction v keinbocks. Timing depends upon symptoms, response to rx, and history ...Read more

Wrist pain: Without an mri- it sounds like wrist tendonitis with or without compression neuritis. I would consult an orhtopedic surgeon. Sometimes an injection of xylocaine (lidocaine) with a steroid will alleviate the pain. Also i always suggest the use of a pull on, neoprene tubular wrist support worn over a terry tennis wrist towel: it will really help. ...Read more

Dad had bad pain, at and below elbow (wrist, fingers). Neuro diagnosed with ulnar nerve entrapment. No improvement after 1 week. What to do for pain?

Ulnar Nerve: The ulnar nerve is succeptable to trauma at the elbow as it passes around a groove on the medial side called the cubital tunnel. Avoiding excessive elbow flexion and cushioned elbow protector can help. Anti-inflammatory meds or pain meds like Neurontin (gabapentin) may also help. Evaluation by a nerve specialist like a neurosurgeon is warranted if there is progressive numbness in the fingers or hand weakness. ...Read more

Had ulnar nerve transposition surgery. 4/30 /14still numb from elbow to wrist, arm swells, told angry nerve? How long before it gets normal again?

Not ulnar nerve: Sounds like Thoracic Outlet Syndrome may be involved. Ulnar nerve does not affect the forearm - that is C8 nerve root. Thoracic Outlet syndrome can cause your arm to swell, if the blood vessels are involved. See a Neurologist that is well versed in Ulnar neuropathy, Neurogenic and Vascular Thoracic Outlet Syndrome... ...Read more

Right ulnar nerve transposition 9/30/2014. New bruising and swelling at wrist with severe [burning] pain down forearm into D4 & D5. Is this normal?

Right ulnar nerve transposition 9/30/2014. New bruising and swelling at wrist with severe [burning] pain down forearm into D4 & D5. Is this normal?

No: The bruising around the wrist may be the result of blood from the surgical site, slowly tracking down the forearm. If there is new numbness or weakness you should see your surgeon. If the 4,5 burning is new, it might be from the swelling of forearm but does merit follow up the surgeon, if it persists. ...Read more
