Needs Evaluation: Your symptoms of chest pain when you breathe in, along with the chills/fever and pain that's between your shoulders, arms and back are concerning for a possible infection such as a pneumonia that is irritating the diaphragm and a major nerve (the vagus nerve) that run through the areas described.

Burned arm wk ago. At least 2nd degree. Now hurts a lot and is becoming more red and is hot to touch. Can ER do anything I can't do at home?

Yes! Of course!: You don't necessarily need to go to er but at least check in w/your family doc to see if you have an infection at burn site. My concern is that burn should hurt less, become less red, and not be hot to touch after a week. You're describing signs of infection. So go see your family doc for an inperson evaluation asap.

Extremely painful hard upper arm mass, not visible been there for many months no injury hot to touch hurts/hard to move arm. Pain spreading down arm.?

Abscess?: I would urge you to see your family doctor and let him/her examine this painful, hard, upper arm mass. He/she may be able to treat it themselves or should know which specialist to refer you to get it resolved. Do not put this off any longer. Call the office first thing in the morning. Best wishes.

I fell on mon and hit my left elbow on a table. Since then I've had arm pain, my arm feels hot, and it hurts to use it. Should I just rest or get help?

I fell on mon and hit my left elbow on a table. Since then I've had arm pain, my arm feels hot, and it hurts to use it. Should I just rest or get help?

Get it checked: Without being able to examine your arm and assess for swelling, redness, movement, etc. Its hard to say for certain whether there is possibly a fracture or infection/inflammation somewhere or whether this can just be treated with pain medications and rest. It is best to get it checked by an MD. I hope you feel better soon. Read more

I have arm pain that "zings" intermittently. It's lower mid bicep. It hurts worse at night and can be hot to touch. Any ideas?

Arm Pain: Arm pains with 'zings' are usually nerve related. Dependent on the frequency, severity, and duration, as well as any other symptoms - weakness or sensation disturbances, the treatment will vary. You need to see your primary care physician for evaluation. You may need a cervical MRI to evaluate your neck. Read more

See doctor: I appears that you have a infection (likely staph) which needs to be treated by a doctor. If you don't have one, go to the ER before this spreads further. Perhaps you can get some help on your meth addiction as well even though I don't believe these two events are related (unless you have been injecting the material). Read more

My arm right before my wrist veins hurt. Feels hot sometimes and slight swelling. Dr. Says gout but gout meds don't help. Anything else it could be?

Gout unlikely: You are young enough to eliminate gout. That is the area where we consider tendonitis or bone pain.Since the area hurts so I am more inclined to consider tendon as the source. Ask you physician to consider tendonitis. Read more
