Finger joint out of place

Common Questions and Answers about Finger joint out of place


Avatar m tn About 2 years later, in the year of 09, i went to uva and had the finger rebroken and held in place with a pin. The docter had to do some special work under the joint to keep it in a stable bent position, till this day i don't know why. After surgery, my finger stayed in a cast for 1 month. Upon taking it out of the cast, the finger was VERY stiff; both joints wouldn't move. So i was referred to a local therapist for sometime, though my therapy was cut short for about 11 months.
Avatar n tn My doctor gave me PENNSAID to rub on, it helped a lot! It's an anti inflammatory that absorbs into the joint, but of course as it is topical it doesn't hurt your stomach as much as oral drugs. You must protect your hands and joints and wrists. Research proper typing techniques, how your desk should be set up and so on. Take lots of breaks. Using your hands does take its toll. I was a teacher of the deaf and had to stop....
760862 tn?1243100904 Has anyone ever had their shoulder feel like it's coming out of joint? My right collar bone is plated and my right shoulder blade is broken, and it is my right shoulder that feels like it is coming out of the joint. Feels like there is a ring all the way around my arm just about where your arm pit is, and it just hurts and i swear I can hear a click. I believe that they would have known if my shoulder was broke.
Avatar n tn At the very end, he knew I was done when big bumps appeared in my toe and finger joints and after a week or so disappeared - the toxins tend to hide there and they are the last to get purified out of the system. So, perhaps that would help your edema and joint pain as well as all the above. Does exercise help? Try a masseuse, then Yoga and then physical therapy. Can Diet (natural supplements) help? See above - I find that Dr.
Avatar f tn How far back in the archives are you talkin? Do you mean pain(more recent) or bruising--I've never really had an injection site reaction afterwards such as redness or swelling. Just bruising about 50%?? On the injection pain... No- No luck on figuring anything out. I made sure to let my alcohol swab thingie dry completely and then tried to jab with right hand on left side and had pain. I did everything right (needle bevel up etc.) so it must've been the angle.
Avatar n tn i hav to manipulate it to straighten it and it feels like it pops back into place. the joint from this finger in the palm of my hand is sore, swollen and feels ard. i have had bloods taken for all none arthritic, systemic, thyroid etc conditions with no abnormalities please advise.

Had mono.. as a teenager twice.. my doc is lost... he knows I have some type of connective tissue disease. I'm tired of not knowing what is wrong w/ me.. please someone help this has been going on dice I was 18 and progressively getting worse.!!
Avatar n tn I noticed the joint above the knuckle appeared to be out of place. My neighbour stuck it back in. I stared to get pins ' needles in that finger and into the hand. I ended up at the ER. They took xrays and the doctor said I may have a small fracture. He couldn't see anything obvious but said something about lucency? on the xray. The area in question he mentioned with regards to the xray is the joint above the knuckle and the inside area of that joint facing the middldle finger..
Avatar f tn After, the shoulder, it moved up into my neck, now its the worst pain, it feels like I need to stretch it out constantly, which makes it pop and grind. Now all of this is moving into the left side of my body and I want it stopped before it hits all of my joints like the Right side. Please help! I need somewhere to start researching myself since my doctors keep brushing it off. I'm only 20 years old.
Avatar f tn X-rays shows partial fracture/chip at the proximal end of the intermediate phalange. The joint also seems to be slightly out of place. Movement is extremly limited and i fear there will be issues in the future. Does anybody ever do surgery for this type of injury?
Avatar n tn It has been 4 weeks straight and still has he to stop. I also recently noticed increased joint popping. Is this a sign of muscle wasting? I'm still able to run up my stairs and use both hands so Im not sure if it's just the start to a bigger problem or what. Let me know if I should be concerned or not.
Avatar n tn My shoulders, shoulder blades, upper back, and neck joints constantly grind and slip out of place. I can crack them back, but they will slip again 5 seconds later. I have an undeniable compulsion 24/7 to twist and stretch and wiggle myself back into alignment. I got worse after seeing the chiropractors. I think, since I'm so hypermobile and have such lax joints, that made the joint even LESS stable. It's like my ligaments/tendons are too loose to hold my joints together.
Avatar n tn Per breaking my right pinky finger last Saturday. Here is my experience, .. and yet "too be" wisdom! (haha) Upon falling while walking a neighbors dog, I took an unexpected tumble for which I went from left arm to right arm, sending my hand sailing. When I got up, the pinky finger was bent in towards the other finger next to it. I soaked my hand in cold water and ice, to reduce the swelling,.. and then "Buddy wrapped" my two fingers until I got to the urgent care office.
Avatar n tn The thing is, you may be reading this and feeling a bit skeptical, but I am being dead serious, I am living proof. If your diet consists of any of those foods I mentioned above, try out the candida diet for AT LEAST 5 months and see how you feel. You may have never felt what I feel in your entire life. If you have any acne or just feel bad in general, it is imperative that you change your diet. Anybody that says diet does nothing for acne is just being plain ignorant. This included doctors too.
Avatar m tn Another way to understand what I can't do is to lightly take both of your hands and place the fingertips on the surface of a table in front of you. Now, bend your second joint on your fingers while holding the first joint (the one closest to the fingertips) flat. I have no problem doing this with my right hand, but on my left hand, unless I push down on the first joint of my middle, ring, or pinky fingers, they remain curved. My index finger works OK but is weak.
Avatar f tn and I am desperately trying to figure out why I continue to break out in hives and have joint pain in my elbows, feet, hands and legs. I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip to the ER, it was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative.
454606 tn?1361929280 I now get help with dressing and bathing because the motion of putting on a shirt can make things worse. Can joint pain be caused by a neurological issue? Any idea of where I might go for answers? Any ideas at all would be helpful. I don't know where to post my questions anymore.
476246 tn?1418874514 Not very much, but it is a little uncomfortable. The middle joint of my right middle finger has been hurting for about a week and is slightly swollen. It is getting a little worse every day. It feels a bit hotter to the touch, than the others. (I did NOT hit or twist this finger) Does anyone know what this could be? It kind of sounds like the onset of RA or RA in a mild form to me??? Could that be right? FYI, I'm seeing my doctor about it next week.
Avatar n tn Another option to try to joint pain is fish oil. I get a lot of joint pain even though my levels are supposedly ok. I just live with it. I am grateful that I am so much better than I was at my worst, and try to be positive.
Avatar n tn it is about 1cm long and protrudes from the inner portion of her pinky slightly above the main joint where the finger bents (not the joint by the nail). it is painless and i went online and searched and searched and i'm pretty sure it is a giant-cell tumor, which is supposed to be benign. my question is, do you think she should get it removed or just let it be. the problem is, it seems to be a pretty invasive procedure and my mom would rather just let it be if it is going to be benign.
915277 tn?1252576713 Just diagnosed with gastritis and Barrett esophagus, have arthritis of hands, knees, hips and back and degeneration in back, have that blister lump on index finger that Dr. Says is my joint blowing out and he wants to do surgery, feel like I hit 60 and started falling apart! I love life and want to live a long life. Any advice ?
Avatar m tn At work I sneezed and my back went completely out, along with numbness from my shoulder down the outer side of my arm, and numbness in my pinky finger and arm. I have also been experiencing joints going out of place. (When I was playing my bass guitar my thumb on my left hand went out of socket. I have seen an orthepedist, had mri's and x-rays. Also experiencing severe neck pain and back pain, seems like I always want to stretch my joints but it does not help.
Avatar m tn I have just taken the below pic and I can feel something (a bone? a lump? (what's a lump anyway)) where I am putting my finger, the bone is hard. Is this a place where gyno might start? Note that I am lifting my chest, if I put it down, this area will become right below my breast with no feeling of something, it is also mostly on one side (according to what I am feeling/thinking, I could be wrong). 1) Am I really over-obsessing? 2) If I take any hormonal tests (what can I take?
Avatar f tn In September I woke up early one morning from my sleep with my middle finger on the side of the joint closest to my hail and it was hurting. It was swollen and throbbing and at that time it just looked like a white spot (like when you push down on your skin). The next morning I woke up the swelling and throbbing was gone. It stayed that color for around 6 hours and then started turning pink and then red by afternoon.
Avatar f tn To massage the masseter muscles on each side of your jaw, place your thumb inside your mouth and squeeze the thick muscle in your cheek with your fingers. To massage the jaw muscles inside your mouth, use your index finger to probe and massage these spots. Massaging the muscles does not help every one. Also if the procedure is nor correct, then it can further aggravate the problem. Moist heat or cold packs on the face, vitamin supplements, or biofeedback are useful for some people.
Avatar f tn If I'm too tired, it isn't too painful or I wake up and catch it in time, then I can simply dangle my entire arm over the edge of the couch for a few minutes until it feels better. I know it is working when I get the sensation of chilling icicles flowing to my finger-tips. Its an absolutely delicious sensation. LOL! During the day, the back of the neck and upper shoulders are a little sore too, and the middle back is tired and can't handle more than a few hours of standing in one place.
436713 tn?1408888330 Your diet seems very appropriate and sensible. I would add virgin coconut oil ( specially in place of other cooking oils ) because of its antifungal, antimicrobial, antiviral and antiparasitic properties. Start with 2T daily and gradually go to 4T in week 4. Visit the coconut research center website for details. There's a test for leaky gut syndrome which is not an established medical diagnosis - called PEG (mannitol and lactulose urine test).
Avatar m tn My finger is still extremely swollen at the PIP joint and at the area of the break due to superficial scar tissue and possibly scar tissue near the tendons. Can anyone please advise their experiences and what the best road to take? I'm currently going to a hand therapist once a week and I'm debating on finding another therapist as well. Thank you all, looking forward to your replies.
