Why is my finger swelling up

Common Questions and Answers about Why is my finger swelling up


Avatar f tn It would hurt to walk on my feet and my socks would cut into my legs. Now the swelling is staying down unless I am on my feet for hours.
666921 tn?1254994218 -- at the base of my neck on right side just above collar bone - there is a hollow!! [don't know the correct name] - if I hold my shoulder back there is a soft swelling in that area it isn't really noticable from just looking in the mirror with shoulder relaxed. It kinda causes a bit of tension around that area? My G.P. said she doesn't know what it is ! very reassuring ! She said wait and see how it is once you have seen the LLMD.
492921 tn?1321293496 Every day since I have had tingling in my feet and sometimes I look at them and there purple. My ankles aren't swelling just my feet. I've been doing epsom salt baths every night in my foot spa with massage. I've also had pain in my fingers when I bend them the joints hurt. I think I'm gonna call my Dr tomorrow. I've been keeping my feet elevated any time I am sitting. I'm so glad that Friday was my last shift at the bar I guess I timed that just right.
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? Sitting for long periods of time could also contribute to the foot swelling. This is why it is important to stand up and stretch from time to time in your work station. Splinter hemorrhages are small areas of bleeding under fingernails or toenails. They take the shape of straight lines and may be caused by damage to the blood vessels. The most common cause of splinter hemorrhages are trauma to the nail. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn A mucous or myxoid cyst arises from degeneration in the connective tissue on the top of the last segment of the finger. It may connect with the joint at the end of the finger. A ganglion cyst is a swelling that often appears on or around joints and tendons in the hand or foot. I would suggest a dermatologist’s evaluation for this. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar f tn I need to figure this out though because the left sied is 50% of my useable injection sites -I don't use my thieghs. I finally went in on the left with left hand --REAL AWKWARD but hey I got it in. And I'm not going to worry about it. I've got enough problems with hair falling out and scalp rash and real itchy riba rash which I can't seem to leave alone. OH back to injection---BTW someone wise here said, and it stuck.
Avatar m tn At a family get together on the 18th. I was burned by a bottle rocket on my left hand. The index finger is the worst, being numb during most of the day. The middle finger, ring finger and thumb also have burns. All fingers are dexterous, I can feel pressure when applied and nerves seem ok. The index finger is burned on the area near the nail bed including the nail itself, the burn is isolated to the right side of the nail and finger.
Avatar n tn A pop may be felt as the tendon slips past the tight area. This why pain and catching may be felt as the finger is moved. Symptoms of trigger finger usually start without any injury. Symptoms may include the presence of a small lump, pain in the palm, swelling, and a catching or popping sensation in the finger or thumb joints. If symptoms are mild, resting the finger may be enough to resolve the problem. Over-the-counter pain medications can be used to relieve the pain.
Avatar n tn I've been advised by others that the source of swelling (i.e., the cause of the blister looking thing) on my finger is either (i) newly established scar tissue; or (ii) the result in a newly formed blister. Do these suggestions sound plausible in view of the foregoing? Also, can I expect swelling to decline in the event this is scar tissue? Best regards.
Avatar f tn It is still hurting her. Her middle finger to her pinky finger is fine, no swelling there. Her index finger and thumb are extremely swollen. Her fingers are dry and cracking at the joints. Her wrist is swollen and the palm of her hand is the worst part. She has broken blood vessels in every spot that is swelling. No discoloration at all, except the broken blood vessels ofcourse. I have pictures if you need to see them.
Avatar f tn I had to do this recently and noticed does not feel close to what it always has. I don't really know how to explain it but it is like my whole inside of my anus is completely swollen. Its even like I have to feel around as though the swelling has caused folds (for lack of a better term) and doesn't go relatively straight up as usual. I am a 33 year old female with two children.
Avatar f tn Selenium (200 strength) once daily helps with swelling. So does Motrin. For me, I had to give up gluten to get my swelling to stop. Not just a little, but completely. Read my journal about my journey to wellness. Now, I only get the swelling during times of stress, but I've eliminated the food triggers. I also take herbals to balance out my TH1 dominance. All in my journal.
Avatar m tn This is a very big inconvenience in my life. When the swelling is on my face I look like a monster and can't possibly go out in public...causing me to miss class, work, etc. The only thing I can think of is hereditary angioedema, which requires a blood test to diagnose. I can't get back into the doctor until over a month from now. Wish me luck. To all who are suffering...
5171728 tn?1364667389 ( So, I saw my HepC doctor this past Tuesday who said swelling is not a side effect of the Incivek so has now passed it off on my contacting my regular doctor (she'd rather see the HepC doctor pull back on the meds altogether, but that's not an option). So, hopefully, there'll be some much needed relief in sight soon for the swelling. Hoping your days are going well and again - my thoughts and prayers are with all of you 'warriors' going through this process. We are conquerors!!!!
Avatar n tn About 3 weeks ago this all started, where my right foot was swollen and my right hand was completely swelled up. My left hand had some finger swelling. This went down in 24-48 hours. Then a couple of days later my right knee became so stiff over a few hour period, it became extremely difficult to drive my manual car home from work. It was a nightmare pushing the clutch in. I have also had random episodes of both my bum cheeks feeling very hard at the top.
Avatar n tn Not sure if this is the correct forum for this but here goes... I've recently started having heartburn a lot. I'm a 47 yo male and have only had heartburn a couple times previously in my life and never severe. When this first started happening I went to the ER because it was so sever one night that I thought I was having a heart attack. This was the first time I had gotten it in years. After a battery of heart tests nothing was found to be wrong with my heart-- Strong like bull!
Avatar n tn I also have some numbness in my finger tips and my hand is very very weak. I had noticed over the last couple of weeks that I would have sporatic pain in my wirsts but I just brushed it off. I researched it a little on-line and I came up with the same answer... thyroid. Both of my sisters suffer from thyroid problems so I thought that it could be that.
Avatar m tn can ya'll help me i have a similar problem but it is only in my ring finger on my right hand. it feels like its burning and hot. it hurts when i hit my hand on the table, hit enter one the keyboard. can ya'll help me understand i am only 15 years old.
Avatar n tn My pinky finger on my left hand will not straighten, when people tell me to straighten my fingers i won't, it just bends slightly... Ive never had it seen to, but everyone asks if i broke it when i was younger but i really don't know. It now annoyes me as everyone points it out, but i don't know what to do about it. It doesnt hurt, well only at times wen i am asked to straighten it, and it takes effort but otherwise i don't get any pain..
Avatar n tn About six weeks ago I was stimulating my girlfriend (asymptomatic HSV-2 positive) vaginally with my finger, 7-10 days later I got a strange sensation on that finger, actually located where I have a callous. Approximately at the same time I had a small patch of dry skin on the opposite side of the sensation. I noticed the sensation while washing my hands. The sensation has since gone away but the skin where the dry skin was is a bit sensitive to touch.
Avatar m tn cud she had inserted her finger in her vagina? The thing why i am bothered abt it is becoz on the 6th day after this incident (29th) i saw a slight lump on the right side of my neck... and there was a kind of a boil under my left arm... The boil hurts when i touch it... but the neck swelling does not hurt at all. i really dunt know whts happening....i wanna get rid of all these plz help me.... what are my real risks? when shud i get tested? are these ARS?
Avatar n tn down there and make sure all was normal but I can barely stick one finger up there... I don't know why this is. It almost seems as though something in the entry area is blocking? But when I did get my finger up finally it was puffy and swollen inside. HELP! Thank you!
Avatar m tn I went to a strip club 23 days ago and was in the VIP section getting a lap dance. I ended up fingering her vagina and then at one point pulled the finger out and stupidly licked it. She was wet and as I recall my finger was a little wet too. A few days later I recalled the incident thinking why the heck did I do that and began to get worried about an STD, At first HIV, but if I'm correct that would not be a risk. My concern now is Hep B.
Avatar m tn I woke up today with a very swollen index finger. I thought maybe I'd banged it, but now my little finger is swollen, too. They hurt to touch, and my hands are still cold and normal coloured. It's only on one hand - my right. I'm getting worried, now, because this hasn't happened before. Do you know what this could be? I am due on my period this week, but I NEVER get this swelling in my joints. I have been stressed lately, but again, I don't ever swell.
Avatar n tn I seem to have the same issue, only I've linked mine to my period. It's always my left eye, no pain or itch, sight is fine, my eyelid just blows up for a day or two. Sometimes it is also the lower lid. The last 4-5 times have all happened during my period like clockwork.
12404343 tn?1425105547 (wish I could post pics) I wondered why he didnt give me anything for swelling myself. Especially since swelling is the reasons for my last 3 visits. I wasnt given my thyroid levels. But will ask for them. (thanks) I was giving levothyroxin 50mg. taken daily. with water. Have been sceduled once a month for blood work. Im not sure if I was tested for Hashimoto's, no ultrasound. I have heart problems in my family. My mother has heart failuren with blockages.
Avatar m tn i feel that she may have inserted her finger in her vagina while she was massaging my back.cud she have had vaginal secretion in her finger when she shagged me?able to infect me?(i did not have any bleeding cuts on my penis)while she was massaging my back she touched my balls a couple of times,what if she had vaginal secretion in her finger?NOW on 29Aug i felt a pea sized lump under my left arm,pained when i touched it so i left it as it was,after a week it went back.
Avatar n tn Hello all, I have had a swelling on the left side of my left leg just above my ankle, edging across to my shin bone also since around 2009. I am 23 years of age and I am 5''7 and I weight 11st 5. I have been to the doctor's a couple of times about this, they never seem very concerned. (Not sure if that could just be a cover up!) I had a thyroid test when I was about 19 and had a negative result for that.
