Question: My daughter XXXXXXX went to Urgent Care today and was diagnosed with De Quervain's tenosynovitis and she was given a splint and Naproxen Sodium. She also has a skin disorder called Epidermolyisis Bullosa Simplex. She is having sharp pain and is so grouchy right now I don't want to be around her. Besides ice and heat is there anything else we can possibly do? I think I will take her to Dr. Hillyer our Family Practice MD in the morning. Might be a long night. I never thought of tendonitis as severe pain.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your problem I will like to tell you that generally De querveins tenosynovitis does not lead to this much amount of pain . But still few things I will suggest is to immobilse the hand completely as the movement provoctaes the pain .

Next if possible you can try out some opioid analgesics like tramadol for pain relief if naproxen is not able to control the pain . You should try steroid injection for de querveins synovitis and discuss regarding this with your treating doctor .

At present you should see for tramadol for pain relief .

Take care.

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

My period is now 16 days late, and it is very regular...I use a menstruation tracker. I have been feeling sick to my stomach, getting headaches, severe backaches, and feeling dizzy. I did take a pregnancy test, but it was negative, so I wasn't too worried because I am on the pill (although there were probably a few times where I forgot to take it and then doubled up the next night). Suddenly today, I started getting severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen (mostly on the left side, but radiating to both sides) and severe pains in my upper abdomen, like I was going to throw up...I feel weak and started to have bright red bleeding, although it isn't heavy. all day today before the pain, I was having brown discharge that had stringy clots in it. I am debating on visiting the ER and wanted to ask your opinion.
