Brief Answer:
Go back to see your dr

Detailed Answer:
if your arm is still symptomatic and your dr told you that he thought it should be improved by now then I would return to see him as it may prompt some further investigation such as an X-ray. soft tissue injuries generally take a week or two to improve. fractures take 4 to 6 weeks. do you have any other specific questions. if you tell me more about the particular symptoms you are experiencing I may be able to give your more specific advice.

Brief Answer:
ACJ injury, investigate lump, diabetes

Detailed Answer:
Hi thanks for your further question.

You may have sprained your acromioclavicular joint or ACJ for short. This is the joint at the end of the collar bone between this bone and the acromium bone. If it is a bad injury this can produce a lump in this area. If the lump is in a different location then I suggest you get your doctor to examine this area and organize some further investigations such as an Xray, an ultrasound scan and possibly an MRI scan.

A blood sugar of 85 would usually mean you have diabetes and so you should have this further checked out with a fasting glucose which your doctor can arrange. If you are diabetic then this will mean you will have to modify your diet and possibly start on medication.

I hope this further answers your question.

Brief Answer:
Glucose normal. Lump needs checked out

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for your further question.

Sorry I thought you meant 8.5 not 85 - this is normal in the values that you gave. We measure it a little differently in Canada.

The lump certainly needs to be checked out by your doctor although it could simply be a prominent rib head.

Brief Answer:
Further tests of abdominal issues required.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your further question. If the lump is painful then all the more reason to get it checked out.

You should also have your abdominal symptoms investigated. You should see your Dr who can physically examine you abdomen and organize some further tests such as a gastroscopy or barium swallow to make a diagnosis as to the cause of your problem.

Brief Answer:
Picture would help

Detailed Answer:
if you could post a picture this may help identify the lump. most lumps are benign i.e not serious. I was under the impression that the lump was bony and close to you spine in the midline. it could be a rib if it is in your chest or a prominent spinous process.

Ok I am think about call the doctor torrmow and i hurt my knee the other my right knee and hurt bad and middle top and bottom hurts bad.

Brief Answer:
knee injury discussed

Detailed Answer:
Hi again, thanks for your follow up question. I'm sorry to hear that you also hurt your knee. Your Dr should be able to examine it to determine if you need to have an Xray. Most soft tissue injuries in the knee joint improve spontaneously over a few weeks but can be helped along with physiotherapy. If your symptoms do not improve you may require further imaging of your knee such as an MRI scan.

I hope this answers your question.

Brief Answer:
Sore throat discussed

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your follow up question.

Ideally you should not use an antibiotic that was given for another problem to treat your sore throat. the majority of sore throats are caused by viral infections and so an antibiotic will make no difference to it. I would ask your doctor to perform a throat swab to look for bacteria and go from there.
