3 years ago I fell and broke my shoulder. I had caught my foot on the step and fell.. My foot was never checked out and now I have swelling from circuation or water retention. the swelling gets very serve with slight tingling and recently red botches. I do take a water pill but that is not helping for the most part. some days are worse then others. I also have a pain on the top of my foot that hits when I step just the right way.. in your opinion could I have damaged some nerves or veins or something in my foot at the time I fell..

Two years ago I fell and broke my left thumb . After a short period of time I began to have pain in the scapula area in my back, then my left shoulder began having tremendous pain and limited motion in my left arm. I have had two MRI s and a torn rotator cuff was eliminated. It was determined that I have a bulging disc in the 5-6 vertebrae with a pinched nerve causing the limitation of motion and pain in my back and down my left arm to the left thumb. This may have been caused by the fall. Now I am having pitting edema in my left ankle. Also I have severe indigestion (which I feel is not connected) and I am not taking any medications. I did have cortisone injections in my neck which helped the pain for a short while, but is returning. Is there any connection with the swelling and the pinched nerve?

My 91 year old mother has Alzheimer s she recently lived with us fell and broke her leg and now is in rehab the Alzheimer s has escalated she still knows who we are and others are she still knows that she s not at home she cries and begs to come home but she wants to go to the home she had before she moved in with us. My father died five years ago and that s all she talks about is wanting to be with him she can t understand why God has not taken her yet she begs to die but she doesn t want to commit suicide knowing she won t get into heaven if she does. I ve had some friends in a similar situation but their parents Were not as old as my mother stating that I should talk to the doctors about removing her from her medication so that her body will give up for lack of a better term I don t know what to do I don t want to lose my mother but seeing her like this hurts so bad is it It wrong to remove her from her blood pressure medication level thyroxine because that s the only medicine she s on. But then I feel like I m pulling a Trigger I don t I don t know what to do
