Any suggestion for having bump/bruise on forehead and swelling in hand/foot?

Two nights ago I fell down a flight of stone steps at a friends house in a half awake state on the way to the bath room. I was lucky to have no neck or spine injury but hit my head on the wall on the way down. I have a good sized bump and bruze on my forhead but no headache or other symtoms. also sprained my hand and foot with a little swelling but no pain I can walk but can´t really use my hand although it is better today. Should I go to the doctor?

Hi,

If you are not able to use your hand properly, it requires x-rays and consultation with your doctor. There could be a small fracture.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Gopal Goel, Orthopaedic Surgeon

I am 72 years old and suffer from continuous brusing on the back of my hands and cannot even shake hands anymore without causing bruises. The skin is thin and the blood vessles appear near to the surface. I take Ibuprofin for foot problems and 5mg of hytrin each night for BPH; nothing else. Problem also exists on arms if bumped at all. Any suggestions for treatment?

I pinched my hand yesterday. Several hours later I noticed a large swelling and bruise use on the back of my hand. I applied ice. Now the bruise has spread to the knuckles on 3 fingers and up to the wrist. My concern is maybe I severed a vein and is still bleeding. There is no break in the skin and very little pain. Should I be concerned?

Hi. I went down a water slide a year ago banging my let hard. It didn t swell up straight away but after a while a lump the size of a golf ball appeared. The first aide guy said to elevate it and use a cold pack. My grandson wanted me to keep going with him so I did. The spot is still very sore and slightly discoloured on skin as if the bruising was still there. Now the bone is aching below the spot. What do you think?

left ankle i went in on sunday a couple hours after my injury and i was told it was an ankle sprain. 2 days later and the swelling is worse. to give you some background this ankle has been surgically repaired for ligament damage. because of the the swelling becoming worse do i need to go back in right away or still give it a couple of days? also the majority of pain is on the inside of my ankle and on top. thanks.

I sprained my ankle on May 27th and went to the doctor the following day and received an air cast. I ve been wearing the cast pretty much non-stop, as when I try to walk without it, I often feel pain. Every so often when I walk (wearing the cast or not) I feel a pop in my ankle and a severe pain for about 10 seconds. I haven t really thought much of it, but pretty much all day today I ve felt a burning sensation and was wondering if this was normal since I haven t felt this until now (aside from when I had the air cast too tight, but I felt that within about a minute).
