I had to get between two students today to prevent

I had to get between two students today to prevent a fight. With my hand open, I placed my hand on the student’s chest. The student leaned into my hand. I didn’t feel pain at the time, but my adrenaline was running high. Within 10-15 minutes, the medial side of my wrist, from my thumb and up through my wrist began to ache. I’m curious as to whether this is a sprain or strain. I’m resting it, icing it and have it wrapped. I have full motion, it’s just aching. Thanks!

i am an adult and do not remember having taken a MMR vaccine. My mother remembers that I had mumps when I was 6 or 7 years old, but is not sure whether the vaccination was done. I have to travel to an African country where there is an outbreak of Measles. Would you recommend my getting this vaccination done? Are there any side effects? Is this done in 2 does? Is there a cooling period between the two doses and also after the two doses for starting the journey abroad? Apologies for the long question and thanks in anticipation. Rajiv

I work in a nursery class where 11 of the children have confirmed chicken pox . I have never had chicken pox myself, despite my own two children having infections in their early years. I am due to visit my sister and her newborn baby in 10 days time. Would I be putting the baby at risk of catching chicken pox, even if I appear to be un-infected?

I have a spot between two molars that randomly started hurting (a dull ache, no sharp pain) last night while brushing my teeth. It also bled a little. It only happens when I brush my teeth, so I m fine while eating and drinking. No heightened sensitivity. I m also a grinder, but it didn t happen yesterday morning. I did use a different toothpaste yesterday morning, but it is one I have used before. I m unemployed and uninsured and cannot afford to see a dentist.
