for last 10 days i am having pain in my left wrist . first i thought it might be a sprain, but usually it would go away in 3-4 days, but this one hasn t gone in 10 days. i am not able to pinpoint where exactly the pain is, but it does pain when my wrist is in normal resting position. It pains if i try to twist it in different directions and angles. just wanted to know is this a possible heart attack symptom? my age is 32. if yes how do i confirm or reject this possibility

My grandson is having problems with wetting his pants. He has been to a pediactric urologist and they call it bladder spasms. He has been on 5 different types of medicines to help this. He is 8 yrs. old and weighs 60 pounds. He had infantile spasms when he was 5 months old, but is currently leading a normal life. He has been on Leucovorin and B6 since he was diagnosed. Could he be having a seizure or something that would be causing this?.
