yesterday, after a strange body-wide pain, I ended um having dizziness, cold sweats and extreme nausia. Gor worse after eating yogurt to calm the heart burn. SPent the night alternating between sweats and shivers. SInce the morning, I still have heart burn and nausia. Last week I ended a course on antibiotics for an open fracture and both my wife and I experienced gastric distress after drinking what we suspect was bad water. How do alleviate my heart burn/nausia now?

So get in 2-3 days , doxycycline 2 capsules / days with water.

Hi, I am 29 years old and I broke the lower part of my tibia 42 days ago. I have been in a long leg last since then. No surgery was done because my doctor said that the bones are not dislocated and they look very stable. However, when I move my body, sometimes I hear a weird sound like rubbing coming from either my up leg or my broken bones. I am not 100% sure. I am wondering if it is normal to hear rubbing sounds after 7 weeks from the broken part. It makes me feel like I am not healing at all. My second question is, am I going to see any advancement in the xray after 47 day?

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

Strictly speaking, there should not be any movement occuring at the fracture site after a cast application.

It is possible to feel or hear a grating sensation from the fracture site when the fractured ends move over one other due to minimal movement. This minimal...

I HAVE A BONE FRACTURE 10 DAYS BACK. I had an operation (fixing through plate and screws). But while dressing my hand for every 2 days, i observed that i am unable to rotatte my hand. I have doubt whether to do exercises to my hand now or not. Please advice me.

doctor1 MD

I think your doc might advised you... strictly not to rotate now. after 4 weeks you can start doing that slowly, and it is always adviseable to get the plate removed after six months.

I injured my leg as I stepped down off stool. As I stepped down the step broke and I came down really hard on my left leg. 2 Days after the accident I started having fevers and chills so I went to the doctor to rule out a bone fracture. They performed an XRAY and told me it was a bone bruise on the lower left leg above the ankle. Now, 2 days after the Docto rs appointment my left leg is swelling all the way up to my knee and my thigh seems tight. Should I go back to see the doctor?

doctor1 MD

Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
The swelling that you have could be due to a bone bruise and associated hematoma in the area. Since X-ray has ruled out any serious injury, keeping the foot elevated on two pillows will help in reducing the swelling.
I hope this information has been both...

i had a broken metecarple and it was repaired by putting screws in to hold the broken bone. Now, 6 months later i am still having trouble with my hand, when i make a fist it feels real tight around the knuckle and somewhat painful. my knuckle is about 3/8" shorter than it was before the brake, and i am thinking this could be the cause for the tightness? A hand specialist said he cannot really get the bone back to normal and the tightness should go away over time. Whats your thoughts?

doctor1 MD

Hi, You had broken metacarpal boe and repaired by putting screws, after 6 months also having pain, making a fist.
First of all you should leave the fear of pain, that is physiotherapy, try to do every work you can do with that hand, if no relief consult a physiotherapist , if still no...
