Good morning. I fell on my thumb the last Monday of June. It was x-rated but no fracture. I still have pain and a slight bit of swelling. Wondering if I should see a specialist or if they would be able to do anything for me. It hasn't gotten any better.

I have had numbness and tingling in the outside part of my

I have had numbness and tingling in the outside part of my right knee for about 6 months. Lately it has been painful for me to put weight on the knee - for example when I am on my hands and knees or when I lean on it to get into bed. It does not effect my walking and is not real painful when I am just sitting, but the numbness has turned into a dull pain. Any ideas?

I have a reoccurring pain up gh on the inside of my right

I have a reoccurring pain up high on the inside of my right thigh. I first noticed it Thursday night. Yesterday, Sunday, I had no pain at all. The pain is a dull pain. Last Friday I did some intense pruning of trees and shrubs in my yard and was sometimes up on a ladder. I didn't feel any pain while working but later that evening the pain would return, depending on how I was sitting or standing. It doesn't interfere with my sleep. When I woke up this morning at my usual time, I could slightly feel the pain, making me think I need to check this out further. I am a 69 year old male. Thank you.

I have electric shooting pain now with partial numbness of

Hi Pearl. I have electric shooting pain now with partial numbness of the index finger - when reaching for something or extending my arm. Also beginning to feel similar onset of symptoms in thumb of opposite hand. Big toe on right foot has electrical sensation when stretching or pointing toe. Trying to rule out some things. ThanksJA: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? In general, how would you describe your health lately?Customer: Worse with extension. Better with no extension. Energized but fatigued due to insomnia - stress due to job change, moving. Weather here is not good for me - damp cold - since eating an eat right for your blood type diet, feeling much better overall. Joint pain and stiffness much improved but knees were weak, now improved with therapy.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: Scoliosis. Cervical weirdness when I am looking down and turning my head - it's a clicking sound. I feel like cervical spine is weak - muscles are getting increasingly stiff - exercise and gentle stretching helps a lot. No major diseases or hospitalizations.JA: OK. Got it.
