Dear Blossom,

it is not possible for me to make an exact diagnosis of the problem you have with your hand with the history only, you will have to see somebody to examine you and you will require an X-ray at least to help in solving the problem. You may for example have arthritis in the wrist and that will be apparent on an X-ray

AFTER CAR ACCIDENT IN DECEMBER 2008, I HAVE A PLATE AND 10 SCREWS IN L HUMERUS. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THE BONE IS NOT KNITTING AND AM IN CONSTANT PAIN. I HAVE A METALS ALLERGY, COULD THIS BE CAUSING THE SEVERE PAIN?
