    Arm Pain

    My daughter's (almost 3) arm was pulled and now it hurts for her to move/bend it. She says it hurts on the inside of her elbow and sometimes says her hand hurts. She can still bend her arm and move her wrist fingers (though it hurts). We are going to let her get a full night's rest and see how it is in the morning (her activity level is normal and she is only in pain when she moves it). We gave her children's tylenol. Does this seem to be a sprain? How long would something like this typically take to heal?

    Just wanted to let you know this Community, is the Bipolar Disorder one........not parenting - BUT, I do have a thought here....

    My youngest daughter had this happen twice to her, and it was actually her elbow joint got pulled out of socket - - a Dr. may need to re-set it for her.

    The first time it happened, we waited like you, but the second time it happened, we took her to the pedi right away.

    This is not uncommon in young children with loose joints - a trip to the pedi and they can fix it ASAP.

    Take care,
    -Kathleen
