Pain and Swelling in arm
eneriotos posted:
Hi, I just wanted to know what my symptom is related to. I have severe pain on my lower right arm, it started last year with numbness on three ringers, now it's all over my hand and it includes swelling and a lot of pain. The funny thing is I usually wake up with my hand swollen, even when I stay in the same position.

Sounds like a visit to your doctor is in order. Most of us are not health care professionals, plus it is both impossible and against the rules in all WebMD communities to offer any type of diagnosis or medical advice.

Your symptoms could be caused by a number of conditions that only your doctor can diagnose and treat. If cost is an issue, then seek a free or low-cost clinic in your area. If it becomes an emergency, get to a hospital emergency room as soon as possible.

I pray you get answers, treatment and relief soon.

I'm no doctor, mind you, but numbness graduating to severe pain and swelling at night is related to nothing good, I can promise you that. What' is "funny" to me is that there are a great many things we can hide from plain view but faltering health is not one of them. As unpleasant as it may seem, sometimes we have to reveal the truth for everyone to see in order to get better. We all need help at times, so, go get some.
