How do i know if something in my hand or wrist is broke
X Ray.

Ibuprofen for the swelling.
Question Author
I can move wrist slightly and all fingers easily


Surely chances of a break are low?

Bruising in middle of palm and struggle (but can) move hand backwards or ‘upwards’
Doesn't sound too bad, try a tubigrip (not too tight).
Both.

Whats the paracetamol doseage??
Question Author
Worse part is left hand bottom wiping the struggle is real
The usual dose for adults is one or two 500mg tablets up to 4 times in 24 hours.

Sympathise with that problem, five weeks into recovery from proximal humerus fracture and it's not easy.

Thanks mamy will pop some paracetamol for pain!


I think i’ve just got a bad sprain! Not sure it compared to a humerous fracture :S but i appreciate the sympathys
That sounds painful lynne
Spath RICE! rest, Ice, compress (gently) and elevate
Have you ever broken a bone before?
Someone on here will correct me if this isn't a good idea, but when I have pain that I know paracetamol won't touch, (ie- not headache or period pain) I sometimes have co-codamol 4mg. It has managed to rid me of some really bad pain, such as arthritic joint pain and dislocations. Co-codamol contains 500mg paracetamol so must not be taken with any other paracetamol. The small amount of codeine seems to be just enough to alter pain. I think you can buy the lowest dose over the counter.

"Have you ever broken a bone before?"

Yes, a few times. Once was the wrist. Another time the collar bone.
