Knot on my wrist
I have a knot on my wrist. I hit it at work one day and had to go the er. They told me it was a cyst and that the pain would go away. It constantly hurts and the pain goes up my arm. The other day I felt another knot on my knuckle that hurts as well. What should I do?
I don't recommend the ER for this kind of problem. See your primary care doctor if the pain persists much longer. If it continues to be a problem over the next few weeks, you may have to see an orthopedist or rheumatologist.
