  • QUESTION?

    hi This may not be the place I need to post this..but.. I do have a question and I wanted to see if any-one had ever expercienced this pain ?
    Lately (about 2 months) I have been having pain in my right hand around my thumb and at wrist area.I went to my primary care Dr. and she sent me to a bone specialist.. which he did a x-ray... and said he could not find anything in the wrist /hand but from the way I was explaing to him how my pain was and also it shoots sharp pain up my arm too. He said it could be in my shoulders: which I told him my shoulders are always in burning pain. He got x ray of my shoulder-- which showed very bad arthrittis(mispelled) and something else ! he wants to believe it is a
    "SPUR" .... HE IS SENDING ME TO THE hospital to get a MRI done on shoulder tomorrow. MY QUESTION IS ... WHAT IS A ''SPUR''... and if IT IS a SPUR -WHAT CAN BE DONE WITH IT.? My hand hurts so bad
    and I can't bearly use it . It is very weak and
    I drop everything!!!! Any info. would really help me out on understanding a "Spur". I go back to this dr. next week to go over the results so maybe I will know something more on a SPUR before I go back to him.

    Thanks so much and I am sorry to keep on and on.. but I need help .THIS IS JUST ADDED PAIN ALONG WITH ALL MY OTHER PAIN!!! TAKE CARE,Love Brenda

    A spur is a calcium growth that can form in a joint --- on the X-ray mine looked like half of a feather and was rubbing on a muscle, causing my pain. I had mine surgically removed. The orthopedist scraped the growth away. It worked, by the way. The only memory I have of the pain is a scar on my shoulder.

    Sending an encouraging hug,

    Stay safe
