What do you think of bad wrist pain in a young girl?
She's 15, and ever since I've known her she's always had extremely flexible joints. For example she used to be able to bend her thumb to her arm, bend her little finger back to her hand, stuff like that. She dislocates her joints easily, too, to the point it recently has kept her from taking part in sport-games, though she used to play football, basketball and handball.
Point is, two days ago her right wrist started to hurt badly.
It's strange, cause it doesn't look swollen or red, but she can hardly move it, it's so stiff. She says the pain is centered in the middle of her wrist, and it's sensitive to the touch. It's worse when she moves her fingers.
The weirdest thing about it is that an other part of her lower arm did start to swell up, although that doesn't hurt one bit, not red, not sensitive. Just a lump. A big one, actually. It's right below her wrist, at the inner-upper side of her forearm.
So: stiff painful wrist and lump on forearm. Any ideas?
