To me it sounds like the fluid has moved down, due to gravity. Try elevating your lower arm to above the level of your shoulder, rested on pillows say, to allow the fluid to drain, which it will do.
If you feel ill or are getting any pain see a medic ASAP
I have looked it up and I have the symptoms of carpal tunnel. However, my whole arm, even way up in my shoulder area really hurt. My wrist hurts all the time, but when I do have pains throughout the arm, they are very painful, but at least those pains eventually go away. The pain in my wrist does not go away though. So I am unsure of what this is, does anyone know what this could be?
If you haven’t injured your arm or overused it in any way, you’re probably sleeping on it wrong. I know it sounds stupid, but putting pressure on the arm at the wrong angle at nights will actually cause pain, tingling and stiffness. It’s an easy fix though. Get a brace for your wrist. Don’t get one that has elastic anything in it, because the last thing you need is pressure on the area you want to heal. The foam ones that lace up are perfect. During the day, wear it normally. At night, undo the laces so that it’s as loose as a baggy shirt sleeve. If it’s tight, you’ll wake up in horrible pain and your fingers will look kind of like purple sausages. If you leave it really loose, the worst that can happen is that it will fall off and you’ll roll over on it just long enough to either put it back on or toss it to the floor. The reason for this is that you will not be able to sleep on that arm, which will keep it from adding to the problem while it’s trying to heal.
Is an IV drop really necessary because i’m not good with needles into my body and such. If it is necessary could they do it after i went to sleep?
For the anesthesia can it be from the mask and not through a needle, again not a big fan on needles.
After the surgery i’m going to feel bad and they said i will have a gauze in my mouth anybody know what it is and how big it is? I’m not good with having that in my mouth probably and me being me might gag.
Edit: Once they put the iv drop on how long will it take before i pass out?
They will give you a gas mask for oxygen and they also say they will give you some laughing gas. Most of the time, the laughing gas will make you feel a bit light-headed and relaxed so you won’t even notice if they put the IV in you. For me, the laughing gas had no effect on me so I was completely conscious for the IV. The surgeon put a rubber band around my arm so they could see the veins more clearly and it was a tiny pinch and the IV was injected. It feels just like a small shot. And yes, the IV is injected through a shot, and has to be. You will fall asleep in literally less than half a minute so you won’t even get much of a chance to see or feel anything. The actual operation takes about 5-6 minutes per tooth. And after they are finished, it will usually take you about 10 minutes to wake up. But the whole thing really only feels like a minute.
As long as you use general anesthesia, and take your painkillers on a tight schedule, and follow your doctor’s instructions on post-operative care, you will be fine. I never had any pain with the surgery, and no swelling. So, don’t worry about it. Your stressing out is actually the hardest part of the procedure. That’s what will make you most uncomfortable. But trust me, once you get into that chair and they put you on the IV, you won’t even get a chance to worry about it. You will fall asleep and a minute later, you’re done and out of there. Really. But if you’re really that scared for it, you can ask them to give you valium. It will relax you and make you less anxious and scared.
The gauze is very small. It’s like having a tiny cotton ball that you bite down on, on either side of your mouth. I gag real easily too, but it never gave me the tiniest feeling of needing to gag.
This procedure was actually easier than going to the dentist for a regular checkup. I felt absolutely wonderful during the recovering stage. No pain, no swell, no complications.
Good luck with your surgery and hope you have a fast recovery
