how to tell if you have a fracture or just a bruise?
I am 4'9" and am 200 lbs. My bed is on risers, approximately 8 inches above my waist. I was getting into my bed and had my fist closed and arm extended. I pushed up on my hand and went to jump in and my arm gave way. I can move my fingers,yet they are swollen. When I move them or my wrist about 3 1/2 to 5 inches above my wrist there is a very tender to the touch spot. There seems to be no outward bruising yet my forearm has marked swelling for 2 days now and it hurts bad. My friend that is a LPN said because i am a hairdresser that it may be a stress fracture, i can't afford to be out of work or to make more bills. I have rested the arm, iced it and have take pain relievers. i am also expiencing pins and needles in my fingers too

Unless you have other medical issues that weaken your bones I wouldn't be inclined to believe it's a stress fracture. I am inclined to believe that you over extended the tendons, causing them to swell which in turn is putting pressure on your nerves which is making the pins and needles in your fingers. Depending on how severe it is today or tomorrow will be the worst of it and then it should start getting better. If it doesn't then you've done something else that needs to be looked at by a doctor. This isn't something you need to rush off to the ER where care is more expensive. You could see if there is a clinic in your area - kinda like a walk in doctor's office - and have it checked out at a much lower cost then the ER. If you have a doctor give them a call and see if you can't make payment arrangements in advance. Good luck.

If your friend is really a LPN, have her explain to you what a stress fracture is. That is an amazing story.
