Ulna fracture--new pain after 2 weeks
I broke my ulna 2 weeks ago (clean break, minimally displaced) and up until yesterday have had no pain after having the cast put on. I haven't been wearing my sling often because it causes neck and back pain, and my shoulder has been able to support my long arm cast. Yesterday I began feeling an intermittent burning and aching pain at the site of the break. The pain is not associated with any movements and seems to be random nerve pain. This is not excruciating, but it is alarming considering that this is the first pain i've had since the cast was put on. Is this just part of the healing process, or a byproduct of my elbow and wrist being immobilized? Any cause for concern?
