My friend recently came to me with a question about

Patient : My friend recently came to me with a question about his hand I was a combat medic in the military so this happens quite often. Anyway he was complaining that he had pain in the back of his hand but said there was trama to cause it. I thought tendinitis because he is a carpenter so kind of fits, but two days later the hand has began to swell on the back of his hand and the swelling is moving up his arm. He also complained that he was having a sharp pain in upper back below clavicle accompanied with feeling of lack of breath could thisbe pulmonary edema or maybe be a staff infection
