So... over the course of the day my elbow has gone weird looking
- it's red and swollen and sort of squooshy feeling. The skin feels warm to the touch and it is tender. Doctor Google tells me it's probably Bursitis. So... I should probably go get it checked out. But is it a rush to the docs tonight thing or a wait to tomorrow thing?

I work at a desk 10 to 12 hours a day. Lately, I've been noticing lately that my calves, feet, and ankles seem swollen. I'm not in any pain and don't feel any difference, apart from my shoes being a bit tight.
Besides taking periodic breaks and walking around/stretching, what else can I do to reduce the swelling? I get daily exercise, but I'm sure the long periods of sitting in front of a computer are contributing to this.

My gf has a swollen puffy lump about 2.5" wide on the base of her spine, no discoloration or pain, it just appeared at the same time she got a sudden sharp stabbing pain in her right lower back - are these 2 things related, if so, can anyone tell us what it means?
Obviously we need to talk to the doctors, but she's been working with them for years and no one can tell us anything yet - we thought someone else might have some ideas? [more inside]

I had surgery two days ago, under general anesthesia.
When I got out yesterday, it kind of felt weird in my mouth.
After some research, I found that my uvula was pretty swollen and it felt like I'm going to swallow it.
The surgery had nothing to do with my mouth, but I did have a breathe tube, so my whole mouth felt kind of sore after the surgery. [more inside]

Why do my fingers and ear lobes swell and get hot in cold weather? Is there a medical term for this phenomenon?
