So, I think this is the right term. I was playing In the Groove at the arcade yesterday and I stoved my fingers on my left hand really bad. (The game
is like Dance Dance Revolution, in this one song I had to hit three panels at one time, two with my feet and one with my hand, and I slammed my hand
into it the wrong way and smashed my fingers the wrong way.)
Anyways, my primary concern is this - how can I make sure that my finger isn't broken? I gently pushed in and pulled on the finger most affected, and
it didn't hurt any differently. So I don't think it's broken.
I've just noticed dull but tolerable pain for the past day, so that's probably normal, right?
(I've been injured before playing DDR - one time I tripped and smashed my shin on the pad pretty good. On two other occasions I pushed myself really
hard on an incredibly intense song and almost passed out. One girl awhile back did completely pass out and needed medical help, but she had a severe
medical condition that contributed to it. I've heard of people with various other injuries.)
