This morning I became very angry and punched a door.... not very hard....but hard enough, I guess. I had a cut across my first two knuckles, so in an
attempt to NOT injure my hand and reopen the cuts, I aimed at it with my ring finger and pinkie (maybe I should have not punched a door in the first
The pinkie knuckle took the most damage. At first there was no more than the expected pain in the knuckle. However, within minutes my wrist and hand
started to tighten up. My hand is now very swollen in the fleshy area of the palm right underneath the pinkie and there is a developing bruise there.
The front side of my hand, underneath the pinkie , is also extremely swollen.
I have pain in my wrist and in the area I described. I cannot bend my hand back without feeling pain or tightness. I tried using a knife to cut a
piece of bread and I was not able to because of the pain. Hell, I couldn't even tear a piece of seran wrap using my thumb and forefinger. If I put
any pressure on my hand as to, let's say, get up from a chair it's excruciating.
Wtf did I do to myself? The only part of my hand that connected with the door were my knuckles. (ringfinger and pinkie) My wrist did not bend at all
when I hit it and like I said, I did not hit it very hard.
I have an appointment with the doc tomorrow, but I'm just curious to see what you all can come up with. I don't think I broke anything... or atleast
I hope not. Maybe I injured a tendon, or nerve?
