I was playing basketball and Jammed my thumb really bad with the ball. Didn't think it was a big deal and kept playing on it. Now its 9 days later and the pain is still there, the thumb still look like its been jammed and is still swell up. The 3 day after the jammed, it was hard for me to button my shirt, but now its not so bad, its just the tip of my thumb hurt really bad when I use pressure against it. Otherwise, it doesn't hurt at all. I was wondering if I have a chip bone or with rest it would heal. Cause usually a jammed finger goes away in 3 days, and this one hasn't. Should I get it x-ray or let it heal.
