Finger broken? Strained? Does it matter?
Asked Feb 14, 2012, 04:49 AM
After wrestling with my son yesterday, my pinky finger was sore - at the tip and the joint closest to the tip. I could make a fist with just a little pain. Within a couple hours it was black and blue, much more swollen and very painful.
I'm wearing a splint on it to keep it immobilized.
I'd rather not go to the Dr. if all they'll do is say "it's broken" or "it's sprained" and "just wear a splint on it".
Am I thinking correctly? Any reason to go to the Dr.
