Growing up I’ve been Jack the lad. I need my hands for my job, but to my knowledge I’ve got three broken fingers, damaged knuckles, and in one of my fingers the bone split downwards, not across. Now I’m older, my fingers won’t fully move, I can’t straighten them, and it hurts to clench my fist. I’m a bricklayer, and holding my trowel if my fingers press against each other really hurt. I know my fingers are trying to heal but my fingers are twisted, not straight. I can’t even stretch my hand and fingers out. I also have no strength in my hand or fingers and they hurt worse when cold.

My finger has been swollen for 5 days and the middle joint is swollen and hurts. I think I might have broken it.

Not sure If I broke the tip of my finger. I can still move it and do everything with it. It’s my pinky finger by the way, but it’s swollen and sore.

I fell up a step at the movies, it was pitch dark. I had my finger x-rayed 6 weeks later and was told I had a fracture. Two months on from the fall my finger is still swollen and sore.

I hurt my pinky finger yesterday when I tried to keep a crock pot from falling. It is very swollen, with bluish color on each side of my hand. I think it will be okay, but wonder if I will have problems later.

My pinky finger was broken 3 years ago. I had it set, however I didn’t wear the splint properly, and now it has healed bent. I wonder what the doctor will do to fix it or straight again.

A dodgeball hit the top of my finger and hurts really bad. I can move it but there is no bruising.
