About 5 days ago me and my boyfriend were playing

Patient

Q: About 5 days ago me and my boyfriend were playing around and I when to punch him in the leg, and I hit my thumb wrong and it instantly hurt so bad that I almost cried. Which I don't do easily. Never have I felt t pain like that on the tip of my thumb. So Now that its days later my thumb keeps getting numb at the tip. Its really scaring me. Could this be nerve damage? If not, what is cause he numbness? Its driving me crazy.

Thanks so much,
Nikole
