I have done something to my hand and i can't

Patient : I have done something to my hand and i can't move my thumb as it's at the bottom of my thumb and it's really swollen.
Doctor :   Hi. Thanks for your query. It looks that you have traumatized the base of the thumb. I would advise you in such a situation the following: Visit the ER /Orthopedic Surgeon for clinical evaluation. X-ray of the hand. Treatment as per the findings. In the meantime you can take Ibuprofen if it suits. Do not try something at home. I hope this answer helps you.
