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.
