I was kickboxing about a month ago, when i accidentally
Patient :I was kickboxing about a month ago, when i accidentally punched a metal plate above the speed ball. It swelled up so i could not see my ring finger knuckle. One month later, it is still swollen, i have a permanent bruise (about the size of the sharp end of a nail) It does not hurt at all to move it, i can move it how ever i want ect. But if anything touches the space in between the knuckles, it hurts like hell (I am usually good with pain, broken my nose before an i didn't complain, broken wrist also did not feel as bad as this) , it gets very swollen and the bruise expands. I am pretty sure it is not broken, as i can move my hands, fingers ect without pain. I tried ice and heat, but it does not help with the swelling or pain. Any ideas?
