Patient :Last night I trapped my finger in the door, since it happened I haven't bent it or anything, it went purple/green as soon after I trapped it and quite swollen. The nuckle upwards is mostly the bit that it's painful, I've had ice on it since and seems to not change. I'm not sure if it's broken or not and don't want to go hospital unless I deffo know. Saw I nurse at school and they said to get it checked out cause should be how it is.
