Customer Question

we were at a baseball game tonight and my finger felt like it was stung, but it wasn't. I looked down and my middle finger on the palm side has a big bruise on it now. I was leaning on the fence. Should I be concerned?

definitely a finger injury of some sort

You must have nipped a blood vessel.

I might have hit it wrong while leaning on the fence I guess. It felt like a sting and then it looked like it was blue. What do you mean nicked a blood vessel....there is no cut just a bruise.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.

Blood vessel inside. You tore it a bit on the fence. But minor
