I fell yesterday and caught myself by making a fist. My index finger and middle finger are bruised, limited range of motion, swelling. I saw a doctor yesterday. My knuckles are bruised. The pain is worse today and swelling increased. Should I go back to the doctor?

The doctor gave me a splint to support my wrist and thumb, but that's not where a majority of the pain is.

Thanks for info ...

As you have had your X ray that showed small cracks and no significant fractures si , swelling , redness , pain is the body response against injury that take almost 5 to 7 days to settle , so you need not to worry , splint is already applied on the wrist for support that is good but you should keep yourself little calm , as it will take almost week for recovery .

Continue pain killer , elevation and rest .

No need to worry .

Good luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thanks .
