  • Have you checked it under a magnifying glass? I woke up with a swollen thumb, with a bit of pain, it progressed to swollen hand, lot of pain. Went to ER when sudden pain was excruciating, they gave me antibiotics and sent me home. That night, while cleaning the playroom, I came upon some binoculars Out of bored curiosity, I turned them backwards, looking through the big end, and looked at my thumb- and lo and behold, there glittered a multitude of glass shards! I didn't even know they got me, they were such small shards. Glass is likely not your dilemma, with you having no pain, but it's a good idea to take a closer look! So break out the magnifying glass if you have one!
