Injured finger and unsure of severity

Last night I was picking up my kids' toy chest and I felt a sharp pain in my middle finger. It's bruised in the center and the bruise spread. Now today the bruise is about the size of a nickle on the inside of my finger and my finger tip is completely numb. I can movie it around and it only hurts where the bruise is. Any ideas?

  • Wow that is very very strange. Maybe you got a little stress fracture? I would definitely make an appointment with your doctor youll probably need an xray.

  • Bruised bone maybe, broken finger, or nerve damage? I would call the doctor. See if you can make payments... Numbness is never a good thing, and the longer it is numb the worse the problem is,
