Several weeks ago now, I injured my middle knuckle of my right hand. I punched something hard to dent it, as I didn't have a hammer to hand, and normally that wouldn't be a problem, I didn't punch that hard!
The knuckle immediately felt very painful, although tolerable, and it slowly died down after a while, so I figured I'd just bruised it and it'd go back to normal.
Now though, it's been several weeks and the knuckle is painful at it's extremes of actuation. I.e, if my fist is tightly clenched, or I'm holding something tightly, or bending the finger in any way - so any pressure on the join in any direction gives me pain.
Does this mean I've trapped a nerve?
I'm a professional programmer, so need my fingers for my job. I'm 25, otherwise healthy male.
Any advice is much appreciated.
