Hey all. I've been doing slightly better lately with anxiety. This week was my first full week back to lectures & work. If I get through today this week will be pretty much a success. I'm learning to celebrate small achievements.
But last night I took a long walk while I chatted on the phone with family. The phone call lasted nearly 3 and a half hours, and it got pretty cold. When I got back to my place I noticed my middle finger on my left hand was swollen. It doesn't hurt but it's definitely puffy, and uncomfortable to make a fist.
I went to bed and now, nearly 12 hours later, it's still swollen. I'm wondering if it's because of the cold? Or keeping my hand at my side while walking? I also carried a small bag in that hand, but only for maybe 30 minutes max during the walk.
It's making me very nervous thinking it could be frostbite, a blood clot, an allergic reaction, etc. Should I wait it out for today? Do I need to see a doctor? Ugh
Thanks for any help
