Re: Trapped a finger in a door
It's a weird thing to describe. About 5 years ago on another finger, I cut right through to the bone, nearly lost the end of my finger. As it was healing, the cut area was numb, BUT oddly it was hypersensative at the same time (Like a DEEP pain... Other nerves?)
That injury healed years ago, but it's the same feeling I am getting now on this new injury. Like if I place the numb bit of my crushed finger on a surface lightly, I would barely be able to tell it's touching that surface (No perception of texture). Pain is like a deep in the finger pain, rather than on the surface.
I can't press on the nail, at all (Too painful, but like I said, it's a really deep pain, rather than anything on the surface). In addition, the bottom half of the nail is completely black, and the top half is red with blood spots under the nail. The finger is very hot and swollen... Feels sort of like a blister.
It's hard to describe. The tip hasn't lost any colour.. It's still a fleshy pink, amid blood spots on the skin and a further developping bruise.
Like I said, I don't mind losing the feeling in the finger. Over years, that will return as it has done in my other finger. And there's no open wound for infection to occur... Is there any cause for concern?
