Swollen finger for weeks! Not sure why!
Hi! This is my first post here!
Around 3 weeks ago I 'smacked' my fingers against a table on accident. It hurt only for a few seconds....I've probably done this a hundred times in my life! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> But this time I woke up the next day with a fat swollen index finger....I wasn't *sure* what caused it, I still don't, the only thing I could think of was when I hit my fingers the day before, but it didn't seem likely BECAUSE I've done that before, and I've never had them swell like this, PLUS it wasn't THAT painful when I hit them and there was no bruise!
Now, it's been around 3 weeks now, it was just starting to go away, then a few days ago my finger swelled up again, now, I can't even bend it, it's too swollen! It's not really painful, just an annoying feeling.
Any guess what could've cause a 'sudden swelling' of my finger? And, why is it STILL swollen after weeks!? Should I be concerned? There aren't any bruises and I'm 100% sure it isn't broken or anything!
THANKS ALOT FOR READING!
