14 yr old daughter complaining of extreme pain in finger
My 14 yr old daughter is complaining of extreme pain in her middle finger around the first joint, She is in agony and tears I don't know what to do. This has been going on now for about 30 minutes and she is unconsolable. I have never seen anything like this in my life. I gave her an Aleve and she tried ice and cold water *also we tried hot water* and that hasn't helped I am having her hold it now under warm water. This is too weird for words, the finger is not bent or anything like a trigger finger issue. She is complaining also that she has no feeling in that part of her finger, now she is complaining her hold hand is hurting like crazy, from about the base of the fingers up.
She plays guitar a lot and I wonder if this is some sort of reaction to her guitar playing? I am tempted to just get her to the emergency room however I have no insurance and no money so I am clueless. She is now saying that her hand feels like it is boiling. THanks for any advice. She did not do anything to the finger she was just sitting in her room and all of a sudden started to freak out with pain. What in the world could cause such a thing?
