    Where's wicked when I need her? Is there anything to even do about a broken knuckle? Or do you just suck it up and wait for it to heal?

    wicked? I need some professional advice here.

    Right hand middle knuckle............it's a sight to behold. 3X it's usual size, and a bloody mess. No way to take pictures though. I can still move my fingers, so I'm uncertain if it's broken or just a little fucked up. :dontknow:

    My desk. I got really, really angry - and slammed my fist onto my desk........or attempted to. I instead caught the edge of the desk. Frigging bled like a stuck pig for a good half hour or so.

    If you're moving your fingers more than likely it isn't broken. You can get a splint from your local pharmacy or make your own. Set it for the night, keep it elevated above your heart if possible and see how it feels tomorrow.

    I can move them all..........just hurts to do. WTF would a splint do for me? I can suck up the pain, I was just wondering if there's actually anything you should do about a broken knuckle, if it's actually broken.

    probably not broken from that type of trauma, but there's no way to tell for sure without an x-ray. Very rarely do knuckle fractures need any surgery. If broken it would only
    be splinted. I suggest you put ice on and off for 20 minutes at a time and ibuprofen for pain which will also help with swelling.
    gotta go, woman in labor just strolled in... I'll check back

    :mad: I am NOT crazy. I am slightly unbalanced with anger issues.

    If motherfucking people stop fucking with my life, I'd almost be stable.
