When I broke my finger, I had numbness, swelling, and sharp pain. Unfortunately, there wasn't much that could be done about it.

I think I broke my finger 2 days ago after I fell while carrying a plant. My hand was crushed against a rock wall, and now I have pain, swelling and the (pinky) finger won't bend normally nor straighten, and it is kind of at a wrong angle. It doesn't look nor feel right. I would go get it checked but we have icy roads...

Shooting pain and immediate bruising with my broken finger and swelling of the knuckle above it. There is a dip in the bone at the reddened site of the blow to the hand.
