Using scissors to cut cardboard for a lengthy period of time has left my thumb tingling and numb. I did this over a month ago and it's getting worse.

A friend bent my son's pinky finger and it popped. It swelled and is very painful. It happened in the middle of the day at school. No ice has been applied. He said the swelling has gone down significantly; it looks like a pyramid from the bottom to the tip.
