Okay, a bit of background info since I never posted about this last Monday when it happened. (typing this is very hard without using said finger, so forgivr any errors I miss lol) As well as any wrong groups. It's real hard being down a pointer finger on your right hand lol.
Last Monday I was at a friend's. She was headed out so I accepted a ride home. She had mentioned something and I with the car door opened turned to look. Well, in that second the car door fell on my finger and smashed it. It hurt quite a bit and stung and throbbed for hoursafter. I slept off the worst of the pain. The underside of the finger bruised a lot, it swelled up a lot and the nail bruised too.
A week later to the day it's still swollen. Still bruised and now numb where the worst bruising was. There's still some mild pain (Which is why I've not been around much - finger out of comission makes it all much harder to do)
I'm beginning to wonder if I should be concerned over the swelling and numbness on the one side. I can move and bend it okay but there's a limit to that a bit due to swelling. It's of course lucky me on my primary hand - the right hand, lol.
I've of course had to use it so I'm suer that's not helping the healing process. *sigh*
Some poor photos shot with my left hand lol
Underside - bruise did clear - it was real dark and big, but that area is now numb and a bit painful in some situations.
The bruised nail.
Side view with a normal finger to see swelling.

And wouldn't it figure that it's my typing, clicking and photo taking finger. UGH! I'm wondering... should I be worried about it or just be patient as it heals on it's own?
