Common Questions and Answers about Finger joint bruise

finger

The top joint of my husband's finger has turned black and it looks like a bruise. Could this be a blood vessel has burst ?
noticed inside of my right index finger purplish between tip and joint line did feel pain and like vibration feelings now 30 min. later it doesn't but is still discolored. is this a ruptured blood vessel?
You could have injured interphalangeal joint of your finger. The multiple joint involvement could also be due to infection or due to reactive arthritis. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
I ran 10 miles yesterday in regular tights without any tape and found 3 small bruises (finger point-sized) along the medial joint line last night. My knee is stiff and painful today underneath the knee cap where the pes anserine tendon inserts and to the inside of the knee cap (medially). I also have pain in the middle of the back of the knee, is especially sharp if I push into it.
When I wiggle the nail, it seems its not connected to the joint. I can see a slight bruise near the joint on the inside of my hand. I positioned my finger and wrapped a band-aid tightly around it to hold it in place. Otherwise, my nail seems to be tilting inward towards the joint. It only hurt if I try to use that finger i.e. when typing. Could it be broken, or have I torn the ligaments and should I go to the doctor or keep it tightly wrapped for a week, etc.
Hi-- I hit the outside edge between knuckle and first joint of my pinky finger against a hard object about a month ago. (I tried to vigorously shoo my dog out of the kitchen and whacked my hand on the tile counter) It was painful but never showed obvious (to me) sign of breakage. I had inflammation, pain, a small amount of bruising (I don't bruise easily) and it as been tender to the touch ever since.
Hi All, I also have that problem with my right hand, only on the middle finger, also from the middle joint to the tip. It only lasts for maybe 5 minutes or so. I recently got a job ( in April) where I work on the computer for 8 or so hours per day. Do you think that could be a contributing factor?? Any help appreciated..

Now some seven to eight hours later it appears more like a bruise and on the side of my finger it is a deep red color. Any ideas what is going on?
and I am desperately trying to figure out why I continue to break out in hives and have joint pain in my elbows, feet, hands and legs. I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip to the ER, it was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative.
Noticed another bruise on my finger this morning - on underside of middle finger at the joint near the end of the finger (left hand). Had not injured the finger, no pain or stinging like a blood vessel had burst; what can cause this? Had a bruise that had a knot in it on the ring finger on right hand a few weeks back...again this bruise showed up - on the palm side, at the joint near the palm - without pain, although touching the knot would hurt.
However, it is still incredibly stiff and I cannot completely curl the finger to make a tight fist and a lump has developed towards the right hand side of the joint closest to the tip of the finger. It appears solid, and is a little painful in this area if pressed, or when the finger is flexed. Is this something I should get checked out with the doctor? Or is it most likely all muscular and will heal over time? I feel silly going to the doctor about it, if it just needs time.
about 6 months ago i started to experience pain in my right hand around the middle knuckle- but more the area between the pointer and middle finger from the base of the finger to the middle of the top of my hand. its often swollen and i noticed a bruise on the top of my hand in that area today. i had an xray when the pain started and they saw nothing.
I wanted to add that the more I think about this the more it makes me think it is the same issue I am having with the joint at base of thumbs. They flare up and send shooting pains into my hand as well as just ache. Had Xrays and there was some arthritis present but not much. I also have what I consider to be bursitis in random joints that comes and goes but is painful to press on many bursa or places where large tendons connect like in hip or knee or ball of foot.

At first I thought it was just a bruise, but I had no idea where I would have gotten a bruise like that while I was sleeping. It hasn't changed colors like a bruise usually does, and that's what made me look for other things. I am a 24 year old female, and I am overweight.
I was rear-ended in Sept 2010 and ended up with whiplash, headaches etc as well as a big bruise on my left elbow from impact with my car armrest. sometime at the end of Nov I noticed a tingling in my left pinky and ring finger and now it is March 2011 and my left hand has atrophied to the point where my hand is really weak and noticeably smaller, and my pinky wants to claw. I am seeing a neurologist who did an EMG and said the problem originates at my elbow not my spine.
About an hour ago I noticed that there is a smallish area in the webbing of my thumb and 1st finger that is starting to bruise. Also from the thumb joint almost to my wrist on the palm of my hand is starting to bruise and seems a bit swollen. Have you guys ever had something like this happen? In other news, my new exercise routine is going well! I have taken 200 mg of gabapentin during the day on 2 days.
Hard painful lum noted on top left hand below wrist and in line with index and middle finger. Very painful when bumped and with flexion. Pain with burning, throbbing to wrist, hand, and fingers as well. Same bump on right hand but not painful at present. Bump is firm and feels like bone. Any thoughts what it could be?
hello! about two weeks ago my left index finger started to hurt. the pain starts in the inner side of middle joint, only when i touch/push on it or move it. there's no significant swelling and no discoloration or bruise. for a week i was taping it, i cut it accidentally and decided to tape it top to bottom. now i took of tape and all (the cut healed) but i still have the pain.
You answered it. Bruise! A bruise can take some time to develop and eventually does develop. The are can become tender and swollen then eventually hut when moved. If you gums star to swell, please consult your doctor!
They're typically between the size of a 1-2p coin and the first joint of the index finger, round or squished (although on the leg, they can be much larger), and never painful. I wouldn't call these accident bruises, cos I tend to remember my ridiculous accidents, and even if you walk into a table, those suckers hurt, which these don't. Given how accident prone I am, I still don't GET 'random bruises'. I remember. I bruise easily.
I did notice that it happens at work mostly when pushing an aluminum cart and my key yesterday just grazed the joint of middle finger. It swelled then turned blue. Thanks.
Within a few weeks she had been to her primary doc and been sent immediately to the ortho surgeon. Infection had invaded the joint at the middle of her index finger. The bone had already been completely destroyed. Her first surgery removed the joint and surrounding infection. She took antibiotics and wore a splint on the painful and useless finger for a couple of months anticipating a joint replacement would be done last spring.

Not knowing the vehicle was behind me, I swung my hang back and punched the car. I punch the middle finger, Hand knuckle. (The ones you see when you make a fist) Anyways, It was horrible pain... I had limited movement and it hurt to make a fist or touch it. But heres the catch, I did'nt go get an xray or anything when it happend. Please dont give me any hate... I didnt want to get surgery because i'm a cheerleader and i didnt want to be out of cheer, so I waited.
In fact, I have noticed when I hit my hand really hard - I have remembered to look for the bruise, and I don't get any bruise then. NONE So I don't think I have a platelet problem. I get the purpura like 1-2 days after taking ibuprofen, tylenol, and ranitidine. So I stopped taking them. So I have noticed that if I walk for exercise, I get the purpura. I was pulling weeds on Thursday and Friday, and Saturday, and had a purpura show up on my finger on Saturday.
Recently though, I had one break in my palm under the thumb joint and it turned to a bruise. I work in a nursing home and most of the nurses there have never heard of it. I don't take any meds and have low blood pressure. I do crochet though....???? I always thought it happened to everyone.
Exactly the same issue; darkening on skin on back of hand, just the first finger joint and some of the webbing between thumb and hand. Looks like a deep tan, but doesn't seem to fade. Not raised. Does not itch or hurt. The effect is not present under my ring, as if it were a tan.
