Finger joint bruising

Common Questions and Answers about Finger joint bruising


I was diagnosed with an avulsion fracture of the PIP joint on the middle finger (less than 30%) with a lot of bruising. After 2.5 weeks of straight buddy splinting to the ring finger I was advised by my family physician to remove the splint and move the finger. It is very stiff and the joint swelling has not subsided. The joint seems to swell more with movement and turns red. The finger is straight. How long does the swelling and redness remain?
I recently shook hands and immediately felt pain as if a tendon or a ligament ruptured under the mid knuckle/joint on my right middle finger. It was a broad pain with noticeable swelling. Now when I shake hands or grasp something tightly like a handle the same pain occurs. Also, now on that same finger but on the right side there is a small pea sized bump or nodule. If I close my fingers tightly it produces an acute sharp, stabbing, burning pain as if be stuck with a hot needle.
Does anyone have trigger finger? I have it in the right thumb. I don't know if it is related to my hepatitis C. What did you do to help it? I'm 64 years old and hypothyroid.
, We had mentioned to you that there would be stiffness after the fracture healing. Stiffness will also occur in a normal joint due to immobilization of fingers. Continue finger exercises by making a fist and slowly stretching your fingers completely. After a week of this Physiotherapy you would be fine. Go for a routine examination near your treating Orthopaedician to confirm that the healing is perfect. Take care!
Yesterday I fell while hiking and broke my finger (right hand ring finger) Went to the ER got an x-ray that showed the break in-between the knuckle and the last joint on the finger. They gave me a referal to an ortho but he is out of town for a couple of weeks, so they said to call my Dr to get a referal for an ortho as soon as possible. The finger is severally swollen, bruising bad and I can't move it up or down.
(I'm 15 if it matters) I didn't hit my finger or injure it in any way, but it feels broke. I know it's not though because I can bend it. All of this is happening on my left index finger; -It's hot like when you break a bone. -I can bend it almost all the way until it starts to hurt too bad and I get a pain in the top knuckle even when I don't bend it, the pain is still there. -The pain is spreading down to my bottom knuckle as well, but it's not as painful and sometimes it's not there at all.
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.
Individual joint exercise - hold finger with unaffected hand to isolate the movement of each joint. top joint - hold finger just under the top joint and slowly bend downwards as far as you can. hold for 5 seconds then straighten. Repeat 10 times. Now hold just under the second joint and do the same as above. 2. Table Top to full fist - start with your hand pointing upwards again but this time your fingers should be at 90 degrees laying flat.
The exact location of the injury would be the middle pinkie joint that is right along side the ring finger. This happened two months ago, I haven't been to the hospital yet because this is a common injury in the trade. So far the swelling subsided barely, but there is a small lump on the inside of the pinky. It hurts (9/10) when any pressure is presented. I have decided to buddy tape the finger for the past 2 days. I have to admit there is a lot of discomfort and some pain(3/10).
When you simply tape the 4th and 5th fingers together the bottom joint of the finger is still mobile. I'm assuming that's why the dr. recommended the splint. Also consider that the 4th and 5th fingers are the most mobileof the 4 fingers with respect to the palm moving. For instance when you make a fist the pointer and middle finger bones in the palm stay in about the same place, but the ring and pinky actually wrap toward the thumb.
Trauma Direct injury to the finger is the most common cause of finger pain in children. Typically, there will be signs of bruising, a cut or a scrape that will help you to detect an injury. Other injuries can be more subtle. If a child complains of pain and you cannot see any injury, be sure to look closely. Use a magnifying glass to look for splinters or foreign objects like glass.
Ada, my hands are hurting between the knuckles and the next joint up the finger, and then my hands are hurting "inside"... in the palm area is shooting pains. And my feet just hurt anywhere you can imagine, and in my toes it is stabbing. Ouchie! And the redness is actually not in the joints, but with my strange rash when I get warm- read the post above. How weird! I do like the prep. H idea, it did make me laugh but if it helps that's cool!
it is about 1cm long and protrudes from the inner portion of her pinky slightly above the main joint where the finger bents (not the joint by the nail). it is painless and i went online and searched and searched and i'm pretty sure it is a giant-cell tumor, which is supposed to be benign. my question is, do you think she should get it removed or just let it be. the problem is, it seems to be a pretty invasive procedure and my mom would rather just let it be if it is going to be benign.
However on the inside of this joint (facing the middle finger) it looks bulged or rounded. I traced my finger over it and it is definitely rounded and very hard. I know the joints are naturally a bit roundish on the outside but this is large compared to the ring finger on my right hand. Also looking at it you can see the bulging. I was wondering if this is bone or a bone I was feeling? It is quite painful, that area and the area of the finger that is injured.

A few days ago I partially dislocated my little finger left hand, middle joint. I could see that the bone was sticking upwards and wiggled my finger and felt it click back in. As time progressed my finger became more swollen, bruised, painful. I headed to a walk in clinic that specializes in broken bones, cuts etc. They took xrays, no broken bones. The doctor said I likely had a partial dislocation. They put a splint on and I go back in 10 days. I understand there will be swelling, bruising etc.
It happens to me at least once a year. This month it happened twice to the same joint of the same finger back to back and I am angry about it. Even more furious I am about yet another neglected syndrome of unknown etiology that the same medical professionals do not know how to treat, save for alleviating patients anxiety. I arranged my life around how good it feels for my body to move. Of course I am anxious.
I dislocated my pinky finger 5 weeks ago. From joint to tip was perpendicular to bottom of finger. Was so horrified, I pulled up and put it back in place and iced it, but hurt so badly I went to the ER. X-ray showed no break and they said I did a really good job (straight). Taped it to a splint and told me to ice every 2 hours for 20 minutes and wear splint for 2 days.
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.
Many do not realize that what they think is joint pain may not be caused from within the joint, unless there is physical joint damage or Rheumatoid. Referred pain simply means pain felt in a different area from its true origin. Knee, ankle and shoulder pain is usually from tight muscles (nearby or far) pulling on a joint, so that's where you feel it. Loosening the muscle (if it wont stretch) via acupressure or trigger point release can relieve joint and muscle pain.
When I tried to type at my job, I noticed the joint was stiff. The bruising went away after about 2 weeks, and the stiffness got better. However, I still feel a bit of stiffness in the index finger knuckle, and sometimes, I feel a very mild if it's bruised on the inside. In any case, it's been about 2 months since the game. When will my finger lose the stiffness? And should I tape it up, or splint it? Thank you!
For the past 3 months now I have been having strange symptoms like nausea, dizziness (extreme at times), headache behind the eye and sensitivity to light, joint/muscle aches and stiffness mostly in hands and feet but occassionally like a full body flu-type attack, weakness in wrists, cold feet and hands that feel like they are plunged in ice water whenever I take a hot bath/shower, constant feeling of cold so that I just can't get warm, occasional hot flashes and chills, exhaustion and sleepine
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.
I would also consider a referral to a rheumatologist and hematologist to further look at the joint pain and bruising respectively. I am not aware of coconut oil leading to the symptoms.

for the past two weeks my thumb has been twitching at random times. I had jammed my finger a month and a half ago during volleyball and thought nothing of it. But my joint at the bottom of my thumb hurts when i use it like lifting things or press it against something. I've jammed my fingers pleanty of times and have never had my fingers twitch like this. I can see the tendant move as it moves my thumb. I also know its not broken, cuz there was no bruising or swelling when i had jammed it.
Other differential diagnosis would include carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or gout of first metacarapal-phallengeal joint. Take a second opinion and see. An X-ray of the thumb joint, MRI of thumb and wrist, RA factor, thyroid panel, clinical examination, etc will be required for a confirmed diagnosis. Consult an orthopedic specialist. Take care!
Also the rash under the one finger is being duplicated on the other hand on the same finger in the same pattern as on the first finger to be affected, as well as on other fingers. And I am also experiencing slight joint pain in general all over my body. The bruises under my nails have me pretty freaked out. This has never happened to me or to anyone I know about. I'm a 59 year old post menopausal woman in good health. What does this sound like to you?
Right now the pain is centered most prominently in the middle and ring finger of my right hand (although twinging happens in both hands and wrists), and this morning I rested my chin on the lower part of my middle finger and it came away bruised! I'm freaking out a little bit (understatement) while waiting for my appointment (still a few weeks to go), and I'm hoping some of you here might have some words of advice. I'm only 29 years old and am very active with biking, jogging, hiking, etc...
