in my right ring finger a football was hit against it dead on and then it straightened. i tied it to my middle finger thinking that the paint was just bruising or something because this has happened before but now a year later my first knuckle on my right ring finger hurt when i push down on my second knuckle closer to the palm. (the first knuckle is the second from the finger tip and the second knuckle is the closest to the end)

Hi Dominic,

I’m not sure what your question is here but from your description of the injury I would advise you to go and see your GP, get an x-ray and perhaps get referred to an orthopedic specialist.



The finger joints of my hand are painful and most of the fingers are triggering. It has been difficult for me to use my hand/fingures to catch or pull anything it hurts alot. I am not sure if you can help me with my problem. Can You please suggest me. Thanks
