I punched wrong and my index finger really hurts my dad can't be bothers to take me to the hospital is it fractured?

Possibly: It sounds like you had a sufficient mechanism of injury to cause a fracture. If you are having severe pain, I would definitely be seen for an exam and X-ray. Some towns do have urgent care or "walk in" clinics that may be more convenient to your father than the hospital. I would definitely get someone to take you to be seen. Read more

See your doctor: Punching a hard object can cause something called a "Boxer's Fracture", which is a fracture of the bone in between the wrist and the pink finger. Boxer's fracture is diagnosed by a physician and via an Xray and treated a splint or a cast. Read more

Ice and xray: If you did this within 48 hours apply an ice pack (20 min on and 20 min off) if you did this two days ago try moist heat. See a doctor for an xray to rule out fracture of bone and tendon damage...And quit punching walls ;). Read more

See DR: You may have just bruised the hand, or you might have a undisplaced fracture. Only way to tell is with an xray. Next time punch a pillow, it will give you psychological relief without the patin. Read more

2 days ago I started punching things & my middle finger knuckle is bigger than usual & the side is swollen. And it hurts to use my hand. Is it broken?

Possibly: The only way to know for sure is to have it x-rayed. Have it checked out as soon as possible, because if it is broken, you want to make sure it heals correctly. If it heals incorrectly, it could affect the use of your hand in the future. Read more

I punched a wall and my whole hand hurts and I can see some bruising. It hurts to extend my middle finger a lot. What do I do.?

Get it checked: Punching walls can cause fractures of the bones of the hand. The most common one is just below the little finger - called a Boxer's Fracture. I would assume you have a broken bone until your MD clears you. Keep the hand elevated - don't punch anything anymore - and see your doctor or Urgent Care Clinic for exam and possible xray.

My daughter punched a wall and the knuckle is depressed and she has lots of pain! There is swelling and bruising. This is in the pinky finger.

Finger pain: And swelling & bruising. Your daughter needs to get her finger x-rayed to make sure nothing is broken. If it is and it heals out of alignment she can have trouble w/it for life. I know we loose our temper, but constructive anger vs. Distructive anger is what we need to choose to work toward. Peace and good health. Read more
