Referred pain.: Referred pain is where pain is in a distant location but projects into another. See pics. Check your wrist, arm, upper arm and even shoulder for tender points. Heat stretch and massage. See your doctor. Think flesh and not nerve first. Simple and innocent.

Why are my child's pinky fingers curved inward?

Why are my child's pinky fingers curved inward?

Simple clinodactaly: When pinky fingers are turned slightly toward the middle of the hand, the term used is clinodactaly. When examined under x-ray, there is an angulation to the middle segment of that finger. It is a benign and potential inheritable process. It occurs in normal people and sometimes in higher frequency with certain syndromes.

What are reasons why your pinky fingers are so short?

What are reasons why your pinky fingers are so short?

Evolution: It is hard to say genetically why the ones with shorter pinkies survived and not the other way around. But going back to species before us, it was that way. Just looking at my hand, I 'd rather have it that way and not the other way as the prehensile activity looks better and it would just look weird, don't you think?

Why does my pinky finger painfully lock whenever I bend it?

? Trigger finger: Several things can cause painful triggering of a finger. The most common is a so called, "trigger" finger where your flexor tendon enlarges and can no longer slide smoothly through a tunnel at the base of your finger. Less common is a snapping extensor tendon or ligament. Try splinting the finger straight for a few weeks, if this does not help get it checked out.

I stabbed my pinky finger and now it really hurts what should I do?

See a hand surgeon: Stabbing a finger can be a potentially worse injury than it seems. There are numerous structures (tendons, nerves, blood vessels, joints and ligaments) all in a very small space. Probably best to see a hand surgeon to assess the injury and also make sure that there is no ongoing infection as that can also be quite painful in the finger.

Clean wound: First of all scrub it clean with a clean/wet/soapy wash cloth. Then rinse well with clean water. Pat the wound dry with a clean wash cloth/gauze/ tissue/ paper towel. Then apply antibiotic ointment or aloe juice or coconut oil as antiseptic. Then place a sterile dressing over the wound till it is healing well. You can use a band aid or sterile gauze, secured by Coban type stretchy tape that only.
