Boxers Fracture: You have likely fractured the head of your 5th metacarpal neck with possible displacement and angulation. Do not use your hand, protect it and visit an Orthopaedic Surgeon in clinic. You need x-rays and splinting until an ortho has a chance to schedule you for a closed reduction of the fracture (putting it back in place) and then percutaneous pinning, casting, or in some cases operative fixation. ...Read more

Arthritis: of first carpometacarpal joint is one of the most common causes of this, especially if you use the hand for work or have a known injury. Get a good thumb splint and apply heat and use Tylenol or topical Diclofenac. Good luck. An x-ray would establish the diagnosis, but it is a difficult problem to treat. Good luck! ...Read more
Can you twist or change position of forehead or facial features/face with hands? Someone twisted top of my head around forehead with hands & paranoid
Yes, but...: As soon as the hands go away, the face pops back into its original shape. Kids do this all the time... it's fun. For older kids and adults, if there is facial distortion due to actitivities like martial arts classes, the face returns to its normal shape after any swelling or bruising resolves... but recurrent or severe sports injuries can lead to permanent changes. ...Read more

I hit my hand. Extreme pain and swelling.I can move fingers and thumb.Swelling went down a little. Mostly between thumb & index finger. On top of hand?
Xray time: With the amount of pain and swelling you describe, it sounds to me like you need an xray. Some of your carpal and metacarpal bones, if broken, need to be addressed sooner rather than later to make sure they heal properly. So, you can ice and elevate it now, but i would have it checked out pretty soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I spiral fx'd my ring finger and just had two kwires removed. When closing hand to a fist, ring finger rotates under middle finger. Is this right?

Poked myself in temple with knuckle hurt abit four days later rested temple on hand knuckle pressed into temple and felt pain now it hurts to touch?
Left hand middle finger tight with stiffness. Can't bend it. Swollen @ the joint & palm. No pain, just uncomfortable.
No injury?: Assuming you haven't injured that finger somehow (sometimes it is hard to remember...might have seemed like nothing at the time)... I'm thinking things that aren't exactly "serious", but that doesn't mean it doesn't hurt! Possibly tendinitis in that finger, or a bit of arthritis in the joint. Try using an ice pack, and reducing movement, maybe w/ a splint. If it continues, I would get an x-ray. ...Read more
