Is my hand sprained? dull pain just above wrist bet. Pinky knuckle and wrist. Minimal/no swelling,full rom w/ only dull pain.punched refrigerator

Have it evaluated

Stringio
Your pain could be as a result of many different things. One would need to do a thorough history and physical exam and possibly some radiology exams to determine the exact cause. Have it evaluated by a professional to see if you have fractured it of if it is just a soft tissue injury such as a contusion or a sprain. You may have injured nerves, blood vesicles, muscles, ligaments or tendons.

Dr. Keith Joe answered:

Hurt my finger while sleeping. Painful when moving it,, and the knuckle doesn't seem to work smoothly. Could it be sprained? Can't afford doctor.

Possibly

Fingers
Not sure what you did during the night, but yes if something happened you could have jammed and thus sprained your finger joint. How long has it bothered you? And cant exactly interpret the knuckle not working right. Definitely can buddy tape the finger to the next: ice, rest, NSAID of choice (motrin/naprosyn etc), and see if that helps.
