Think I broke my middle finger 3 weeks ago. I still can't straighten it and still painful. What should I do?

In brief: Be seen

If you can't straighten it 3 weeks you should have it checked out.
If it is broken and not set right, it can heal crooked which would be a serious problem as your grip and strength can be affected. A bad sprain can do this too, but usually after three weeks, it should be better if it s not a serious problem.
