In brief: Pain, swelling, loss

Of motion, deviation, rotation, stiffness, throbbing, numbness, discoloration, tightness all can be symptoms of a finger fracture.
If one suspects a fracture, then elevation, ice , splinting and urgent evaluation is needed as many seemingly simple fractures in the hand require a detailed understanding of what to do to optimize healing and return of function.

In brief: Yes

A common misconception is that you won't be able to move a broken finger. That is not always the case.
If you are at all concerned, see a hand specialist as soon as possible. Good luck.
