In brief: S&S fracture
Pain, swelling, instability, crepitus, rotation, shortening, scissoring of fingers, deformity, etc just to name a few.
However, diagnostic imaging is essential.

In brief: Pain.
Pain is the most common complaint following a fracture injury.
Other signs to look for include, swelling, ecchymosis (bruising), and deformity. Ultimately, x-rays are needed to confirm the diagnosis.
