In brief: Get an x ray

It is very possible that you have fractured a finger. You need medical attention with x rays to determine the level of injury

In brief: Go to ED

or your doctor for x-rays.
Sounds like a fracture. It could be serious, especially if skin is broken and if this is your major hand.
