I put my son in the playpen today and he kept trying to get out, I went over and was going to catch his foot but he moved too quick for me and I ended up hitting it on the top bar of the playpen. It instantly swelled up and turned black and blue. It also sent shooting/stabbing pains through my whole hand. I have broken a finger before but not near the knuckle. Right now its swollen to the point where I can not bend it. I have been icing it for about an hour now and its not helping any at all. I feel nothing but pressure and pain in my thumb when I do try to bend it. So what I'm wanting to know is did I brake it or just really badly bruise the knuckle?
