  • i jammed my finger about 10 months ago. but it still swollen. what can i do? its also stiff in the morning. why is it not going back to normal?My right hand middle finger looks swollen just like yours, did you figure out whats wrong and how did you fix it?i went to doc, he x-rayed but its not broken or anything, he does not know why its swollen, he told me to take ibuprofen 3 times a day to get rid of swelling. I can not make a fist with my right hand, not so much that it hurts it because it feels jammed.A reply will be appreciated.

Splint and ibuprofen did nothing. Sorry I can't help. Maybe one day it will be normal. I can only hope. I wish you luckHB

  • Hi, Did your finger ever heal?I jammed mine catching a football 2 months ago. Its still very swollen and hard to make a fist just like yours. Have seen my GP and an Ortho both looked at xray with me and see nothing. My chiropractor has been doing ultra sound but I am not sure if thats helping. I do martial arts and this is really messing up my game. Should I keep icing or should I do heat? Any input?Thanks,Chris
