I'm hoping someone might know something about this. I have started getting this weird symptom, and cannot find anything about it on the web. Three times in the last week, I suddenly get an intense pain on the palm side of my middle finger, directly on the middle joint, palm side that lasts approximately 10-15 minutes. During this time a dark bruise appears, but I haven't bumped or banged my hand at all. The bruising sometimes goes away with the pain, or it can last a couple of days. Has anyone heard of this? Thanks very much for any help you can give me.

  • Sounds like something called Achenbach Syndrome ... nothing to be too concerned about.
