:rolleyes: What would cause the joint on my finger where it attaches to the hand turn black and blue like I hit it with a hammer? This is the right hand little finger. The next day the same thing happened middle finger left hand. There was no pain, just swelling and discoloration.
The other issue I was having within that 24hr period was left chest pain radiating front to back near shoulder blade. Heart checked out ok.

Any opinions would be appreciated.

  • Hi Mayfe, This happened me once & it was caused by blood vessle bursting under the skin, i actually watched it happening, i felt a tiny ping & looked at my hand & the blood was spreading under my skin forming what looked like a bruise it also swoll a bit, it happened twice, i dont know what caused it & i really dont know if it means anything is underlying, but i can tell u i had no problem with it, it just healed with no drama. Hope this helps ease ur mind but if ur worried go back to ur doctor. Best wishes :)

  • In response to the bruising, I’ve been using this stuff on my kids for a while that’s been working great. They both play soccer so they get cuts and bruises on their legs often, not to mention they’re just generally rough when they play. I was reffered to this stuff called bruiseMD (you can find it through google) by another mother at school. The ingredients are all natural and it works quickly so it’s a great bruise remedy. Hope that helps!
