Hi i have a joint injury
that i have had for three years to middle knuckle joint.Should it get looked at by an orthopedic ? or leave it alone again its been messed up for three years its all thanks to a person puposely (Basicaly a group of Bullies) punching my hand and it was not until i heard a loud pop sound and almost immediatly it turned black is bluish. Every so often it will go cold and turn a purplish bluish color Has any one have any ideas? it soem times will swell up for no reason at all and turns a purple blusih blacxkish color
If the symptoms are recurrent despite being a previous injury, it might be worthwhile getting it examined by an orthopedician to evaluate for injuries to ligaments/ tendons, joint dislocation etc.
Hope this is helpful.
