broken thumb?
yesterday I was playing basketball and i went to go and catch the ball and it hit my thumb and i instantly felt pain. I have had surgery on this thumb before. so anyways it hurt really bad and it was swollen and i couldnt move it and it is my joint. it hurts to write and stuff like that. So i was saying to myself it was just jammed and i will give it some time so i went to ben and all night it had a heart beat and it felt like my thumb was going to explode. It is still swollen and stuff like that but i dont know if it is broken or not. And should i see a doctor and what kind of treatment would they do if broken.

Hello!

I would suggest you to take NSAIDs for pain relief and for decrease of inflammation. Apply ice packs and if the symptoms persist after couple of days then go for an X-ray thumb.

Follow up with an orthopedician.

Take care!
