did i break my knuckle or not (pictures)?
i punched a wall last night (a little less than 24 hours ago), stupid decision. i know. it's still swollen and bruised, i've never broken anything before so i have no idea how serious it really could be, if at all. so here's pictures...i'd really appreciate some advice. i have no idea whether i should go to the doctors or not.

the only way to diagnose a break or a sprain is by a x-ray..a clue is if you can bend finger.

alright, that's what i figured. i can move all my fingers but my middle knuckle feels really tight when i put my hand in a fist. and it hurts really bad when anything hits it...so if i broke anything i'm guessing it would be a knuckle. thank you.

Please get an xray and a physician to assess it; my recommendations.  Even if it is not broke there might be damage.
