I accidentally stabbed my thumb on the outside (right) side partially on the "pad" of my thumb and to the side on my right hand on 6/14 with a very small knife while in my fiance's car. I think it went relatively deep, but I'm knit entirely sure. I just immediately pulled it out and put my thumb in my mouth for a few moments (Not good, I know) because it began bleeding severely and I couldn't readily access the napkins. It spurted onto my eyelid, the visor, dash, kennel I had on my lap, arms, and shirt. Not sure how it got all over. Anyways, I got it to stop bleeding finally agreed wrapping it in a napkin, but I ended up swallowing quite a bit of the blood, at least 2 mouthfuls (lots of bloody noses as a kid, so it didn't bother me). I washed it in cold water before switching tho a bandaid and have been letting it air out off and on. The problem, is the outside (right) side of my thumb above the cut is numb, like when an appendage starts to fall asleep. The upper inside (left side) has no numbness. There is some swelling, what appears and feels to be bruising all over the thumb pad. The cut is understandably rather painful when bothered but not unbearably so. Anyone have some answers? Feel free to ask questions!
