How can you tell if your pinky is broke. I don’t know if it’s jammed or broke. It is swelled up and has a redish purple tint under the middle joint but when you touch it doesn’t hurt. I have pretty good movement witht the finger with a liltle pain. When you squeeze the sides of the knuckle it hurts. What are some ways to keep the pain and swelling down. I have already iced it down for 20 minutes. Help would be much appreciated.
