I was cutting up with my grandson last night flicking water at him and thought I pulled my middle knuckle out of joint - WRONG.
The pain was horrible.
Only thing I could do was hit up the emergency room. My husband was a dear - he took me and sat there for the 3 hours it took for them to tell me it was a pulled ligament and put it in a splint with a referral to see an orthapedic.
So today I went to the orthapedic. I have a ruptured tendon. They custom made the brace and I can't take it off for 6 weeks. Six weeks - I have so much to do. Hopefully I will learn how to adapt
So a lesson from me to you - DON'T FLICK.
The Dr said this happens more than you would think.
