Last week, I fell and jammed my thumb into the floor. It instantly hurt and I knew I had sprained or jammed something. The next day, my palm and the thumb muscle were swollen with a painful lump. I could not grab or hold anything, but I can move it around. So, I know it did not break. It has almost been a week and is still very sore. There is no pain in the knuckle and I still cannot hold heavy things and grab things. On bending it is very painful. I wanted to give it some time before seeing a doctor if it is just a mild sprain. Typing and working is very difficult, so I was wondering if seeing a doctor would help or if it is just going to take time?
