A couple of weeks ago, we were driving to church and my finger started hurting really badly and then I had a huge purple bruise on it...the under side of my pointer finger, right at the jointor been. I figured I must have hit it somewhere or been stung and not known it?? Last week, same thing on my under side of my middle finger and I still blew it off figuring I must have hit it and not known. Yesterday, I was teaching a class for our homeschool group and the same thing happened on my thumb WHILE I was standing up there teaching. I know I didn't hit it. Big Daddy said that it sounded like a blood vessel burst. I looked it up and that sounds exactly like what it is doing. It hurts almost like a bee sting or something - a sharp small pain that aches for a bit and then an ugly bruise pops up. Googling "blood vessel burst fingers" brought up several pages of people that have this happen and doctors don't know why. It is really odd. I emailed my mom and sisters and my mom said that it happens to her too but she also assumed she was hitting it and just not remembering. Weird, huh?
Has this happened to you? Have you talked to a dr about it? I will discuss it at my next check up but unless it gets worse, I'll not make a separate appt for it, probably. I need to research it some more too but thought I'd throw it into the blog world to see if anyone else deals with this that I know.
