    I hurt my hand a few weeks ago. It swelled up real nice. Everything felt fine though, I could grab and squeeze a gripper without pain and move it all around. So I obviously took some aspirin and said "it'll go away in a week or so". It went down but it hurts only when I put pressure on it, right around the knuckle (think of punching).

    I thought I might have had a boxers fracture, because from what I read thats what I had. Went to the doctor, got some x-rays done, there's no brake or anything. So what could it be? Yes Im going to see a hand specialist but I just want to hear some common injuries or if anyone else has had something like this.

    My guess is you are a pussy at heart and cannot take a little pain.

    Or your shit is massively fucked up.

    ttt for shared genes.

    could be a few things. A mate of mine had something like that, wasn't a boxers fracture... kept training, hurt it worse. More scans revealed it was tendon damage. 6 month recovery time for that one.

    See what the hand specialist says.

    Ice it, let it heal for a week. Then fight through it. Your tissue will become able to deal with the pain.

    Boxers hands have to go through the same type of "conditioning" as a Muay Thai fighter's shins.

    Got the same thing going on right now, so I can sympathize. Lesson learned: aim for the chin, not the forehead.

    Yea, well I doubt its hand conditioning because its been about 3 weeks. There is something popped up neext to the knuckle though.

    When you make a fist and look at a side view of your fist, your knuckles make bumps, like little mountains I guess. My injured knuckles do not. Just flat and raised in between.

    Well, I'll be calling the doc tomorrow.

    I've had a boxers fracture twice in my right hand and once in my left. I've also had what you have where its just pain and swelling but no fracture. Just ice it, take a week off, try to use your other hand for normal everyday things; twisting a door knob, turning your key, etc. It will heal enough to wear you can deal with the pain.
