Thanks for your query.You hit your hand on the edge of the table and fainted for couple of minutes This is due to what is called as Vaso Vagal Shock (Neurogenic Shock) It is nothing abnormal and one gets it whenever there is severe pain any where in the body due to injury.However it is transient and nothing to worry about.As regards the pain that you have in hand take some pain killers that you get over the counter. in medical store
