Swelling in fingers, arm pain, purple discolouration, movement and feeling present in arm. Treatment?

Hi, Im a 27 yr old female. I beat up my ex for something he deserved a beating for. Among other things i punched him in the head over 20 times swelling my fingers and whole hand in minutes. This happened 2 days ago and now my whole arm hurts and swelled as well. The hand swelling went down a bit but its all purple. I got movement and feeling not sure if i should seek medical care.

Thanks for writing in.

It looks like you were really upset and this led you to beating someone including punching 20 times. It is scary and I just hope it doesnt happen again.

Please take a consultation from an orthopedician to make sure you havent broken any of the small bones in your hand. A x ray will rule out any possible injuries.

Some of the fracture in the hand bones are clinically not reported as the swelling and pain is not much.

Hope this helps.
