Hello, about a week and a half ago I punched a hard surface and my right pinkie knuckle became swolen and now creaks when I bend it, but doesnt hurt though.
Hi and thank you so much for this query. I am so sorry to hear about this. Please, stop boxing hard surfaces. With no pains, there is nothing to worry about. If you had a facture, sure pain would have been a constant. I hope this helps. I wish you well and feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
