Have Parkinson's disease. Fell on right hand. Swollen, purple. Whiteness in fingers. Suggestions?

I have Parkinson s and took a bad fall on my right side. My right arm took the brunt of the force. My hand swelled tremendously and was red and purple. Tonite my hand is brown except the ends of my fingers are white. There is almost a line where the brown starts and white stops as though I struck my fingers in white paint? I have never seen anything like this?

Neurologist 's  Response

Thanks for the query,

I understand your problem

You need medical evaluation to see the condition of your arm/hand if this injury has compromised any of the local blood vessel or nerves. I urge you to go to a local physician at the earliest to resolve this issue. A physical examination will clarify the situation better.

Hope this clarifies
Best wishes
