I have recently slammed my finger in between a piece

I have recently slammed my finger in between a piece of wood and a piece of metal. I put full force down on the metal bar not realizing my finger was underneath, and i now have a big blood blister right above my nail. I am experiencing total numbness in my finger and i am worried about it, not to mention i can’t bind my finger what so ever.

I slammed my left index finger between the 1st knuckle and cuticle Thursday AM while trying to close a sticky window. I ve iced it many times but it s still sensitive, swollen and the nail is 1/3rd black and blue. My question is what are the risks of a clot and it moving. Should I just ride it out, put a pin hole in the cuticle to release the pressure or seek professional medical attention? Thanks, Jeff.

I was working on my grandmothers ranch when as I was getting out of the truck the wind caught the door and slammed it in my hand . Right behind my knuckles, there s a protruding bruise between the knuckles for my index and middle finger . But my pinky finger hurts between my first joint all the way to the knuckle, I try not to bend it but forget sometimes. I can move the rest of my fingers just fine without pain, there s only pain in my pinky fingers, and some slight throbbing... It has been about half an hour since my hand was slammed in the door.
