Why is the tip of my thumb causing me so much pain?
Ever since I cut my nails a few days ago, the tip of my left thumb has been hurting. I woke up this morning to a very swollen, extremely painful, hard to the touch thumb. The pain is worst by the edge of the nail, and it increases if any pressure is put on the thumb, including light touches.Well the pain is confined to the upper segment of the thumb, when I bend it, the pain also increases. What is wrong and what can I do?
