Finally, your Gp has done it!! Well done Claire.
I found that after i subluxed fingers they are better taped for a few days, otherwise I kept knocking them and putting too much strain on them. You could try taping them for a while to see if it does give you relieve but dont tape to tightly, just enough to give support and to remind you to be careful of them.
Can you feel anything out of place?
If it is really unbearable you can go back to A/E and say that the pain is really awful. They have to see you.
Have you tried heat...I love heat!! It must be hard to see to your little one when your hand is feeling like that.
BUT AT LEAST HE FINALLY GAVE YOU THE REFERRAL!!! YIPPEE!!!
Will PM you later to see how you are going.
PS I would insert one of those smiley faces but dont know how!!!
