Swollen Finger

While I was trying to sleep (Thursday in the evening) I felt pain/discomfort in my right index finger! I got worried so I switched on the light and looked at my finger... IT WAS SWOLLEN! I was not able to move/bend it easily without going ouch ouch ouch!!!

What happened! I dont remember what led to that! I did not work out, did I hit something? A splinter maybe? hmmm I dont remember :-(

Anyways... I decided to ignore it and slept to wake up in the morning to find some redness in the area.. and I was still in pain.

I went to the ER, the doctor told me that I need to see a specialist because he couldnt really tell what was wrong. He gave me an antibiotic and a pain killer. He noticed the redness and also pointed out that the swollen finger was warmer than my other fingers.

Earlier today... I went to the specialist. He examined it, and sent me for X-Rays and blood tests. My blood pressure was 85/60 (which is kinda normal in my case) but I was so dizzy... when they were drawing blood I almost felt like fainting.. but I didnt *phew!* but the blood was going into the tube so darn slow... I wanted to throw up!! eeeeek!

Tomorrow I go in again for the results and then again in a couple of weeks for the results that they sent abroad! I am sure its nothing, but I dont know why I am stressing over it!

So to feel better about my swollen poor finger I colored my nails LOL!


UPDATE:
*******
My blood test result came out! I dont have rheumatoid! :-D Thats what the doctor was afraid of.. I got another medication though and hmmm I have an appointment in two weeks for the blood test that was sent abroad. YAAAAAY

how would u say that ur blood pressure is normal :p
drink more and have salty diet, that will increase ur blood pressure.
the swollen finger i would say it could be caused by allergic reaction, dont worry about it, the blood test will tell all the story .. dont stress ur self :)
hope u get better soon
