For the past 3 years on and off I have sustained a large amount of damamge to my right hand from punching things. I haven't been to the doctors about it until recently. Today I had an x ray of my hand and the person that conducted the x ray said he would have to check with a doctor if there was a fracture and if there was then I would need a second x ray. He confirmed that there was not a fracture and my results would go back to my gp. I'm just wondering if the knuckle isn't fractured or broken then what else could be happening? Could they have missed the fracture or it had possibly healed wrong?
