There is no visible bruising and also no swelling. For the first minute or two, I couldn't move it and my pinky was more comfortable being bent then being straight. I also hit my ring finger but there's no pain in it. It also felt like it was irritated. If I touch it or something touches it, it hurts. Every once in a while if I snap then my pinky will hurt and I also get small cramps. I hit it full on, on a door knob pretty hard.
