I had originally posted this is the wrong forum...so here it is...

Ive never had any tendon or pulley problems...however recently Ive noticed that my middle finger is super sore along the top and bottom. I dont feel any loss of strength, however i do have some discomfort while applying downward pressure with it, no pain pushing up. Not much if any discomfort while not using the finger. No throbbing, no dull pain, nothing. Honestly it feels like its bruised or i smashed it with a hammer. I understand no one can diagnose via the internet, im just wondering if those who have had finger injuries could let me know if this sounds familiar? I would think if i had a major pulley injury i would have some serious pain while trying to crimp? Maybe its the beginning of something?

Rest, ice, ibuprofen. Lay off of it for a week. If it still hurts after that, go see a doctor.

I might have recommended elevation too, but that could get you into some trouble...

Its definitely a job related injury and sounds very serious I would go see a doctor asap before you start the project it will not get better until you see the doc and they figure out what's wrong. I heard there is a test called pet scan. Definitely ask your doctor to run that. Don't jeopardize your job go see a doctor. Elena Sera Jose

Suit yourself just don't run out of time before the project. Good luck man. Btw I would still climb though just tape two fingers together that should be good. It should help it heal actually.

Ive never been a big fan of stopping all activity. I truly believe that climbing helped my spine problems by stabilizing it again. I guess I'll just take it easy. Maybe go to the gunks this weekend and do a bunch of easy 5.5-6 trad if its nice out. Im certainly going to tape it up though. Should I really buddy tape it? Or focus on taping the actual area where im experiencing pain? Ive never had a finger injury and been climbing for over 15 years cms829

Should I leave it free during the day? My 9-5 job is desk work. I do masonry evenings and weekends. Or should i just tape it while climbing? I cant really tape it while laying block as I have to wear gloves. The block is so sharp it rips my fingers apart. cms829
