It is not obvious unless you look at my pinkies side by side, but the injured one is slightly swollen throughout the middle bone area. I've been taking ibuprofen. Hopefully I can keep the swelling down for the appointment so it's easier for the ortho to diagnose.

What happened with your finger mattmaxwell? How long until you started to climb and how is it feeling now? Do you climb hard on it?

Minus the injury, I'm feeling stronger than ever and my skin is great right now.It's really really going to suck to not climb... In a couple weeks I'm going to be tempted to splint the pinky up and try to climb a bit (using only thumb and 3 fingers)... Is this a horrible idea?
