On Sunday, whilst watching TV (!) 10 year old DD did something to her finger. She said it made a weird noise and has been really sore ever since (she was crying in pain).
We took her to the pharmacist on Monday who said to rest it and give her calpol, which we have. But tonight its as sore as ever and she can hardly move it. But its not swollen, or red or anything.
Am tempted to take her to the doctors tomorrow, but don't know if there is anything they can do. Anyone have any ideas?

Is it possible to trap a nerve in a finger? I'm guessing that would be sore and not outwardly visible. I'd make a GP appointment if it's still the same tomorrow.
