Mumsnetters aren't necessarily qualified to help if your child is unwell. If you have any serious medical concerns, we would urge you to consult your GP.
My 16 year old has trapped her thumb in the door , right on her bone. She is complaining of it hurting badly , and of numbness and stiffness . I'm not sure if its worth the long wait in A@E, but don't want to leave it . Thanks .
Can she move it? It doesn't look swollen.
No she can't , and when she does she is in extreme agony and can feel it grinding and clicking . It has gotten more swollen today .
That's in compression to her normal hand to her bad hand .
Have you got a minor injuries near you?
No we don't , we have a A@E near but not sure if it's worth the wait . Since this she hasn't been eating much either , maybe because of shock.
It happened last night and you're still mulling over A&E? Just go! Saturday daytime will be less of a wait than Friday night.
You know her best, trust your gut. If she is in heaps of pain & cant move it, don't worry about going.
Okay thanks for the advice .
How did she get on?
My SS did this looked exactly the same and he fractured the bone between his thumb and hand.No sport for 10 weeks, needed physio and had a pot. Looks the same to me!
