    I don't know HOW this happened, but I just noticed it yesterday....

    My right hand pinky just bounces down and bounces back up when I try to bend it. I have no control over it. It aches and my wrist hurts. The pinky itself will rest sort of on top of my ring finger when I relax it. It just freaked me out now because I thought it was going to fix itself overnight, but I just went to make a fist and it felt weird! When I bend it, you can see an extra lump on my joint that you don't see on the other hand. I don't know HOW - but I'm pretty sure I dislocated it.

    What kind of a doctor do I see for this? It's starting to hurt more. I've been crocheting a bit and I think it made it worse.

    Unless you did something traumatic to injure it, you could have Rhuematoid Arthritis​

    Rhuematoid Arthritis?! I just turned 30.

    I think I may need an x-ray. Argh.
