I know its a case of "how long is a bit of string" but im looking for a rough idea of time or advice. 1) Twisted the middle finger on my hand when it got trapped in between the mats in MMA. Twisted both knuckles perpendicular to the natrual way they move, hurt like hell and the entire finger swelled up big time. This was about 3 months ago and the middle knuckle is still slightly swollen and is quite painful and stiff from time to time. 2) Went over on my left ankle while running a month ago, walked it off for 10min and kept running fine (though hurt like a barsteward for a little while later in the day) and is still ok to run on. However if i keep my feet facing straight ahead and twist my pelvis 90deg to the left the outside of the foot under the knuckle joint thing hurts and is slightly swollen. I know its best to go see the doc and all that, but just checking first incase it is as i think only a minor thing.
