I slipped in the snow yesterday and fell forward. Most of my weight landed on my pinky, which was bent because I was carrying my keys.

Anyway, it still hurts this morning and feels kind of numb. I also can't completely straighten it, almost but not completely. Do you think it could be broken? It hurts most right where my finger joins my hand, esp. whenI try to bend it. I can't bend it as much as my other one but maybe it's swollen.

Even if it is broken, would a doctor do anything for it? Could I splint it myself?
