I fell and caught myself but I hit my thumb nail during the fall. The nail didn't break but the thumb itself was swollen and is still not completely healed. This has been more than 6 weeks ago. Initially I was given antibiotics but it didn't cure anything. I feel like it's too late for x-rays plus I no longer have insurance.
