Bruising is a condition in which blood collection occurs in certain body parts due to rupture of peripheral blood vessels, due to collisions, trauma or inflammation. This rupture of blood vessels can occur in any part of the body, depending on the point of trauma or the cause of this bruise. In addition to the skin appearing reddish or bluish, other comorbid complaints can also follow, such as pain, swelling, injury, disruption of muscle movement or disturbed angle of motion of the muscles.
Some of the conditions below can cause bruising complaints, such as:
Impact with blunt objects
Excessive physical fatigue
Blood clotting disorders
Side effects of medical procedures
The use of certain drugs
In connection with your question, there is a complaint of pain that radiates from fingers to elbows and this complaint feels penetrated to your shoulder area and this happens after a bruise due to a collision with a nail, the likelihood that you are feeling right now is caused by the muscle tension in the inflammation or bruised area You experienced before. When there is a collision in the area of the elbow and it causes wasting, then this incident may have caused inflammation and stiffness of the muscles or tendons in the area around your elbow. Because a muscle or tendon is injured or tense, the related muscle and the area it moves such as the area along the injured muscle line can also experience inflammation or complaints of pain when moving or lifting objects. This can be triggered by the recovery period of inflammation and muscle tension which trauma has not been relaxed since the beginning of the trauma, so that the recovery period of pain is longer.
While your shoulder or neck is painful, it is likely caused by the effect of sudden muscle pulling during trauma, so that the muscles in your shoulder area experience tension too.
However, all this is a picture of the possibility of the injury process and the possible effects that occur from the complaint you feel. So you still need a direct examination to your family doctor or neurologist to ensure there are no other conditions that are at risk. The doctor will do a direct examination on the area of impact and the area of pain that you feel. If necessary, blood tests and X-ray examinations can be planned to ascertain the cause of this complaint.
For now, you can stretch your muscles around your shoulders to your finger area. Give a warm compress to help the recovery period.
