What is the difference between a sprained thumb and a broken thumb?
Asked in Health, First Aid, Symptoms
What are symptoms of a broken thumb?
Swelling, pain, lack of total mobility, a feeling of hotness, contusions and discoloration from hematoma. Note that these are also the symptoms of a bad jam or sprain. Broken thumb generally occurs near the junction of the thumb with the hand or the metacarpo-phalangeal joint. So a broken thumb is frequently accompanied with a dislocation or subluxation of this joint. Unless the fracture is unusually severe, and you can see angulation of the extremity, or ends of the broken bone (which is rare), there is no way to tell the thumb is broken without imagery. An xray at least is required to confirm.

How long does a broken thumb stay in a cast?
16 weeks in a cast ! It really depends on how bad the break was. for example i broke my thumb 1 month ago and didnt realise then i broke it again which resulted in me going to the hospital. but i was only put in a cast for a week which suprised me as the Doctor asked me if i was not in alot of pain after seeing how bad the break in my thumb was.

How do you say time in sign language?
One way is to spell it out. For the T, you just put your thumb in between your first and second fingers and then put all of your finger down. For the I, you just put up your pinky. For the M, you put your thumb in between your ring finger and pinky and then put all your fingers down. For E, you just put every finger down other than your thumb and then you simply place your thumb under your fingers but make sure your thumb is still visible. Or see a demonstration of the word time in sign on the link below.
