jammed knuckle?

I hit my hand reaching for the seat belt and it was like I punched the metal door and I think I messed up my ring and pinky finger knuckle, the one closest to the hand. The pain set in 3 days after the hit and it hurts bad. not much swelling but some, it is a sharp pain that goes up the hand top and bottom and into the wrist.

Silicone inserts leave the epicondyle pressure-free and provide an intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
