Hurt thumb

I hurt my thumb around 7 months ago now playing football (soccer). I went to dive down for the ball and landed awkwardly on my thumb which created a huge burning sensation in my thumb, and increased swelling of the area. To this day, my thumb is still not the same shape as the other thumb. However it is often that it is just an overreaction, but I don't think 7 months is the case? It is easily reaggravated if It is hit awkwardly and the same burning sensation comes back. Have I done anything?

Thanks :)

Sprains and strains can take a long time to heal (6 months or so). That said, have you seen your GP/HCP about your thumb?


No I haven't because I don't want to be waiting around for hours to find out they can't do anything. Plus, I have GCSEs coming up so I would rather wait until they're out of the way unless I knew it was serious
