    No visit to the Dr yet but according to the internet I may have "trigger finger" in my middle and ring fingers on left hand. Can't recall what set it off but I assume I got my fingers caught up in a gi at the last tourney. The two fingers have pressure in the middle joint and won't fully close. I wouldn't describe it as painful but if I force the movement it gets shitty.

    This has to be pretty common with BJJ right? Ice, ibuprofen, massage and time? Dr visits are free but I'm a busy man so hoping one of you can just talk me through it so I can get back into beast mode.

    First try pulling the fingers out your ass. If that doesn't work, put them back in and repeat.
