Well not sure if i have injured my left ring finger, i still have grip i can stretch my finger both forward and backwards with no pain. at the bottom of my ring ringer it feels a bit tender. when i go climbing (in the gym) i always warm up on v0 for about half an hour always open hand not a fan of small crimps, this is whats pi**ed me off the most if i have hurt my self i was always so careful.
I have been climbing 5 months i climb v2-4 problems when im climbing i don't feel like im pushing too hard just in my comfort zone.
all opinions are welcome
Thanks Mike SmileSmile

Be careful, and I hope it feels better soon.

Pain under pressure at the base of the finger is consistent with a pulley injury, and the ring finger is the usual suspect. Does it hurt when you crimp? If so, it's probably a pulley tendon injury.
