sprained finger not better

Morning Dr

About 12 days back I hurted my left ringfinger. I do contact sport, and this guy kicked my hand during training. It swole up immediately and I couldn't bend it. Two days later I went for x-rays and it showed that nothing was broken. The dr buddy taped my finger and told me I must take it off in 5 days and start moving my finger. I did that, but couldn't move my finger. And still can't. It is still swollen and blue. If I try to bend it, the skin pulls very tight and the pain is terrible. I sit a lot and try to bend it, but later my whole hand is sore. I keep rubbing anti-inflamatory gel on my finger. Sometimes it burns up. I've taken a lot of Brufen, but my stomach doesn't like that.

Please, I'll try anything!! Thank you for your time!!!
