    Did you do anything to injure the hand cheesymac417? Was there some trauma that caused a sudden change or is this something that has been there for a while?

    This has been handled nicely by other posters and is pretty much an anatomical fact, as demonstrated by TEM.


    If i apply pressure on my fist by lets say doing a knuckle pushup, I feel as if my "distal inter-phalangeal joints" (basically the first joint if you go from finger tip to the base of finger of my index and middle fingers) are being crushed. And, strangely a fist made in my left hand is fine... Maybe my fingers are just too long for my hand. Oh and thanks to anyone who cared to read my whole supplication. :mblah05:
    Are you naturally right handed?

    If so, your right hand will be better conditioned as being the appendage of choice, however this makes for a double-edged sword as this is the hand which will also suffer the most trauma from usage. Jammed or broken fingers, stressed or swollen joints, CTS in the wrist.....all thses things which don't or can't be treated and build up over time.

    Causing you to alter how you do things to avoid pain or discomfort. This adaptation will quite likely place undue stress on the surrounding areas.

    As Hogfather halfway pointed out, I think the real issue is that the OP HAS SIX FINGERS.

    I think some light cases of Marfan Syndrome result in only elongated fingers; however I seriously doubt you wouldn't have had a doctor notice this.

    Stop doing knuckle pushups on hard surfaces and maybe the problem will self-correct.

    Thanks for the responses guys. Hm, I have not injured my knuckles/ hands in any way so I guess that can't be the reason. Oh and I know that the index and middle fingers are naturally larger but the proportions of their sizes in my right hand when rolled into a fist are much greater than that in my left hand(which makes a natural slant with the first two fingers largest.) In my right hand it's just a steep elevation from the ring finger to the middle when in a fist. When I train boxing with gloves and handwraps I don't notice a thing... it's only when I'm bare-knuckled that it becomes annoying.

    Are you naturally right handed?

    Have you ever noticed how farmers or mechanics or guys who do lots of manual labor with their hands seem to have disproportionally large hands?

    It's the same way with your dominant hand. It gets most of the usage and most of the punishment.
