so i went to a walk-in clinic, and the doctor poked a hole through the nail. Right after, blood start gushing out like a geyser, but boy did it feel alot better afterward. Now, my hand is alot more mobile than it was compared to the stiff, bone-cracking feeling i had before. Btw thanks for the advice guys, but i found that ice was of no help at all, it just elevated the level of stiffness. Speaking of which, hot water proved to be a big reliever in increasing the blood flow around my pinky, but even that was of minimal benefit.
