Yesterday evening I rubbed my hand against my couch and noticed it was sore. When I looked down I noticed it was swollen and bruised. I iced it last night. Now it is very red and bruised and swollen. I don’t remember hitting it on anything. I was working in my garden yesterday afternoon but I think I would remember if I hit my hand on something hard enough to cause all this bruising. Im scared it’s a blood clot because i can’t explain the bruising.

It's not uncommon at all for people to get bumps and bruises and cuts and scrapes, with no recollection of how it happened. Working in the garden probably did it and you just didn't realize it.

It doesn’t really hurt just a little tender I press it. It’s not hot but it is just sooo bruised and puffy.

I’m just going to go to bed. Hopefully it’s went down when I wake up in the morning.

Bruised knuckles are often caused from blunt trauma to your finger or hand. A hard fall, sports injury, or a fistfight can also cause this injury. This trauma causes your knuckle to swell and bleed under the skin, though there are no broken bones.
In milder cases, a bruised knuckle can take days to heal
