I hate it when that happens! It always happens to me when I spin rifle. I would recommend you stay off of it as much as you can so it can heal on its own. Don't spin if you don't have to. In a few days it may be a little better for you to be able spin. If it happens again put some ice on it right away that way it won't get swollen and uncomfortable.

If you really think it's broken, see a doctor now. If you think it's just a jam, wait a couple days, ice it and rest it and then see how it's going. If it hasn't improved much see a doctor.

I'm not in colorguard but it sounds like you should get it checked before trying to spin again. I hit my elbow once spinning a stupid tripple on a rifle and they told me to just stop and wait for while, but your finger sounds like its in band shape.

Chauk it up as experience. I have many battle wounds from my rifles, sabres, flags, props, etc. It's all part of the game.
