Yesterday (Monday) evening I looked at my ring and the bottom is completely flat! I'm pretty sure it wasn't like that on Sunday or even earlier in the day on Monday. I don't think I had a seizure and and smashed my finger on something because if I did then it would be killing me, but it's not. I don't take it off but if I did and it got smashed I would have noticed when I put it back on. No clue what happened, really weird.
 
Hi Val,
I used to work with jewelry and if you want to you can take the ring to a jeweler who can melt down some of the ring on the
bottom and shape it back to normal. I will tell you though that if it's 18 Kt. gold and you do this the band may crack on down
the road because 18 kt. is a lot softer than 14 kt. Your ring looks like my wedding ring because it's so old and warn out.
I wish you the best of luck and May God Bless You!

Looks like the ring impacted on a flat surface. Maybe you grabbed something tightly, caught something thrown in the air or slapped a hard surface?
 
It looks like you pushed that hand/finger up against something very hard. At least you were still able to take the ring off. Sue is right--a jeweler can help reshape it for you.
 
I'm pretty sure it's 24k. It was my grandma's and she left it to me when she died. I think it's at least 60 years old, maybe older. When I showed it to my mom she didn't say anything about anything like this happening before.

I'm taking it to a jewelry store to get it fixed this afternoon.

I live in my grandparents old house and always say my grandparents haunt it. Maybe they have something to do with it?
 
Hi Val,

Be sure to take the ring to a very good jeweler especially if the ring is 24 kt. that will be very soft so be sure you get
someone with a lot of experience. I wish you the best of luck and May God Bless You!

I am taking to a jewelry store that's been around forever. It's usually where we buy and take everything to get fixed. It might have even been where the ring was bought.

I do like to grab things sometimes during seizures. There have been time when they can't get whatever I'm holding onto out of my hand until after I'm out of the seizure. I still can't believe that my finger or hand aren't killing me?
 
I know what you mean about gripping things very tightly during a seizure. I'll also do that if I am holding something when a complex partial seizure starts.
