Common Questions and Answers about Finger joint hurts

finger

this is the third day that my right index finger is swellon and hurts to touch. keeping in mind that it could be either arthritis or a insect bite because i was in shed.
My question is regarding the first joint of my right hand index finger. I believe it is called the proximal interphalangeal joint. The joint has been very sensitive to the touch for a few weeks with no sign of abating. The joint also hurts a little if I bend it fully, but not nearly as much as if I just touch it with a little pressure. I do not see any outward signs of injury. It is not red or swollen. I have no similar pains in any other fingers or joints.
The Boxer’s fractures are treated by immobilizing the joint using a variety of splints, a cast, or taping techniques. “Buddy-taping” involves taping the little finger to the ring finger. It typically takes four to six weeks for the fracture to heal and thereafter some more time to regain motion and strength. Take care and do keep us posted.
Fingers didn't hurt immediately when I woke up, but still hurts my fourth finger right hand smallest joint significantly to spread my fingers or stretch the finger at all. The fourth finger on my left hand hurts to spread my fingers/stretch my fingers too. The pinkie does not, but it does hurt to press on the joint when my fist is closed. When I press on the joint that way, the fourth finger on my right hand used to grind, but it does not any more. The two fingers on my left hand still grind.
I also buddy taped it. Now, two days later, it is still swollen and the middle joint of my index finger hurts. I can only bend it about halfway before it begins feeling stiff and hurts. I am not sure if it is just a jammed finger or a sprain or is there a fracture or dislocation?
It also hurts to stretch my fingers out (laying flat is okay, but if I try to stretch them at all, it hurts). It also hurts to press downward while the finger is flat (scrubbing a counter-top or picking up a heavy book both hurt significantly). Now, two more fingers on my left hand have begun to progress exactly the same way with exactly the same pain.
I'm a house painter and recently brought my hand down onto the sharp point of one of my painting tools. It cut into the side if my rt hand middle finger, middle joint (between the knuckle and the lower joint) It bled a bit and swelled up of course. That was over two weeks ago. I still have noticable swelling in that joint, especially on the rt side, and considerable pain. The rest of my hand hurts lately, probably from compensating for the lack of use of the middle finger. Any ideas?

I crushed my lower part of my index finger on Feb 14th. The swelling has been gone for the last 2 weeks. I can feel a bump under the skin. It hurts very badly if I bang it. It doesnt effect the joint movement. My doctor exrayed it and said there is no bone abnomality. So what is the bump? Me mentioned it was a piece of cartalidge? Is this true? Will it go away on its own? He wouldnt see me again about it, I hear it from his secretary.
I fell at a baseball game around 6 weeks ago, I fell on my hand and fingers were bent back under me. I had x-rays done and have 2 small fractures in Pinki finger, However, My pointer finger 2ND joint is twice the normal size, skin keeps peeling off, and I can't fully straighten it out. Also, the back of my hand and palm swell when I use them for a period of time. The pain in my hand is about a 6 on pain scale. I have been to the Dr. twice now. I ice it and massage it as best I can tolerate.
if any of you are having joint pains that move around from one joint to the other where the joint feels stiff or swollen and you cannot put your weight on it because it is so painful eg knees, then i would suggest that you have a blood test to see if you have any food allergies. for several years i had what seemed like osteoarthritis and was told by doctors to just live with it as it is part of the wear and tear and aging process.

There also seems to be a clicking in my palm beneath the finger when I move the finger back and forth that is not found in any other finger.

Yesterday I fell while hiking and broke my finger (right hand ring finger) Went to the ER got an x-ray that showed the break in-between the knuckle and the last joint on the finger. They gave me a referal to an ortho but he is out of town for a couple of weeks, so they said to call my Dr to get a referal for an ortho as soon as possible. The finger is severally swollen, bruising bad and I can't move it up or down.
The middle bone of my middle finger on my right hand near the knuckle joint has been painful for about 3 weeks. It hurts to extend my finger a bit but it hurts a lot more when I press the area. The pain hasn't gotten worse or better. it feels like its right below the joint. It also look a little different than my other fingers but it's not red. When i palpate the area, the bone feels a little thicker and less defined than my other bones/joint on my hand. What do you think?

I suddenly developed intense burning pain in my index finger knuckle on my left hand, which lasted for 2 days, it felt sprained. Yesterday it traveled to my elbow.

It is hard to make a fist and when I do it creates pain in my elbow. I also developed a bad headache yesterday and couldn't get rid of it.
any amount of swelling in a small joint such as a finger joint can cause quite a bit of discomfort. It sounds like you "jammed" the joint(s). It can take a long time to resolve. Like 6-9 months. You could try soaking it in hot water to loosen things up and try to pull and put tension on the finger to loosen up the joint. Pull the finger slowly, steadily, and gently straight out. I have found this can help loosen it up and relieve some pressure in the joint.
My middle finger on my left hand hurts when I bend it. In a resting position I am experiencing a throbbing pain. Most of the pain is around the first upper most joint. This injuer occurred when my dog pulled and the leash somehow became entangled around my fingers. How do I know whether it is broken?
I have a bump on my pointer finger right on the joint. I have rheumatoid arthritis. What is it? It hurts.
Hurts to squeeze tightly, shake someones hand, and definitely cannot move the finger side to side. Moving the finger back toward the back of my hand doesn't hurt though. NSAIDS help only a little, but they tear my stomach up. Weird thing is that hot water makes it feel about 85% better instantly every time. Ice doesn't help much. Anybody have any clue what is wrong and what I can do to fix this?
It has been about a month i can type make a fist and nothing hurts just a little tinder where it is swelling at in the joint of the knuckle. Please help with swelling reduction. I have been using ice and was wondering if there was some kind of cream?
Physio said it was tendon and ligament damage but i'm not responding to treatment as I should. Vimovo helps. Last night I suddenly felt pain and swelling in my worst finger, it quickly spread to my arm, both knees, and shoulder on the opposite side. Still very painful today - shoulder hurts like I overused the muscles, knees hurt to bend, worse with weight but even just to move them. Figers are swollen and sore. What happened?
Arthritis or inflammation of joint that moves from joint to joint (migratory) can be due to Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, rheumatic fever, SLE, HIV, Lyme’s disease, sarcoidosis, Whipple’s disease, Henoch-Schnlein Purpura, bacterial endocarditis and gonoccoccal arthritis. Hashimotos thyroidits is another possibility. It can also be fibromyalgia and or chronic fatigue syndrome. The best thing would be to consult a general practitioner or PCP and try and assess what is the cause of your problem.
The meta carpo phalangeal joint is involved or the proximal interphalangeal joint of your finger is involved. Go for an examination near an orthopedician and also see if you have any tendon injuries as often these injuries are missed. The flexor tendons which are commonly affected; viz flexor digitorium: Flexor digitorium profundus and flexor digitorium superficialis. Take care!

Hello, I have a question concerning joint pain and swellowing of limbs (especially hands). I am a 44 years old woman and for the past couple of months have been expressing serious pain, in the morning, of my hands. They swell up and it is really painful. They do not change colour, and nothing else hurts (except the hands). I went to the doctor and she told to do an X-ray of my hands. She also said it could be rheumatoid arthritis.
