Knuckle pain index finger

Common Questions and Answers about Knuckle pain index finger


I am having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my Right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckle</span>) for almost two months now. I don't have any swelling, warmth, or redness around the site. Could it be related to the distal radius fracture surgery which I had one year back on my Left hand. Thanking you in advance for your highly valued advise.
in conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome there is tingling in hand which may be accompanied by pain and stiffness of wrist and fingers. Trigger f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger can also lead to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckle</span> and other hand parts. This occurs after repeated trauma to the sheath over the knuckle and tendon. There is inability to bend the index finger and straighten it back. You may take an over the counter anti-inflammatory medicine, such as naproxen for pain relief.
The soreness is over to the side in the soft part of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger between the first <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckle</span> and the nail. It hurts if I type or if I press on it in anyway. It also throbs a little and feels hot. There is no detectable swelling or any sort of cyst of any type but the pain has become more bothersome over the last 24 hours. What could be causing this? Should I be worried? I wouldn't really be bothered except I am a guitarist and I don't want it to affect my playing.
My right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger has been swollen for a month now. the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckle</span> is painful to the touch, but i'm able to bend it. Any ideas what it could be?? Thanks for any help!
I took a puck off of my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger and didn't really notice any immediate pain. Over the next couple days I noticed that I couldn't form a fist because my finger was very swollen and hurt to bend that far. Upon further observation I noticed that my first finger knuckle had become very wide, but the rest of my finger remained regular size. It is also very sensitive to touch. This injury happened about a month ago, and I left it assuming it would just heal itself as most injuries seem to.
Well, I'm sorry to say I don't know what it is causing your skin to behave that way, but I can tell you that I have had the exact same problem on the first <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckle</span> on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex fingers on both hands since the summer, of 07. I know that the skin will soften some, and become less likely to crack over the short term if I rub that Hand Sanitizer stuff on it pretty frequently. But that also burns because of the alcohol in it. Lotion doesn't seem to be as effective as the sanitizer.
Hi a few years ago i caught a cricket ball that was coming pretty hard it was a bad catch and most of the ball hit the opposite side of my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckle</span>, it hurt and eventually healed My knuckle now is very low compared to my right one, there pretty much isn't a knuckle there anymore but a small ball (bone) sticking out to the side of the knuckle. It also cant bend (out or in) as far .
I recently picked up a mountain bike to put it in the back of my truck and the seat post put a lot of pressure on the big <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckle</span> on top of my hand that is right where the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger connects to my hand. My finger hurt and went numb for a while and I thought nothing more of it. Then I kept noticing that if I touched this same spot my finger has a shooting sort of pain that radiates down the entire length of my finger all the way to the nail.
As it got worse we noticed the pad on her hand next to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger was swelling with a lot of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> to the touch. We talked to another ortho doc and he said it was carpel tunnel, or trigger finger and wants to inject steroids. He did xrays and the bumps did not show so he ignored them and no other testing was done. Do you agree with this or is there any other testing you'd recommend. I'm worried that this Tx. would agrivate an infection.
The next day my knuckle swelled and there was a bruise at the base of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger. I didn;t think it was broken because i could move it. However, since then, I have knocked in a few occassions and then have pain for a few days. The knuckle is still a little swollen and I also get pain along the finger. Any advice?
On my left hand, my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger is longer than my middle f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger, my ring f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger is shorter than my middle f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger. On my left had, my middle finger is shorter than both other fingers (ring & middle). It's nver caused any problems but I've always wondered why my Mom & I had it.
Because it was hurting worse, I looked at it again lump and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckle</span> at the base of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger was was about three to four times the size of the other and it was hard and painful to the touch. I again saw my doctor and he said it was probably joint capsule inflamation and a steroid shot would most likely fix it and referred me. When I saw the hand surgeon, he concurred but said he wanted to get me an MRI, "just in case".
Hi, I have an issue with my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckle</span>. Basically I get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in the middle of the knuckle and its sti to move. I also have noticed that the top of the joint is loose and the knuckle looks split when raising it up. Any ideas what might be wrong with it? Had this for a couple of years.
I lacerated the tendon between my fingernail and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckle</span> on my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger about 4 years ago.(on the top of the finger). I had surgery to repair the tendon and then had to have the internal sutures removed about 6 months later because they used a thicker suture and they kept poking through the skin. Since then my finger has a clicking sound when I bend it but as of lately it is very painful all the time and the pain shoots up my arm at times.
I have a lump on my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger that i just noticed within the last week. Its between the nail and the first knuckle. I havent noticed any pain, as of yet, and when you squeeze it it feels like just a hard lump with no liquid. What can it possibly be?
I am 33 and in very good health. The 1st <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckle</span> on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger is pretty swollen, stiff and has a fair amount of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> when I bend or touch it. I have already been to urgent care, and was told it was not infected due to no heat or redness. I was given Ibuprofen and a splint, told to follow up tomorrow if no improvement. They sugest bloodwork to test for uric acid or arthritis. he said possibly gout, but that is usually more painful.
A month ago while baking a cake, I noticed a small pain on my middle f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger near my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckle</span> and saw a blister the size of a pinhead. I assumed my now-sensitive skin had reacted to the heat of the oven. It healed and went away. Yesterday, I noticed the same blister. I even popped it to make sure it was a blister, not a wart or growth of some kind. I kept poking at it and I think I irritated it. It hurt to press on.
I cut my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger on the tip side of the middle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckle</span> 2 months ago with a very sharp chefs knife. It was deep enough that I could see the tendon. The ER doc put in 2 really bad stitches which fell out 3 days later. I waited for another week to go to my pcm and it got infected. I was put on antibiotics and he used a steri strip and bandage. I had that on for as long as I could. It lasted maybe a week. I have chickens, huge gardens and I'm constantly in poo, dirt or washing my hands.
about 6 months ago i started to experience pain in my right hand around the middle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>knuckle</span>- but more the area between the pointer and middle f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger from the base of the f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger to the middle of the top of my hand. its often swollen and i noticed a bruise on the top of my hand in that area today. i had an xray when the pain started and they saw nothing.
It's a gamble with too high a risk and too little benefit. I have a friend who cut her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger with a kitchen knife while preparing food. She cleaned it well, used antibiltic ointment, and closed it with butterflies. She was worried about possible scarring so put a splint on to keep the finger from bending and re-opening the cut. She didn't call or go to the doctor. Within a few weeks she had been to her primary doc and been sent immediately to the ortho surgeon.
I worked hard for a couple months doing some exercises I found online trying not to fail my classes and make money. I regained much of my mobility however my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger (the f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger with the knuckle I broke) won't bend down all the way its now been 6 months since the break. this has made hitting the bag and future self defense a bit more tricky when throwing a punch my index finger hits first and makes it bend causing extreme pain which would be impractical in a self defense scenario.
When I held my hand so the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger was towards the ground, it hung unusually further towards the ground than normal. After a few weeks about 90% of my strength came back, but I was still unable to bend it so that all of my fingers can make a fist. If I try to bend my finger any further than it wants to go on its own than it starts to hurt. I've told myself I could just live with it... until I hit it hard on another player in a recent basketball game.
For the last couple of nights, I have awakened in the middle of the night with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger, on the inside of the f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger, between the knuckle and the joint immediately above it. Today, for the first time, I am feeling on and off "twinges" of pain during the day. I am not feeling any pain anywhere else. I did have a severe sprain of my left thumb back in 1982 but am not feeling pain in that area. I have never had an injury to my left index finger.
I can't put pressure on my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>dex f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>ger, alot of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> especially in between the knuckle from my hand to middle of index finger....I also noticed a lump recently in the middle of my palm which does affect the index finger when pressed on...
