Common Questions and Answers about Pain in index finger knuckle

finger

I am having pain in my Right index finger (knuckle) 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 finger can also lead to pain in index finger, knuckle 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 index finger between the first knuckle 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 index finger has been swollen for a month now. the knuckle is painful to the touch, but i'm able to bend it. Any ideas what it could be?? Thanks for any help!
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 knuckle on top of my hand that is right where the index finger 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.
I took a puck off of my right index finger 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.
Lotion doesn't seem to be as effective as the sanitizer. And sometimes the pain in either knuckle will be so bad that it wakes me up when, and I feel like something is gnawing on my skin. Please, let me know if you find a solution to this problem because I'd love to find one myself ! Oye... and is it really dry where you live ? That's the only thing I've been able to come close to guessing might have some cause in it for me... dry climate.
Because it was hurting worse, I looked at it again lump and the knuckle at the base of my index finger 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 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 index finger knuckle, 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 .
As it got worse we noticed the pad on her hand next to the index finger was swelling with a lot of pain 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.
hi i this is also my first time here and i have somthing similar except my thumb is longer than my index and middle finger and my middle finger is the smallest, although my thumb cant bend because i have no knuckles in it and i only have i knuckle in my index and middle finger and because of this i cant make a fist but my ring and pinky finger are normal apart from my ring finger being the biggest out of all my fingers and my thumb this is the same on both my hands
Hi, I have an issue with my left index finger knuckle. Basically I get pain 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 knuckle on my left index finger 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 am 33 and in very good health. The 1st knuckle on my index finger is pretty swollen, stiff and has a fair amount of pain 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 finger near my knuckle 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 index finger on the tip side of the middle knuckle 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 knuckle- but more the area between the pointer and middle finger from the base of the finger 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.
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 index finger (the finger 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.
Her dominant hand index finger is permanantly fixed in a curved position. When there is ANY amount of bleeding it means the skin has been broken and bacteria have had an opportunity to enter. It sounds like your cut was close to or over your knuckle. The trip for bacteria from skin to knuckle is very short. The trip for antibiotics from blood to bone is long and difficult. Yup, go get the antibiotic and do it now! Hope your mishap has a non-event ending.
Could there be a cyst under the vein or an aneurysm? It is on my lefthand index finger between the knuckle and first joint. I am a 65-year-old woman and did not injure the site.
For the last couple of nights, I have awakened in the middle of the night with pain in my left index finger, on the inside of the finger, 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 index finger, alot of pain 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...
Ever now and then, some days more than others I get a sharp burring sensation in my left pinky, or index finger that comes and goes quickly but is painful enough to make me stop what I am doing and if I am holding something I would either let go or drop it. I'm thinking arthritis but am not sure.
I was tucking in my shirt and heard a pop, and then felt sharp pain in my index finger. Looking at it I noticed the top knuckle is bent in the direction it should bend at about a 45 deg. angle, but it will not straighten. It stays bent at 45 deg. even if I try to straighten out my finger. There isn't a lot of pain. It was numb last night and is still not 100%. The only pain and swelling are actually on the middle knuckle. What should I do?
I have been having a strange feeling in my index finger recently, it has been happening for a while now. I have been getting a sudden hot feeling that starts at my knuckle and travels down my finger and lasts few seconds. It feels like something has just released some hot liquid ( like a bubble popping) in my finger and travels all the way down my finger. I happens very often throughout the day and has been happening for several months. Its a very strange feeling.
