Hi Penguiny, Welcome to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> Management Forum. I am sorry to hear about your painful finger. An x-ray generally sees bones and alignments.... it's not a good diagnostic tool for soft tissue including muscles, ligaments or tendons. It's my guess that one of those were injured. I encourage you to return to your PCP and request additional testing. Good imagining may be required to determine the actual injury. Please let us know how you discover. I will look forward to your updates.
I have recently had no stop swelling in my index finger middle joint . I am verry scared of dr visits and blood tests.
It was like someone had a needle and stabbed me with it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> moved it around my skin. It was a horrible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I couldnt even move my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> cause it would make it worst. If you can help me out thank you.
About 2 months ago I woke up with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> pinky <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span>/palm. It was red <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> warm to the touch. I did not injure the finger or the palm in any way. I saw my doctor who ruled out arthritis, infection or any broken bones. I have been applying ice packs and taking anti inflammatories. Nothing seems to help as the pinky is still swollen and hard to bend. When I bend my pinky I get pain in the joint at the knuckle by the palm.
I have been tested for RA <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> thyroid. Gave me a shot in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>joint</span> of cortizone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I had bad reactions <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> still <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> red. I went to ER Monday and they gave me Vicodin for pain. Has anyone else had similar symptons and still negative results on blood work for rhmeutoid arthritis? Any help would be appreciated. I have been to 5 doctors now. I have not worked for 2 months. Have checked my only kidney as well.
The pain has subsided significantly but the swelling is still there as well as tingling sensations in my hands <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> arms. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> with the exception of my thumbs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> first fingers are numb. They ruled out carpal tunnel. I work as a phlebotomist where I come in contact with people who have or have had 5ths disease and am wondering could this be what I might possibly have?
He is 16 months old. Saturday morning his smallest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> was hot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> painful to him when we woke him up. The swelling was confined to just the last joint of his finger, to the tip. My husband examined it to see if there seemed to be a broken bone, but he thought not. As the morning went on, he appeared to be in a good deal of pain and just wanted to be held. By the afternoon, the swelling had increased to over halfway down his finger.
Index finger was slammed in door 2 weeks ago - it was cut on both sides of finger but the cuts have healed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> were never infected. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> is still very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> around the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>joint</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it really hurts to bend - could this be fluid buildup and if so, can I do anything at home to relieve it?

My fingers on my left hand seems a little swollen but the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> is gone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> traveled to my elbow. It is hard to make a fist <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> when I do it creates <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my elbow. I also developed a bad headache yesterday and couldn't get rid of it. Today my elbow still hurts, my left hand still feels stiff and a little swollen and I feel the headache is just around the corner.
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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> swelling in my worst <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span>, 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?
It is accompanied with a mild sore throat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> slightly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> tonsils. Before any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> began I had about 3 weeks of a mild cough, that is almost nonexistent now. The symptoms are: * painful and some swelling joints, both sides of the body: neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, some finger, hips, knees, ankles and big toes * Morning pain, sometimes cannot raise one or both arms to brush hair, etc.
For 2 days after that, I kept it taped and by the third day I could move it without much <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. However, it's been a week <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I haven't regained the ability to curl my finger completely, especially in the morning when it's swollen for about an hour. I also noticed that the part of the joint seems to be sticking out a bit on top, but only slightly. I don't know how many times I've jammed this finger.
I was diagnosed with Myalgia <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> arthralgia ( general muscle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>joint</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>). Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can also cause severe joint pain. I would make an appointment with a Rhumatologist and go from there.

Every now <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> then, I get strange <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>joint</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. I'm 18, healthy, active. I'm not sure what could be wrong. Last summer, I had a few areas that, one by one right after another, would just ache for a few days. It's happened here and there since then but these last few weeks have been miserable for me. I'm a housekeeper at an Alzheimer's home so I'm always busy, always on my feet. I began to have a soreness in my left big toe. It caused a limp, as the pain in my feet have seemed to be the worst.
My hands <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> feet have not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> since that first winter. Every winter <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> spring since then, my hands develop a rash across my knuckles. The rash is very dry, scaly, and itchy. My hands will bleed and dirt will settle into the rash and the rash scars my hands. My fingers become flushed red. (The specialists I saw when I was 13 told me I have Raynauds). My finger joints hurt during this time. I also have hand tremors, but I don't know whether this is related.
Now I can barely bend it without <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> can put little pressure on it to type or play piano - the dr said it was very <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> take naparoxen and ice it. i was doing that and seemed somewhat better but today i was trying to bend it more and now it si worse again. i feel that the aspirin works better than the naproxen but today even that is not helping much. What do i do?
(blood level) In the past few years I have had 2 episodes of pretty severe knee <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the first time the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> was excruciating, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> what I had turned out to be osteonecrosis. Thank God, my PCP was the only one who had the wisdom to check my vit D level and it was very, very low. With supplements, the condition healed by itself and left no traces. This last time I told my oncologist I needed to have this test again and he was fairly unimpressed as I was already taking it.
My finger got bent sideways slightly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the main knuckle was sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>. It healed without any problems. Over the past couple of months, the same knuckle has been very painful when tying shoes, pulling things, using hammer, making a fist or even typing. Any feedback on what might be going on would be appreciated.....can't really afford to run to a hand specialist for a sore finger, but at times the pain is getting close to the point when i will have no other choice.
I have been in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> for over 28 years. with back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> joints, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> fatigue. The military doctors wanted me to alway see a shrink the pain and other symtoms are not in my mind. It is real, and now the VA is treating me for it. To all of you out there fight for the test and don't take the mental route unless you feel depress. With the pain you should feel depress. Soory for typing, but I have trouble with the hands. Good luck and keep fighting to find some relief.
The soreness was only on the right side. Besides that i've felt slight <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> under my armpit <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> groin area, but could not find any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> lymph nodes. 4 days later the sore throat was almost over, but i started to feel feverish. I monitored my body temperature, but never came above 37.6. I had that during the evening, and an hour later is was less. The same was the evening after that, but i reached a temperature of 37.4. Now I don't know if those temperatures are considered as Fever.
it was more like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>joint</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sometimes the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> would radiate through my palm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> other fingers as well. well today i woke up and now the finger is kind of swollen and it kind of feels weird to type with it or use the mouse. it feels dry and it also hurts but not the point that its stopping me from using the keyboard or the mouse. what could this possibly be? maybe bad position while sleeping or something?
i have a swollen little finger from an injury at pip joint on the dorsal side.
There was lots of pain and swelling intitially but now that is considerably reduced. However the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>joint</span> is still <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span> a bit <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> does not totally straighten or at least doesn't appear to because of the residual swelling. The joint bends well but I notice when I do a lot of manual labor with that hand, I get increased swelling and some pain. My question is whether anything can really be done at this point?
I am 33 and in very good health. The 1st knuckle on my index <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>finger</span> is pretty <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>swollen</span>, stiff <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> has a fair amount of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</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.
