Not likely. : The fingers themselves don't have muscles inside them. They do have tendons, bones, ligaments, blood vessels and nerves. The muscles that control the fingers are in the forearm and palm. If you have soreness in the finger itself it could be do ligament injury, fracture, or tendon injury.
