Need to be seen: Early and accurate treatment is very important for fingers to ensure adequate healing and normal long-term function. I would strongly recommend you be evaluated by an orthopedic specialist quite soon.

Exam: You should certainly see a physician for evaluation. Sounds like trigger finger or there could be other issues of tendons. Recommendations will depend a lot on findings.
