Tendon strain: Without opportunity to physically examine your finger and X-ray, a formal diagnosis is difficult. If there is no swelling, no fever or chills, no redness around the joint and it is only tender on the posterior surface of the joint, one would typically think of a strained extensor tendon or the ligaments connecting the proximal and middle phalanx. Should get better--see MD if not improved in week
