The knuckle of my index finger hurts when I bend it (burning/pulling feeling). Comes and goes. No redness or swelling. What is it/how to heal?

Varies: There are multiple potential causes and I would not hesitate to be seen for an accurate diagnosis. Among the more common causes is a synovitis of the lining of the joint capsule if that joint. If not contraindicated, trying an NSAIDs when it is symptomatic may be of some benefit. ...Read more

How : How long has this been going on? Did you have an injury? These symptoms are typical of an inflammatory arthropathy (the generic name for a number of conditions that cause stiffness and swelling). Some examples are rheumatoid arthritis, gout, psoriatic arthritis, and lupus, though there are literally hundreds of them. I would recommend seeing your primary care physician or a rheumatologist promptly. There are a number of new treatments available and the newer studies show that interrupting the inflammation before 6 weeks can prevent joint destruction. You will likely have an examination and a lot of blood tests to help diagnose the cause. X-rays can be helpful, but are not always necessary. I tell my patients that it is the rheumatologist's job to keep you out of my office. While there are reasons to do surgery on some people with inflammatory arthropathy, the goal is really to avoid the need. ...Read more

My fingers hurt at the joint? When i bend my fingers it hurts at the joint of the fingers? I use to hit the heavy bag a lot during boxing sessions.

Overuse?: You are usuing your hands to hit a heavy bag, and your hands hurt afterward. Sounds like overuse. When you make a fist the knuckles are covered only by skin and tendon. There is no padding. Repeated blows to this area can cause inflammation of the joints which accounts for the stiffness. You need to back off the hitting until the pain IG gone, then use gloves before resuming. ...Read more

Ice splint elevate: Rest Ice Compression Elevation (RICE) is a good mnemonic for most sports injuries. Your finger is probably sprained but a tendon rupture, dislocation or fracture is possible. Keep your hand elevated, apply ice on/off and be sure that you have good circulation to the fingertip (remove any rings). if symptoms persist for a few days consider a visit to your doctor and possible X-ray. ...Read more
