Hand pain when squeezing/closing, tendon that runs from my middle finger down to my wrist that seems to be cramp. I've been golfing a lot so maybe grip?

Hand pain when squeezing/closing, tendon that runs from my middle finger down to my wrist that seems to be cramp. I've been golfing a lot so maybe grip?

Tendonitis: Your pain suggests inflammation of the tendon (tendonitis) that flexes your middle finger and that also contributes to clenching your fist and flexing the wrist. It's possible that your grip is incorrect or possibly just from overuse. Anti-inflammatory medication and rest should help. If not see physician. If you have a history of stomach ulcer or take other medication consult with your Dr first. ...Read more

My right hand center part is cut with a glass tube two months before. Tendon of my one finger is partially cut & upper part doesn't moved. Recovery?

Need more info: Hopefully you were treated by a hand surgeon. This kind of repair is tricky and should be done by an experienced orthopedic surgeon. My strong suggestion is if you did have a repair of the laceration and have these side effects you should return to the surgeon and following that you may need rehabilitation to try to return to normal use of your right hand. ...Read more

Trigger finger seems: To be your problem.
Next step might be a cortisone shot, which can relieve the pain/discomfort and allow the triggering to resolve (mostly temporarily).
Then surgery would help to release the triggered finger.
See an orthopod to help you.
Good luck ; happy holidays. ...Read more

They will reattach your tendons and hopefully your nerve function is intact and you will make a recovery and do hand therapy.

Hard to say.: A sunken knuckle often means a "boxer's fracture." Get checked to see. Only an x-ray can determine of this is more than a tendon injury. If you have a loss of finger function, you may have also damaged your tendon too, and this may need to be repaired to prevent permanent damage. Get seen! ...Read more
