Probable strain: I suspect you may have strained either a tendon or ligament in your hand. Would probably take a few days off from golf and then go back out. If you are having a lot of pain from it, i would rest it more for maybe a couple of weeks. Still not better, see your doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

Neck vs shoulder: Symptoms of hand pain are often are a result of pressure on a nerve. This can be originating in the neck or perhaps at the elbow. The pinky and ring finger are innervated by the ulnar nerve at the elbow and by a specific nerve root (c8) in the neck. Swelling in the hand is an unusual symptom. Prior to an evaluation pay close attention to when the swelling occurs and if it truly is in all fingers. ...Read more
