Several possibilitie: It depends where most of the pain is. Do you have arthritis is any of the joints? Does the finger catch when you bend it or get stuck in your palm? Any signs of infection? Any numbness or tingling? Some initial things to try would be warm soaks, anti-inflammatory medicines (if you can tolerate them). If symptoms continue see a hand specialist. ...Read more

Maybe short lived: If you just twisted during sleep or had an athletic event it should go away on its own. If you injured the area and the joint fluid leaked you may a synovial cyst. Let it resolve for a few days without using it and ice it. If this resolves it was abruise and is better. If not see your doctor to check it out in person to make sure you are ok. Hope it gets better. ...Read more

Keep icing it.: Unfortunately, until the swelling goes down, it will hurt to bend it. The extra fluid in your finger (leaking from the injury) presses on the nerves & distorts shape. Keep icing it until the swelling goes down. If u r young & healthy, then taking an OTC medication could help. Acetaminophen is preferred, If u need something stronger, I wd suggest prescription Naprelan (naproxen) w/ food, but TTYD about that. ...Read more
