Tendonitis Of Index Finger
One condition that: Can show up as pain between fingers in the web is tendonitis or trigger digit of either finger on the palm side in the flexor tendon. Pain can seem to be in the web but actually the palm may be tender near the finger palm crease. And just near it in the palm under knuckle this is not often written about but its is something I've observed many times clinically. / check your palm to see if so.
Varies: If it is not very much of a problem, you may just leave it go or try an antiinflammatory. If it gets worse, consider being seen. It is a fairly uncommon place to have a tendinitis. One of the more common causes is called cubital tunnel syndrome, which is a pinching of the ulnar nerve at the elbow and can cause pain or numbness in the fourth and fifth fingers.
The palm area below my index fingers on both hands is slightly swollen and my fingers are stiff. Could this be finger tendonitis from overuse?
See below:: Possibly yes, but it happening on both sides at the same time is uncommon. It could be a number of other things in a 35 yo female, like rheumatoid. Common things like a ganglion cysts, trigger fingers etc, would be more likely cause of your problem. Consulting your ortho or hand surgeon would be beneficial for you.
Unlikely: A tendonitis of the hand would cause pain, swelling and tenderness along the flexor tendon of usually one finger. A stenosing tenosynovitis would cause a trigger finger. Isolated stiffness as a symptoms would not be a symptom. Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, which usually causes numbness and tingling in the hand, can occasionally present itself just with numbness in the thumb and index finger.

Pain in muscle of thumb, especially when gripping or if I press on it. No tingling or pain in other fingers. Is this tendonitis?
Possible: This sounds more like a contusion than tendonitis, but it would be possible to have a tendonitis of a flexor tendon. It would be reasonable to treat with ice/heat as well as NSAIDs (i.e. Advil, (ibuprofen) Aleve), and then see an orthopedist for further evaluation if symptoms persist or worsen.
Saw my dr. Yesterday & she said I have tendonitis in one finger & the side of my hand. She prescribed cortisone cream, (very strong) will this work?
Doubtful: Steroid creams applied to the skin will not penetrate to the level of the tendons and therefore will most likely not be successful in treating your problem.See 1 more doctor answer

Understanding: These symptoms certainly seen in many rheumatic disease with lupus on the list. Many immune symptoms are frustrating but also can be treated.

I have rotator cuff tendinitis. About a month ago I started going numb from my shoulder to my elbow & now from my elbow to my fingers are tingling & numbing when I try to level my arm with my shoulder?
T.O.S.: Chronic shoulder aching followed by tingling ; numbness arm ; hand suggests thoracic outlet syndrome, as arm nerves are impinged (pinched) in shoulder region. These symptoms oft occur when arm raised to shoulder height as clavicle (collar bone) caused to rotate downward causing closure of space between clavicle ; underlying 1st rib. See an osteopath. Imo many neurologist doubt existence of tos.See 1 more doctor answer
