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

When I move my finger a part by the joint gives a sharp pain (when touched too) no visual injury. Pain is lessening. Why does it hurt? How do I heal?

When I move my finger a part by the joint gives a sharp pain (when touched too) no visual injury. Pain is lessening. Why does it hurt? How do I heal?

Finger pain: It's possible that the joint has been sprained by some action or overuse activities that you're not obviously aware of. I recommend avoiding stressing that finger, warm soaks, and,if you can take them, anti-inflammatory medications like Advil or Aleve (naproxen) should help. If the finger is reddened and swollen, infection or acute arthritis may be present and you should be evaluated by a physician. ...Read more

Skin lump: If you use this hand or finger to do repetitive activities like playing an instrument, sport or hobby, it is possible that this is the start of a callus. These are extra growth of the skin in small areas used to protect the underlying tissue and are common to the hands or feet.
