Likely nerve injury: Sounds like a nerve injury, which are common. Is the burning in the same finger that was cut? If so, you likely cut the nerve in the process. If not, you may have crushed the nerve at the same time you got the cut. Usually, these nerve injuries heal with time, but can take months. You should have your doctor take a look, however.
Broke my ring finger when I was 18 (42 now) and knuckle has always been larger and crooked, but never hurt.. Suddenly the joint is stiff and painful?
Arthritis: You may be developing arthritic inflammation in the injured joint, however, if the pain is acute with a warm and tender joint, there may be bursitis, tendinitis or even osteomyelitis (doubtful without an acute penetrating injury ).

My middle finger only has been numb for weeks. It's only on the side next to my ring finger and only from the second joint to the tip. Cause?
Nerves?: Are you wearing a ring on the finger next to it? It sounds like you may have injured the nerve on the finger next to it just from bumping into the ring every day. Try a few days with the ring off and see if it improves. If you're not wearing a ring, did you have any injuries to the finger? Hope it gets better for you!
