In brief: Many things affect

Our hands and if you do something that also sues your hands often the two things intersect.
Rather than looking to the piano as cause and effect, think about common things that often affect this region such as tendonitis and arthritis. Musicians, surgeons, carpenters, hairdresser and all ofus rely upon our hands and have things "show up" when we d things frequently because its how we spend time.

In brief: Hand pain

If you are having pain between the index and middle fingers it is probably related to overuse.
You probably need to cut back on your pressure that you strike the keys or just take some time off to let your hand heal.
