In brief: Musician index pain

See a hand specialist, or physical therapist.
No drug can help a physical problem caused by long term use and abuse of the finger. At least allow it some rest with some ointment of anti-inflammatory bengay, voltaren (diclofenac) if pain and swelling. It rest and ointment-cream fails, see specialist (and send me a cd of your music!).
