In brief: Joint or tendon?

This may be tendon rather than joint.
Can't say for sure why you are experiencing numbness. Ask you physician to evaluate your symptoms. You may need to see a rheumatologist or hand orthopedic surgeon to clarify this.

Which knuckle? Sometimes and rarely inflammatory arthritis starts in one joint.Joint distribution is a key to diagnosis.
