In brief: Neurontin/hand pain
There are many reasons for hand pain.
If there is suspected nerve problems causing the pain, Neurontin (gabapentin) may help. Swelling will not be helped and Neurontin (gabapentin) can actually cause swelling in the hands, legs and feet in some people.

In brief: Probably not
Gabapentin or Neurontin (gabapentin) is a commonly used for chronic pain, headaches, and neuropathies but i would think swelling would not be an indication.
