For several months, I have had pain in two fingers (top joints) - no swelling. More painful to touch than bend. One finger much more painful ?

In brief: DIP joint OA

Osteoarthritis of the hand is a common condition.
A common site where arthritis happens in the hand is at the joint closest to the fingertip (the distal interphalangeal or DIP joint). All forms of hand arthritis can cause stiffness, swelling, pain, and deformity. Osteoarthritis sometimes causes bony nodules at the end joint of the finger (Heberden’s nodes).
