Left hand middle finger tight with stiffness. Can't bend it. Swollen @ the joint & palm. No pain, just uncomfortable.

No injury? Assuming you haven't injured that finger somehow (sometimes it is hard to remember...might have seemed like nothing at the time)... I'm thinking things that aren't exactly "serious", but that doesn't mean it doesn't hurt! Possibly tendinitis in that finger, or a bit of arthritis in the joint. Try using an ice pack, and reducing movement, maybe w/ a splint. If it continues, I would get an x-ray. .

Swollen ring finger on left hand. No joint pain just stiffness. No other fingers hurt. Both hand and wrist feel fine. No redness. Any ideas?

Swollen finger. Most likely it was an insect bite or an injury that was not remembered. You have ruled out a systemic arthritis. Tumors of the hand are rare. You are too young for most other problems with fingernails. They would be obvious and painful. Occasionally, you can see tiny pin point sites of the bite. Use a magnifier. Don't be surprised if it itches. Warm soaks may help clear the toxins. Read more...
