In brief: Finger pain

In the absence of other symptoms (like redness, rash, color changes, etc) and no injuries, this does not sound like anything of major concern.
An over the counter pain medication should help. If your symptoms persist or you develop other joint pain/swelling, I would consult a rheumatologist. I would happy to consult if needed.
