Can having a trigger finger cause other fingers at the base to swell due to inflammation in the palm.

In brief: Trigger finger

Yes. It is not uncommon for the adjacent digits to certainly be tender and even sometimes visibly swollen.
If it involves both hands or more than just the adjacent digits i would also consider an inflammatory arthritis potentially contributing.

In brief: Sure

Some tendons can be involved with inflammation but not trigger this could cause swelling and perhaps pain.
