In brief: NOT anxiety
Painful swollen fingers may be due to some form of 'auto-immune' arthritis.
Simple blood tests (sed rate/crp) can quickly test for inflammation and confirmatory testing (ccp, ra, ana) may be neeed. I would get seen by primary care doctor. For now you can take nsaids (i suggest Aleve (naproxen) 2 in am, 2pm). Anxiety should not cause edema per se. Hope you are better soon!
