In brief: Rest

You could have over worked your hands causing them to be sore and swollen.
Rest can help and possibly otc anti-inflammatory medications. If this does not help you may need to go to the doctors to be evaluated and diagnosed.

In brief: Glucosamine/fish oil

Natural antiinflammatories help the whole body and fish oil is the best to use.
Also look at foods with turmeric. Glucosamine is a good supplement to use for joint health but give it a couple of weeks of use before you look to notice a response.
