Middle joint of finger swollen: 15 Causes of Swollen Fingers


Middle Knuckle Pain in the Finger | Causes and Treatments

Causes of pain in the middle knuckle of the finger

Any condition that causes accumulation of fluid in the tissues of your finger will cause swelling and accompanying pain. Swelling can occur throughout the body due to a variety of causes, but swelling in just one part of the finger has limited triggers. A swollen finger or painful middle knuckle may not seem serious initially, but without prompt medical follow-up and care, your symptoms could worsen.


Pain in the middle knuckle of the finger is often the result of injury and the resulting inflammatory response.

  • Rheumatologic: This category includes inflammatory conditions involving the body’s tissues and joints. Conditions such as arthritis and gout cause inflammation that easily brings fluid into the tissues leading to swelling, redness, and tenderness of single fingers and often the big toe.
  • Infections: The skin is home to many bacteria that can easily get into the finger via a cut, bite or other puncture. The bacteria will infect the tissues of the finger and cause entrance of fluids into the tissues that result in inflammation, swelling and other associated symptoms. Viral infections can also cause swelling of the finger in people with jobs that require exposure of the finger to body parts such as the mouth (dentists, nurses, healthcare professionals). This condition is known as herpetic whitlow.


The finger is susceptible to many outside forces that can result in pain and injury.

  • Trauma: Trauma to the finger that causes pain and swelling can include simple mishaps such as jamming one’s finger on a wall or serious accidents that result in broken bones.
  • Weather: Sometimes extremely cold or hot weather can trigger swelling in people with pre-existing conditions such as Raynaud’s syndrome. Observe for any patterns in your finger swelling and tell your doctor in order to investigate an underlying condition.

Non-serious finger injury

Finger injuries are very common & rarely need medical treatment.

Rarity: Common

Top Symptoms: recent finger injury, finger pain from an injury, swollen finger, severe finger pain

Symptoms that always occur with non-serious finger injury: recent finger injury

Symptoms that never occur with non-serious finger injury: bent or crooked finger

Urgency: Self-treatment

Middle knuckle finger dislocation

The middle knuckle is called the proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint. A PIP joint dislocation occurs when trauma causes the bones of the finger to dislodge, resulting in a very painful and swollen joint.

Rarity: Rare

Top Symptoms: bent or crooked finger, finger dislocation at the knuckle connected to the palm, pain in the middle knuckle of the finger, finger pain from an injury, swelling of the small knuckle of the dmiddle index finger

Symptoms that always occur with middle knuckle finger dislocation: bent or crooked finger, finger dislocation at the knuckle connected to the palm

Urgency: Primary care doctor

Rheumatoid arthritis

Arthritis is a general term for multiple conditions that cause painful inflammation and stiffness throughout the body. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic condition that is autoimmune in nature, meaning that the body’s immune system which normally protects the body by att..

Psoriatic arthritis

Psoriatic arthritis is a condition which causes inflammation of the joints. In most circumstances, psoriatic arthritis presents between the ages of 30 and 50 years and occurs after the manifestation of the symptoms of psoriasis, which is a disease of the skin. Psoriatic arthritis..

6 Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) Symptoms & Signs

4. You just don’t feel well, and you may notice bumps on your elbows. With RA, you may have flu-like symptoms, such as low-grade fevers, stiffness, and fatigue from inflammation. Occasionally, small tender bumps or nodules under the skin will develop with RA, often near the back of the elbow. These are called rheumatoid nodules.

5. Your joints are particularly stiff for more than an hour in the morning. With rheumatoid arthritis, you may find it difficult to completely make a fist. You may have unusually tender swelling on the top of your wrists along with stiffness. If your elbows are involved, it may be difficult for you to straighten them completely. Usually, you won’t have swelling or pain in your hip joints early in the course of RA. Painful hip joints more often are due to OA, and most people feel the pain in the front of the hip or in the groin region.

6. Certain blood tests may help determine whether you have RA. These are usually ordered by your health provider, but there are companies that allow you to order these tests yourself (Hint: Google search order your own lab tests). Four important tests are usually ordered for an RA diagnosis. Two measure proteins in your blood called antibodies: Rf (rheumatoid factor) and CCP (anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide). The other two measure inflammation: ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate) and CRP (C-reactive protein). With RA, at least one Rf or CCP test must be positive and at least one CRP or ESR test must be abnormal.

ACRs Point System to Confirm an RA Diagnosis

The American College of Rheumatology (ACR) has developed a point system to help confirm the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis; your score has to be at least six points for a definitive diagnosis of RA. Here’s a simplified summary of how the points are measured:

The number of Swollen or Tender Joints Can Count for up to 5 Points

  • Two or more large joints (1 point)
  • One to three small joints (2 points)
  • 4 to 10 small joints (3 points)
  • 10 joints with at least one small joint (5 points)

Blood Tests Should Be Positive, and Give Additional Points

  • At least one positive Rf or CCP (2 to 3 points depending on how high)
  • And at least one abnormal CRP or abnormal ESR (1 point)

One additional point is added if you’ve had symptoms for at least six weeks. Many doctors realize that it’s possible to have RA and not meet all the criteria. You should have a detailed discussion with your doctor about whether you should start treatment. Although current RA drugs are very effective, they sometimes have serious side effects.

RA Goals: Early Detection and Treatment

We now know that some forms of RA are very aggressive, and much permanent joint damage can occur within the first 12 months. RA cannot be cured yet, but joint damage can be slowed and sometimes stopped. Understanding the difference between OA aches and pains and early signs of RA is critical to saving your joints from painful damage and disability. If you’re having trouble explaining your joint pain and possible arthritis symptoms to your doctor, try writing them down in a journal, or visit a website dedicated to pain management, such as my website,

Douglas Roberts, MD, has been practicing rheumatology since 1990. He is an associate professor of medicine at the School of Medicine at the University of California in Davis, and an attending physician at UCD Medical Center. He created the website to help people with painful joints understand possible causes, and get help for serious arthritic conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis.

Pain in and Around a Single Joint – Musculoskeletal and Connective Tissue Disorders

A complete physical examination is done. All major organ systems (eg, skin and nails, eyes, genitals, mucosal surfaces, heart, lungs, abdomen, nose, neck, lymph nodes, neurologic system) should be examined, as well as the musculoskeletal system. Vital signs are reviewed for fever. Examination of the head, neck, and skin should note any signs of conjunctivitis, psoriatic plaques, tophi, or ecchymoses. Genital examination should note any discharge or other findings suggesting sexually transmitted diseases.

Because involvement of other joints can be clues to a polyarthritis and a systemic disorder, all joints should be inspected for tenderness, deformities, erythema, and swelling.

Palpation helps determine the location of tenderness. Palpation also helps detect joint effusion, warmth, and bony hypertrophy. The joint can also be compressed without flexing or extending it. Range of motion is assessed actively and passively, with attention to the presence of crepitus and whether pain is triggered by joint motion (passive as well as active). For injuries, the joint is stressed with various maneuvers (as tolerated) to identify disruption of cartilage or ligaments (eg, in the knee, valgus and varus tests, anterior and posterior drawer tests, Lachman test, McMurray test). Findings should be compared with those in the contralateral unaffected joint to help detect more subtle changes. Noting whether the tenderness is directly over the joint line or adjacent to it or elsewhere is particularly helpful in determining whether pain (particularly when the knee is involved) is articular or periarticular.

Large effusions in the knee are typically readily apparent. The examiner can check for minor effusions by pushing the suprapatellar pouch inferiorly and then pressing medially on the lateral side of the patella on an extended knee. This maneuver causes swelling to appear (or be palpable) on the medial side. Large knee effusions in obese patients are best detected with ballottement of the patella. In this technique, the examiner uses both hands to push in toward the center of the knee from all four quadrants and then uses 2 or 3 fingers to push the patella down into the trochlear groove and releases it. Clicking or a feeling that the patella is floating suggests an effusion.

Periarticular structures also should be examined for point tenderness, such as at the insertion of a tendon (enthesitis), over a tendon (tendinitis), or over a bursa (bursitis). With some types of bursitis (eg, olecranon, prepatellar), swelling and sometimes erythema may be localized at the bursa.

Rheumatoid Arthritis: Signs & Treatment


To diagnose rheumatoid arthritis, your doctor will examine your joints. He/she will do a full physical exam to look for other signs, symptoms or problems. There may be joints that don’t currently hurt but could be starting to be affected. Your doctor will assess the impact of the arthritis on your life and activities. The appearance of the hands and fingers helps to diagnose this type of arthritis.

X-rays will show certain characteristics of rheumatoid arthritis. These include narrowing of the joint space or erosions of the bone. If your doctor suspects rheumatoid arthritis, he or she may obtain blood tests to suggest the diagnosis. Some common labs that are ordered include erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP). These tests measure for any inflammation in the body. Some other tests include rheumatoid factor and anti-CCP antibody. These are more specific to rheumatoid arthritis. Other tests such as antinuclear antigen (ANA) or Lyme’s disease tests may be ordered to ensure something else is not causing the joint swelling or pain.


Rheumatoid arthritis is usually treated with medication. Typically, medications for this condition are prescribed by your primary care provider or a rheumatologist. There may be both oral and injectable medications. Some are considered disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs). Many of these medications are powerful in reducing inflammation and protecting the joints against irreversible injury. However, since they often act on the immune system, they have side effects that may put you at risk of infection. They must be monitored carefully by your health care provider. They are used when symptoms are severe and multiple joints are affected.

Steroid injections (also known as a cortisone shot) are sometimes helpful to manage a “flare” of rheumatoid arthritis when the new pain is limited to one or a few joints.

Surgery may be needed to relieve pain or improve function, but it is not needed in all cases of rheumatoid arthritis. Surgery is often used when medications have failed and the joint is chronically painful, stiff, deformed, or a tendon has ruptured. Less patients require surgery for rheumatoid arthritis now that better medications exist. By using medications prescribed by your doctor and treating this condition early, it often helps reduce the chance you will need surgery. Your rheumatologist and hand surgeon will work together to determine if and when surgery is needed. Surgery can be very effective to fuse or replace a joint or repair a tendon.

Finger pain: Causes, treatment, and self-care

Finger pain can affect joint mobility and impact a person’s ability to carry out everyday activities. Causes of finger pain can include injuries, infections, tendon problems, and arthritis.

In this article, we explore some of the potential causes of finger pain and their treatments.

We also cover when to see a doctor and some self-care tips for finger pain.

Injuries to the hands and fingers are common. This is particularly the case for people who play sports or those who regularly use heavy equipment or tools.

Causes can include:

  • falling on the hand
  • knocks and blows
  • jamming a finger
  • overextending the fingers or bending them too far backward

Injuries to the fingers can cause pain, swelling, and reduced mobility. In more severe cases, a person may dislocate or fracture a finger bone or damage a tendon or ligament.


A person can usually treat a minor finger injury using RICE therapy:

  • Rest. Avoid using the finger as much as possible until it has had time to heal. It may also help to immobilize the finger using a splint or by buddy taping it to a neighboring finger.
  • Ice. Apply an ice pack to the injured finger for up to 20 minutes several times per day. Ice packs can help reduce pain and swelling.
  • Compression. Wrap the injured finger snuggly, but not too tight to cause constriction of the blood vessels, in a soft dressing or bandage.
  • Elevation. Keeping the finger elevated above the level of the heart can help reduce swelling.

Taking over-the-counter (OTC) pain relief medications, such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and naproxen, may also help reduce pain and swelling.

People who suspect a fracture or dislocation should avoid moving the finger and seek prompt medical attention.

A trained healthcare professional will reset the bone and immobilize the finger to allow it to heal properly, which reduces the risk of further complications.

Trigger finger is the common name for a condition that doctors call stenosing tenosynovitis.

It can occur when the tendon sheath in the base of the finger becomes inflamed, causing the finger to lock or catch when a person tries to move it.

Symptoms of trigger finger can include:

  • pain and swelling at the base of the finger
  • difficulty bending or straightening the finger
  • a popping or catching sensation when trying to move the finger
  • finger stiffness

Symptoms of trigger finger may be worse when a person wakes up or after other long periods of inactivity.

Doctors do not fully understand what causes trigger finger, but hand injuries and certain medical conditions such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis may increase a person’s risk of developing it.


Treatment for trigger finger typically involves resting and immobilizing the finger, such as by using a splint. The doctor may also recommend doing some gentle exercises to stretch the finger, which may help reduce stiffness and improve mobility.

For people with more severe symptoms, a doctor may prescribe steroid injections to help reduce pain and inflammation. If other treatments are unsuccessful, a person may require surgery to release the tendon sheath.

Carpal tunnel syndrome affects the median nerve, which runs through the carpal tunnel in the wrist.

If the nerve becomes compressed or swollen within the tunnel, it can cause pain, tingling, and numbness in the hand and fingers. The pain may start in the fingers and radiate up the arm.

Symptoms may start gradually and worsen over time. Some people may also begin to experience weakness in the hand and difficulties gripping objects or performing precise movements.


Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome are often progressive, so it is important for a person to see a doctor.

Treatment depends on the severity of a person’s symptoms and can include:

  • wearing a brace or splint
  • making lifestyle changes, such as avoiding any activities that worsen symptoms and making adjustments to workstations
  • undergoing physical therapy
  • taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen and naproxen
  • receiving steroid injections

If symptoms do not improve, a doctor may suggest surgery to relieve pressure on the median nerve.

Share on PinterestGanglion cysts can cause pain or tingling.
Image credit: Macktheknifeau, 2014.

Ganglion cysts are fluid-filled lumps that can develop near joints or tendons in the wrists and hands, such as at the base of fingers. These lumps can vary in size and may feel soft or firm to the touch.

Ganglion cysts are usually harmless, but they can cause pain or tingling in some people.

Doctors do not currently know what causes ganglion cysts, but they can develop in people of any age.


Ganglion cysts tend to disappear on their own, and treatment is generally only necessary if the cysts are causing pain or reducing the mobility of the finger.

If ganglion cysts are causing problems, a doctor may recommend:

  • draining the cyst using a procedure called aspiration
  • surgically removing the cyst

Cuts and wounds on the hands or fingers can sometimes lead to infections.

Symptoms of a finger infection can include:

  • pain that worsens
  • swelling
  • skin flushing or warmth
  • pus or discharge from the cut or wound
  • feeling unwell
  • fever


Properly cleaning and dressing any cuts and wounds can help prevent infections.

People who suspect that their finger is infected should speak to a doctor. Without treatment, infections can sometimes lead to serious complications, such as cellulitis, abscess formation, or even sepsis.

Treatment depends on the type and severity of infection. A doctor may prescribe antibiotics for a person with a bacterial infection.

Osteoarthritis is “the most common form of arthritis.” It occurs when the cartilage that protects the ends of bones wears down. Osteoarthritis can affect any joint, but it most commonly affects the fingers and hands.

In the fingers, osteoarthritis can cause:

  • pain that may get worse with activity
  • swelling
  • skin flushing and tenderness
  • stiffness and reduced range of motion
  • bony knots near the finger joints

Osteoarthritis tends to develop gradually and may become worse over time. It is more common in older people and those who have experienced previous joint injuries.


People with osteoarthritis symptoms should see a doctor for an evaluation. While there is no cure for osteoarthritis, treatment can help relieve symptoms and improve mobility.

Treatment options for osteoarthritis include:

  • regularly exercising and stretching
  • managing weight
  • undergoing occupational and physical therapy
  • taking anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen and steroids
  • having surgery

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic condition wherein the immune system wrongly attacks healthy tissue in the lining of joints. This can cause pain, swelling, deformity, and stiffness.

Rheumatoid arthritis commonly affects the wrists and fingers, particularly the middle joints of the fingers, but it can also develop in other parts of the body.

Other symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis can include:

  • joints that are warm or tender to the touch
  • misshapen joints that may cause a bend in the fingers
  • numbness and tingling in the fingers
  • fatigue and a lack of energy
  • fever

The cause of rheumatoid arthritis is not clear, but it is more common in women than men and can sometimes run in families.


People with symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis should see a doctor. There is no cure for this condition, so the aim of treatment is to relieve symptoms and prevent joint damage.

Treatment options for rheumatoid arthritis may include:

  • taking anti-inflammatory medications
  • taking immunosuppressant medications
  • undergoing physical and occupational therapy
  • trying complementary therapies such as yoga, massage, and acupuncture
  • having surgery

Dupuytren’s contracture is the thickening of the tissues in the palm of the hand.

This thickening can lead to the formation of nodules and cords that can reduce movement and may cause the fingers to bend toward the palm.

Other symptoms can include:

  • discomfort or pain in the fingers or palm with use
  • lumps and pits beneath the palm
  • not being able to place the hand flat against a surface
  • difficulty using the hands

It is not clear what causes Dupuytren’s contracture, but it mainly occurs in males aged 40 or older of European descent. Symptoms tend to gradually get worse over time.


People with mild symptoms may not require treatment. However, for more severe symptoms, a doctor may recommend surgery to remove the cords to allow the fingers to straighten.

A person should see a doctor for any pain that impacts their ability to carry out their daily activities or job. It is important for people to seek prompt medical attention for suspected fractures, dislocations, and wound infections.

To diagnose the cause of finger pain, a doctor will typically review a person’s symptoms and medical history and conduct a physical examination of the affected finger.

They may also order imaging and blood tests to help with their diagnosis.

Self-care measures for finger pain may include:

  • applying an ice pack to the affected area for up to 20 minutes at a time
  • resting the finger as much as possible
  • protecting and immobilizing the affected finger using a splint or by buddy taping it
  • keeping the finger elevated above the level of the heart to reduce swelling
  • taking OTC pain relievers, such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and naproxen

Finger pain is often the result of minor injuries. People can often treat finger pain at home with rest and immobilization.

However, severe, worsening, or recurring pain may be the sign of a more serious injury or an underlying condition.

Possible causes of finger pain include tendon conditions, arthritis, ganglion cysts, and infections.

A person should see a doctor for finger pain or symptoms that impact a person’s daily activities. They should also seek prompt medical attention if they suspect a fracture, dislocation, or wound infection.

What does it feel like? Causes and treatment

Arthritis is a condition that causes inflammation in the joints, including those in the hands and fingers. Symptoms of arthritis in the hands and fingers include pain and stiffness.

This article will examine the symptoms of arthritis in the fingers. It will also provide information on exercises and treatments that can offer symptom relief.

The sections below will describe 12 symptoms that someone with arthritis in the fingers may experience:


Pain is a common early symptom of arthritis in the hands and fingers. This tends to be a dull, burning pain.

The pain is often worse after activities that require the use of the finger joints. For example, activities that require grasping or gripping an object may exacerbate it.


Joints may swell with overuse. Sometimes, the swelling can get so bad that it limits a person’s use of their hand and fingers.

The skin around the finger joints may also look red and puffy, and it might hurt to touch the area.

Warm to the touch

Swelling can also cause the joints to feel warm to the touch. This happens as a result of inflammation.


The joints of the fingers may feel stiff, and people may have trouble moving their fingers freely.

This can be particularly debilitating, as the stiffness may reduce the person’s range of motion in the fingers. This may cause them to find it difficult to grasp objects.

Bending of the middle joint

People with severe arthritis may experience irregularities in the finger joints.

One specific type is the Boutonniere deformity. Fingers with this kind of irregularity will bend at the middle joint.

Numbness and tingling

Tingling and numbness in the hands and fingers — particularly the first, second, and part of the third finger — is a symptom of carpal tunnel syndrome. Any tingling in the fourth and fifth finger is more likely to be due to ulnar nerve compression.

Carpal tunnel syndrome develops due to a pinched nerve in the wrist. It can happen as a result of arthritis, injury, or fluid buildup due to pregnancy.

Bumps in the fingers

Osteoarthritis can cause bumps to form on the fingers. Bouchard’s nodes form in the middle of the fingers, while Heberden’s nodes form at the ends of the fingers.


Some people may also experience weakness in the hands and fingers.

This makes it difficult to open jars or grasp objects. A person may also struggle to turn on faucets and turn a key in a door.


Some types of arthritis, such as psoriatic arthritis, may cause a rash that can affect the hands.

This rash will be flaky and scale-like and may present alongside swelling.

Nail changes

Some people with psoriatic arthritis may experience a change in the appearance of their nails.

This may include thickening of the nail and pits in the nail. Sometimes, the nails may separate from the nail bed.

Cold fingers

Some people with immune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus may develop Raynaud’s phenomenon. This condition causes discoloration in the fingers and increased sensitivity to cold temperatures.

It is worth noting that stress and cold temperatures can also trigger Raynaud’s phenomenon.

Audible noises

When there is cartilage damage in the finger joints, a person may hear audible grating or grinding noises. This is known as crepitus.

Learn more about joint sounds and what they mean here.

Hand and finger exercises may provide relief from pain and stiffness, and they may also improve hand movement. However, one 2017 study suggests that people should continuously practice the exercises, as the beneficial effects can wear off with time.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend avoiding activities that put strain on the joints. Low impact exercises are a better option for people with arthritis. It is also a good idea to stay away from repetitive movements and motions that twist the joints.

People should try to perform these exercises several times per day, but they should stop if they feel any discomfort or pain.

Here are a few exercises for arthritis in the fingers:

  • Making a fist: Start with the fingers straight, then bend them into a fist with the thumb on the outside. Avoid squeezing too tight. Keep the fingers in a fist for a few seconds, then release and repeat.
  • Thumb bends: This exercise helps with mobility in people with very stiff thumbs. To perform this exercise, bend the thumb toward the palm. Reach as far as possible and hold the position. Release, then repeat.
  • Finger bends: This exercise involves bending each finger onto the palm. Bend one finger at a time. Hold each position a few seconds, then release and repeat with the next finger.
  • Squeezes: To relieve stiffness in the fingers, gently squeeze a stress ball.
  • Finger and hand shapes: To increase mobility and reduce stiffness in the fingers, move the fingers into “O” or “C” shapes. Hold the shape for a few seconds, then release and repeat.
  • Finger lifts: This exercise involves putting the palms flat on a surface and gently spreading the fingers. Then, one at a time, lift each finger off the surface. Slowly lower each finger back down and repeat with the next one.

Treatment will depend on the kind of arthritis a person has, as well as its severity. However, it usually involves one or more of the following options:

  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs): NSAIDs can help reduce swelling, inflammation, and pain. They are available to take both orally and topically.
  • Steroid injections: A doctor may administer corticosteroid injections when NSAIDs do not work or are not suitable.
  • Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs): Doctors may treat rheumatoid arthritis with specific drugs called DMARDs. These can help with autoimmune conditions.
  • Splinting: Using a splint can help support and reduce stress on the joints. Typically, splints still allow people to move and use their fingers. People with arthritis in the fingers can use a ring splint for support.
  • Surgery: If the joint damage is very severe, surgery may be the only treatment option. Joint replacements relieve pain and restore the function of the joint, whereas joint fusions relieve pain but eliminate joint function.

According to the CDC, some known causes and risk factors associated with arthritis include:

  • Injury: Repetitive activities and acute injuries can cause joint damage and lead to arthritis.
  • Smoking: People who smoke have a higher risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Infection: Certain infections may cause joint damage and lead to arthritis.
  • Age: Older adults are at higher risk of developing arthritis.
  • Sex: Several types of arthritis are more common in females than in males.

The CDC suggest that people talk to their doctor if they experience any symptoms of arthritis.

Getting a diagnosis as early as possible can help the doctor put together a treatment plan before the symptoms get worse. Without treatment, arthritis can cause lasting joint damage.

A person should see their doctor if joint pain and swelling do not go away and symptoms recur throughout the month.

A person’s outlook depends on the type of arthritis they have. However, it is possible to treat and manage the symptoms of the condition.

There is currently no cure for arthritis. It is a chronic condition, which means that it requires long-term management.

That said, there are plenty of treatment options that can help reduce arthritis-related pain, swelling, and inflammation.

It is possible for a person to decrease their risk of developing arthritis in the hands and fingers by:

  • taking care of the hands and fingers after sustaining any injuries
  • exercising the hands regularly
  • stopping smoking

Arthritis in the hands and fingers is a painful condition, and people who do not seek treatment early on may experience a loss of mobility and joint function. In severe cases, joint irregularities can also occur.

However, there are many treatment options available, including steroid injections, medications, and finger exercises.

If a person suspects that they have arthritis in the hands or fingers, they should see a doctor for diagnosis. Prompt diagnosis and treatment can slow disease progression and help with painful symptoms such as swelling and inflammation.

Osteoarthritis – Symptoms – NHS

The main symptoms of osteoarthritis are pain and stiffness in your joints, which can make it difficult to move the affected joints and do certain activities.

The symptoms may come and go in episodes, which can be related to your activity levels and even the weather. In more severe cases, the symptoms can be continuous.

You should see your GP if you have persistent symptoms of osteoarthritis so they can confirm the diagnosis and prescribe any necessary treatment.

Other symptoms you or your doctor may notice include:

  • joint tenderness
  • increased pain and stiffness when you have not moved your joints for a while
  • joints appearing slightly larger or more “knobbly” than usual
  • a grating or crackling sound or sensation in your joints
  • limited range of movement in your joints
  • weakness and muscle wasting (loss of muscle bulk)

Osteoarthritis can affect any joint in the body, but the most common areas affected are the knees, hips and small joints in the hands. Often, you’ll only experience symptoms in 1 joint, or a few joints at any 1 time.

Osteoarthritis of the knee

If you have osteoarthritis in your knees, both your knees will usually be affected over time, unless it occurred as the result of an injury or another condition affecting only 1 knee.

Your knees may be most painful when you walk, particularly when walking up or down hills or stairs.

Sometimes, your knees may “give way” beneath you or make it difficult to straighten your legs. You may also hear a soft, grating sound when you move the affected joint.

Osteoarthritis of the hip

Osteoarthritis in your hips often causes difficulty moving your hip joints. For example, you may find it difficult to put your shoes and socks on or to get in and out of a car.

You’ll also usually have pain in the groin or outside the hip. This is often worse when you move the hip joints, although it can also affect you when you’re resting or sleeping.

Osteoarthritis of the hand

Osteoarthritis often affects three main areas of your hand:

  • the base of your thumb
  • the joints closest to your fingertips
  • the middle joints of your fingers

Your fingers may become stiff, painful and swollen and you may develop bumps on your finger joints. Over time, the pain may decrease and eventually disappear altogether, although the bumps and swelling can remain.

Your fingers may bend sideways slightly at your affected joints or you may develop painful cysts (fluid-filled lumps) on the backs of your fingers.

In some cases, you may also develop a bump at the base of your thumb where it joins your wrist. This can be painful and you may find it difficult to perform some manual tasks, such as writing, opening jars or turning keys.

90,000 what to do, reasons, how to treat

When the fingers of a child and an adult hurt and swell, this may indicate not only a joint disease, but also dysfunction of internal organs. Sometimes the cause of itching and swelling lies in injuries that have been received earlier. The patient often has swelling of the index, middle or little fingers. It is required to contact a doctor who will find out the source of the violation and tell you how to remove the swelling in the upper limb.

Why fingers swell: the main reasons

Hormonal failure

If the phalanx swells on the little finger, middle and other fingers, then these are signs of hormonal changes in the body.For this reason, the fingers on the hands of adolescents at the stage of puberty are often enlarged and itchy. Such a violation is not uncommon for women in position and patients during menopause. Pain and swelling due to hormones is common in the elderly.

Disease of degenerative-dystrophic nature

How is arthritis manifested?

Swollen fingers are sometimes associated with an inflammatory reaction in the small and large joints. Such a disease in the area of ​​the hands is especially acute.Against the background of arthritis, the middle and ring fingers swell. They can grow in size and turn red. The disease is accompanied by swelling of the arms and legs, as a result of which the limb does not bend completely. In addition to swelling, the patient observes other disorders:

  • the skin at the site of the lesion turns blue;
  • The hand hurts a lot, especially when moving;
  • movable joints are modified; 90 022 90 021 fingers become wide;
  • activity is disrupted.

Signs of arthrosis

Difference between healthy and arthrosis-affected joints.

If the swelling and reddening of the index or other finger on the hand, then this may indicate damage to the small joints near the phalanges. Swelling is associated with nodules that have formed under the skin. The growths cause the joints to become inflamed and itchy. In addition, other manifestations disturb:

  • pain in fingers;
  • pathological crunches and clicks during movements;
  • seals near movable joints;
  • change in color of the epidermis;
  • reduced sensitivity.

Features of gout

When the joints of the middle, thumb or little finger on the hand turn blue, swell and hurt, this signals a gouty disease. The disease progresses rapidly and damages all movable joints. A few hours after the onset of the attack, the patient complains that his fingers have swelled, swollen and hurt. At night, pathological manifestations intensify and are not always amenable to the action of medications. A person notices that a tumor has appeared on the hands – tofus.And also with gout, other symptoms occur:

  • swelling of soft tissues;
  • redness and burning sensation at the site of the lesion;
  • increase in uric acid;
  • impaired motor ability;
  • high temperature – over 39 degrees.

    Swelling of the joint on the finger: infectious, rheumatoid arthritis

    Many people sometimes have problems with their hands: their hands become swollen, they are very spoiled by twisted fingers with thickened, inflamed joints. The fingers become gnarled and the hand looks prematurely aged.How to understand why the joint of the index finger is swollen, and what is the treatment and prevention of the disease?

    Arthritis is an insidious disease

    Joint and muscle ailments are familiar to many people. They are based on arthritis – an inflammatory process in the articular tissue. There are many options for the disease, but the joints of the fingers are more often affected.

    Certain types of the disease are acute, accompanied by dangerous complications. About 2% of the population note a lack of improvement in health after the use of pharmaceutical ointments and drugs.

    Articular cartilage located on the fingers becomes thinner with age, dries up, cracks, and the bones of the fingers are deprived of any protection.

    The joints become ossified, their mobility decreases. Arthritis progresses rapidly, affecting one finger joint after the other.

    Forms of the inflammatory process affecting the joints

    Physicians consider several types of arthritis affecting the joints of the fingers. In patients with a violation of fat metabolism, one or more joints become inflamed, and the cholesterol content rises to 15 mol / l.

    Arthritis affecting the joint of the index finger is divided into several types:

    • infectious;
    • traumatic;
    • rheumatoid;
    • lipid;
    • osteoarthritis;
    • exchangeable;
    • dystrophic.

    Traumatic destruction and transformation of finger joints occurs after repeated trauma. With physical overstrain, joint damage occurs, accompanied by the appearance of clinical signs of inflammation.

    Infectious arthritis of the joints of the fingers on the hand is caused by intestinal, urinary pathogens and develops as a reactive process.

    Often, an infection of the joints appears in a patient after an attack of rheumatoid arthritis. A similar type of pathology is observed in patients with gonorrhea and AIDS.

    People with disabilities in the sexual sphere and suffering from concomitant diseases suffer from the disease:

    90,020 90,021 persons with homosexual orientation;

    90,021 cancer patients;

    90,021 drug addicts;

    90,021 alcohol abusers;

    90,021 patients with lupus erythematosus;

  • diabetics.
  • Septic damage to the joints is a severe infectious process in which the joint on the finger hurts, reddens, swells, and loses its mobility.

    Septic arthritis is accompanied by a violation of the general condition of the patient:

    • a persistent rise in temperature appears;
    • chills occur;
    • headache is growing.

    The picture shows the destroyed joint of the index finger

    In adults, all symptoms are concentrated in one joint, and in children, joints swell not only on the fingers, but also on the knee and shoulder joints.

    Septic arthritis often affects people who have undergone joint surgery. The cause of the onset of the disease is fungi, bacteria and viruses. Together with the blood stream, they penetrate into the tissues of the joint, but they can end up in it, moving from the focus of infection in the patient’s body.

    In children, the lesion occurs due to infection with gonococci from a sick mother or during manipulations.

    Staphylococci and influenza virus act as the causative agent of infectious arthritis.In the elderly, the septic process appears when Salmonella and protozoa are introduced into the cartilaginous tissue.

    The disease begins against the background of complete health or is expressed in the gradual appearance and increase of symptoms. The joint on the finger swells, there is soreness when touched, the skin at the site of inflammation is hot to the touch.

    The general condition of the patient suffers, and he has symptoms such as:

    90 020 90 021 increase in body temperature;

  • chills.
  • Bacteria that have filled the bloodstream are assimilated in the tissues of organs, forming foci of suppuration or causing sepsis in the patient’s body. Infectious arthritis contributes to the development of a formidable disease – osteoarthritis.

    In reactive infectious diseases of the joints of the fingers, it is difficult to detect pathogens in the periarticular sacs, therefore arthritis is allocated to the group of poorly studied diseases.

    Symptoms and methods of diagnosis of infectious inflammation of the joints of the fingers

    As soon as an insidious illness begins, the patient experiences a number of inconveniences:

    • acute joint pain;
    • 90,021 limitation of mobility;

    • swelling in the area of ​​inflammation;
    • tissue hyperemia;
    • forced position of the infected organ.

    In this case, urgent medical attention is required. Self-medication and therapy based on the advice of friends are unacceptable.

    To make a diagnosis, the doctor prescribes tests and a consultation with a rheumatologist. Treatment includes medication and physical therapy. The therapy is carried out for a long time, for several months.

    Apply the introduction of antibacterial drugs, use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, restorative therapy.

    In severe cases, with the formation of a purulent abscess, surgery is performed to remove pus, followed by the appointment of antibiotic therapy. When acute pain occurs, pain relievers can be used.

    The prognosis of infectious arthritis is favorable in case of early initiation of therapy, with the obligatory use of antibiotics. Death in septic lesions is possible with the appearance of complications and improper treatment of the patient.To prevent the appearance of infectious arthritis, it is necessary to lead a correct lifestyle, namely:

    • do not use drugs;
    • 90,021 refuse homosexual relationships;

    • treat venereal diseases in a timely manner.

    Formation and development of metabolic arthritis

    With age, a person develops many diseases: metabolic arthritis first occurs after 35 years. The first signs of the disease appear as a multitude of painful symptoms, accompanied by:

    • minor pain in the joints of the fingers;
    • by limiting their mobility and changing shape.

    The patient needs to adjust the diet, excluding hot spices, fried foods, sweet and fatty foods. The joint must be provided with peace, and the patient must take care of his psycho-emotional rest.

    In metabolic arthritis, destruction of the articular cartilage is observed, and the synovium undergoes sclerotic changes: the content of Hodraitin sharply decreases, the production of fibrous tissue protein – collagen, decreases. The content of lipids in the blood rises sharply.The articular fluid seems to “boil”, the cartilage loses its elasticity, its structure is distorted.

    At the beginning of the process, a person does not feel pain, since the cartilage is devoid of nerve endings. Over time, the bones in the finger joint come into contact with each other, become exposed, and the person begins to experience severe pain. The tendons surrounding the joint on the finger are slowly deformed and inflamed. As a result, the force of compression of the fingers of the hand decreases, and damage to the soft tissues around the joint occurs.

    All changes are based on two reasons:

    • violation of the internal environment of the body;
    • adverse effects on the joint.

    In many people, the inflammatory process is formed in connection with the constant load on the joints of the fingers of the hand, there is professional arthritis.

    There are two main stages in the development of the disease:

    • clinical picture of the precursors of the disease;
    • formed arthritis of the joints of the fingers of the hand.

    There is no pain in the pre-arthritis stage, but there is limited mobility and a slight crunching sound. In the second stage of the disease, overweight people experience pain that worsens at night or after physical exertion. The joints are stiff, there are swelling, pronounced crunch. There is a change in their shape due to the growth of the epiphyseal cartilage. The joints of the thumbs and the phalangoplus joints on the hand are most affected.

    It is impossible to completely cure arthritis, but there are remedies that alleviate the symptoms of the disease and slow down its progression.The doctor prescribes drugs for intra-articular injections, pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs. A balanced diet is maintained in which foods with a high protein content are predominant.

    Physiotherapy is the basis for the treatment and prevention of arthritis. Patients undergo a course of physiotherapy, massage, mud applications.

    Severe joint damage – rheumatoid arthritis

    Women are more susceptible to the disease.In the initial period of the disease, a person experiences slight pain in the phalangeal joints of the index and middle fingers. The finger thickens due to the formation of a site of tissue inflammation.

    The main distinguishing feature of rheumatoid arthritis is the symmetry of the joint lesions. Signs of inflammation persist for a long time for several months. The intensity of pain depends on the time of day: it intensifies at night, closer to morning.

    Physical training at the initial stages of the disease greatly facilitates the patient’s condition.In the morning, patients complain of a feeling of stiffness in the hands, numb joints. Over time, the patient’s hands form special nodules 2-3 cm in diameter.

    The general condition of a person suffering from arthritis suffers:

    • weakness is growing;
    • the temperature rises to subfebrile numbers;
    • chills occur;
    • decreases body weight.

    The clinical picture is presented by changes in the fingers and hands.The sore finger is fixed in the wrong position, deviates to the side. The skin on the affected organ becomes dry, pale, thin, and the muscles around it atrophy. Pain in the joints of the fingers of the hand is wavy in nature.

    If one or more joints on a finger are swollen, seek medical attention to improve the patient’s health. Self-medication leads to severe damage to the heart, liver, kidneys, and lungs.

    Treatment of arthritis is complex, aimed at the formation of stable remission and complete recovery of the patient.

    The most active damage to the joints of the fingers with rheumatoid arthritis is observed in patients with lipid metabolism disorders. Their cholesterol level rises, but the use of steroids changes the nature of the process, the positive dynamics grows, the risk of damage to the heart and blood vessels in rheumatoid arthritis decreases.

    Knots on the fingers are successfully treated with drugs containing glucosamine. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil are used to reduce inflammation.To eliminate discomfort in the joint of the finger, thermal procedures are used.

    Diseases of the finger joints are easier to prevent than to cure. By enriching the body with the necessary substances and observing a healthy lifestyle, it is possible to increase the result of treatment and avoid the formidable complications of the disease.

    Swelling of the finger on the hand | The network of clinics “Hello!”

    Swollen fingers are among the fairly common phenomena that are common among people of different age groups.The appearance of swelling, as well as painful sensations, can indicate the appearance of various kinds of diseases in the human body. And so that the symptoms do not bother anymore, it is necessary to establish why the fingers on the hands swell and hurt.

    The first step is to contact a specialist for a survey.

    Often women may notice that the middle finger on the hand is swollen and sore where they wear a tight ring. There is a violation of the outflow of lymph and circulation of blood cells, which causes swelling below the compression zone.In pregnant women, such symptoms may appear due to early toxicosis and increased load on the kidneys.

    Failure to balance water in the body can cause edema in summer. The human body tries to retain as much fluid as possible due to insufficient consumption of ordinary water, which is replaced by other drinks.

    Causes of all trouble

    Injury is the most common cause of finger swelling. In this case, along with edema, symptoms such as pain, hematoma, bleeding, and difficulty in mobility can be observed.A bruise, cut, sprain, dislocation, fracture, or burn can cause the phalanges of the fingers to hurt and swell. In addition, an insect bite can also be the culprit for edema.

    It seems that for no particular reason the finger is swollen and hurts, but such symptoms can be associated with various forms of arthritis (infectious, post-traumatic, rheumatoid, metabolic and postoperative). It should also be noted that the joints can be susceptible to osteoarthritis or degenerative tissue damage.Symptoms of the above diseases are accompanied by the appearance of swelling of the entire hand, an increase in temperature (at the site of the affected area, less often the whole body), as well as redness of the skin areas. There are cases when in men at a young age psoriasis (chronic skin inflammation), as well as ankylosing spondylitis (characterized by damage to the joints in the sacroiliac joints and the spine) are found together with rheumatoid arthritis. In this case, both hands and only one of them can fall under the influence of a pathological factor.

    Symptoms of reactive arthritis, which appears after the transfer of infectious diseases (genitourinary, intestinal, nasopharyngeal), may be swollen and reddened fingers on the upper and lower extremities. Arthrosis, in which the destruction of the cartilaginous lining between the joints and the appearance of osteophytes (bone growths) occurs, is accompanied by the fact that the thumb on the hand, and in particular the bone on it, swells and hurts. Cancer processes in tissues are also capable of causing a tumor, these include:

    • melanoma,
    • basilio,
    • nevus.

    Meanwhile, as clinical practice shows, it is rare to find neoplasms of bone tissue on the upper extremities.

    Accompanying the tumor with symptoms of intoxication (headache, vomiting, chills, nausea, high fever, thirst) may indicate the presence of erysipelas. The disease appears when the immune system decreases and group B streptococcus develops. There is reddening of the skin in the affected area, when touched, there is a heat and painful sensations appear.

    In contact dermatitis, it swells in a specific place on the finger. This usually happens when the bracelet of the watch is very close to the hand or the material of the accessory causes an allergic reaction. Swelling on the fingers can also result from cold allergies, which are characterized by swelling, itching, and red spots.

    Spasm in the blood vessels of the hands, which appears as a result of exposure to negative temperatures or an increased level of stress, is called Raynaud’s syndrome.Reversible discomfort appears in the form of a change in skin color (first it turns white, then turns blue and red), which are provoked by a decrease in blood circulation and its subsequent normalization. Because of this, swelling is observed, a burning sensation and pain are felt.

    True in diagnostics …

    At the first stage of diagnosis, a visual examination and collection of anamnesis is carried out, followed by a number of studies, which include

    • general and biochemical analysis of blood and urine;
    • radiography;
    • Ultrasound, MRI and CT.

    If you suspect the development of oncology, a biopsy may be prescribed for further more accurate examination under a microscope.

    … and the essence of treatment is

    When the reasons for the swollen and sore fingers on the hands have been established, the patient is prescribed symptomatic and pathogenetic (the purpose of which is to eliminate the cause itself) drugs, which include analgesics, NSAIDs, antihistamines, antibiotics, diuretics, chondroprotectors. Medicines containing synthetic hormones are prescribed to people with hormonal imbalance.

    When fingers are swollen and joints hurt, treatment may include complex therapy with physiotherapy (ultrahigh frequency, centimeter, ultraviolet therapy, electrophoresis).

    Surgical methods – in case of emergency

    The operation will become necessary in the presence of an open fracture, damage to the ligaments or severe injury. An indication for surgical intervention can also serve as panaritium. To cope with this disease, it is imperative to eliminate the inflamed focus with pus, thoroughly clean the cavity with the infection and apply stitches.After the operation, it is necessary to do dressings, take antibiotics and anti-inflammatory.

    The operation may be required if the cartilage and surfaces of the joints are severely damaged in the late stages of arthritis or arthrosis, while the fingers are swollen, do not bend and hurt. In especially severe cases, arthroplasty is prescribed, when a worn out joint is replaced with an artificial one.

    Surgical intervention can be performed in the presence of a malignant tumor. The oncologist prepares an individual therapy program for each patient.

    90,000 fingers are in danger / News of the Society of Krasnoyarsk and Krasnoyarsk Territory / Newslab.Ru

    There are many diseases that can lead to hospitalization in a surgical hospital. There, among the patients, bedridden after severe operations and injuries, one can also find very healthy-looking patients, whose only sign of illness is … a bandaged finger on their hand. What kind of disease is this, in which the defeat of only one finger (usually the thumb, index or middle) can lead to disability, and in rare cases – even threaten a person’s life?

    Panaritium (aka the popular nail or hair eater) is an acute purulent inflammation of the tissues of the fingers.The disease begins with the banal penetration of the infection under the skin: through a small cut, a wound left after a torn barb, a splinter, a bite or a scratch. The risk of “earning” felon is greater for those who work in the workplace (occupational injury), but potentially any person, regardless of gender, age and occupation, can develop this disease.

    The fact that purulent inflammation of the finger is a very dangerous condition is explained by the peculiarities of the anatomical structure: on this small part of the body there are many functionally important formations (tendons, tendon sheaths, blood vessels, nerves, muscles, joints).The subcutaneous fat on the palmar surface of the finger has a lobular structure: the connective tissue connects the skin of the finger with the periosteum of the phalanx. This contributes, on the one hand, to the delimitation of the inflammatory process along the finger, on the other hand, to its spread deep into the periosteum, to the tendons and joints.

    Depending on the “epicenter” of inflammation, panaritiums are divided into cutaneous, periungual, subungual, subcutaneous, bone, articular and tendon. With the progression of the process, all anatomical formations of the finger can become inflamed, and then panaritium will be called “pandactylitis”.

    The main symptom of the developing panaritium is “twitching” pain, usually most pronounced in the center of the purulent focus, especially if it is located on the palmar surface of the finger, where the tissues are dense and abundantly supplied with nerve endings. The intensity of pain depends on the stage of the inflammatory process; it is aggravated by finger movement and may even deprive you of sleep. There is always an increase in temperature over the site of inflammation and edema, as a rule, more pronounced on the dorsum of the finger.The redness of the skin is usually mild. The function of the finger and hand is impaired.

    The danger of panaritium is that in the absence of the necessary treatment, the process can move from one formation to another, up to damage to the lymphatic vessels of the finger, through which the infection can spread outside the hand and lead to general inflammation and even sepsis. In less serious cases, persistent dysfunction of the finger, up to irreversible, is possible – for example, with purulent fusion of the bones of the phalanges or deformation of the joints between them.

    It is because of the seeming “frivolity” of the problem that patients often postpone a visit to the doctor until the last, while the aggravation of the process affects the prognosis of treatment. And if in the early stages of panaritium therapy consists in the imposition of semi-alcohol dressings, physiotherapy and the appointment of antibiotics, then in the event of complications, an operation is required. It consists in opening a purulent focus, cleaning the wound and installing rubber drains, through which pus will subsequently come out.If the tissue around the nail is involved in the inflammation, it may be removed. In severe cases (for example, with complicated pandactylitis), the finger is sometimes amputated.

    It is very important to consult a doctor in a timely manner (in case of intense pain, which sometimes interferes with night sleep, or better yet earlier). You cannot treat felon with “home” means and methods, for example, by piercing the wall of a purulent bladder visible under the skin. If the inflammatory process is located deeply, the opening of the so-called “cufflink abscess” does not lead to the elimination of the infection, but only complicates the process.Moreover, attempts to self-medicate with such means as ointments, warming compresses, etc. are unacceptable.

    Thus, even the smallest finger injury can turn into serious troubles. You can avoid them without forgetting about the elementary rules: disinfection of the wound surface with iodine or brilliant green, applying a bactericidal plaster, careful hand hygiene and using only your own manicure tools.
