Thanks for question posted .
I would be pleased to answer the same .

I would like to inform you that since you have a swelling and pain in the hand with stiffness , it sounds like you may have got arthritis and myositis.
This may be a part of an autoimmune reaction or infection . I would suggest you to XXXXXXX the doctor to start you on pain killers or antibiotics.
You might also need to get a ultrasonography done.
Thanks and take care
