Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
I would suggest you to get a hand x ray and take a opinion from an orthopaedic surgeon as so much pain and restricted movement are suggesting that it can be a fracture, if not very big then a hairline. I would also recommend you to apply ice take Brufen and splint finger till then.
