Sore finger, severe pain in wrist, forearm, elbow. X-rays, ultrasound normal. Suggestions?

Hi, For a while I ve had a very sore little finger , the tip of my finger constantly is in pain when I touch it or hit it on something the pain is unbearable. More recently I ve been experiencing pain in my wrist , forearm , elbow and shoulder. Not sure if its related to my finger, I ve read it cold be connected. I have had ultra sounds and x rays but they have not shown anything. What should I do next? Thanks

Hi thanks for your question
You have sore finger and pain wrist and arm and elbow.
Most probably you have infection in you finger which is causing you pain and this pain is radiated to wrist ,arm and elbow.
You need treatment for infection of your finger along with some pain killer.
Ultra sound and X Ray will not show infection in finger.
Hope this answers your question.
