Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
it sounds like you have a swollen joint in your finger. this could be because of an injury or possibly an inflammatory arthritis. you are doing the right thing in trying to regain and maintain your range of motion. antiinflammatory medication may be of benefit. I would still pursue a further opinion from the dr if the finger is not improving as the X-rays being normal does not mean that there is no problem with the joints in the finger.
