Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,

Welcome to health care magic forum. I am dr aslam here to help you.

From your description, it seems like trigger finger itself.

Anyhow we have to confirm this by physical examination. Treatment of trigger finger includes splinting, application of moist heat and anti inflammatory drugs as needed.

When this fails to control the symptoms, another option is to inject steroid into the tendon sheath. If this also fails, we have to undergo a minor surgery.

A orthopedist can guide you through this.

Hope I have answered your query.

Thank you.
