Can be due to trigger finger.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

The trouble in bending the middle finger can be due to a trigger finger or tendinitis.

Local steroid injections and physiotherapy and strapping are needed to correct this.

Do consult an Orthopedician for a direct examination and confirmation and proper prescription medicines.

I hope this answers your query.

Wishing you good health.
