What Does A Swollen Middle Finger Indicate Despite Taking Ibuprofen?
Could be trigger finger or inflammation of the knuckle.
Hi I am Dr Gopal Goel Orthopedic Surgeon.
Going through your complain and since you are able to play piano and type, In my opinion you are suffering from trigger finger of middle finger or synovitis (inflammation) of the knuckle joint.
I suggest pain killers and hot fomentation. Please get CBC and S Uric Acid (Blood Tests) and X ray of the hand, if there is no improvement with 10 days of treatment.
Thanks for the question. Please feel free to ask any other question.
