my right hand ring finger started hurting about two months
may be stenosing tenosynovitis/trigger finger
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
It is possible that your symptoms are related to a condition called stenosing (narrowing) tenosynovitis (irritation of the tendon and its covering/sheath)- this is also called trigger finger.
It is due to thickening of the tendon in a part of the palm, this thickening therefore affects the ability of tendon to glide along its sheath. The exact reason for this change is not clear.
It can sometimes occur with persons with one or more of these conditions- diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, sarcoidosis (build up of something called granules in the body), hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone levels). These are some of the conditions that can occur with it, there are others.
In many persons there is no associated condition.
One or more steroid injection into the sheath around the tendon along with the use of a splint, can be very helpful in the majority of persons.
If this fails then surgical repair is considered
You may want to be assessed by your doctor to find the cause of your symptoms and determine if it is trigger finger
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
