Have sore and swollen knuckle on left middle finger. Hard to bend. Arthritis?

About 1 1/2 months now I have had a real sore knuckle on my left middle finger that sometimes feel real stiff and hard to bend when I wake up in the morning and sometimes last all day. Feels swollen around the knuckle mostly on the sides of that knuckle. I am a 38 y.o. female. I do not recall any injury. But I don t remember if I ever hit it on anything... could it be arthritis?
