My right third finger started hurting at the farthest out

My right third finger started hurting at the farthest out joint early afternoon today. Quite red and painful. It hurts to bend and has sort of a throbbing ache. I just took an ibuprofen and am going to use ice and a popsicle stick to restrict movement. I'm healthy, don't have arthritis, lupus, etc. I don't see any sign of a bite. I've used it on the keyboard, not excessively, and put a ring over that finger earlier. Not tight. Any suggestions?

I broke my third metacarpal, it was just a hairline fracture. It happened last Saturday and the pain had been going away to where I could move mostly everything pain free. But earlier today I fell out of my truck when exiting and it starting to hurt when I move my fingers... Is there any chance I rebroke it? Or is it just pain from the impact?
