Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

This does not not look to be fibromyalgia, as pain of fibromyalgia is never acute and is distributed more widely like both sides of body and above and below. It is very slow in onset and is for very long time. Similarly it does not look to be carpal tunnel syndrome as that more is slow to occur, and pain is more in the outer half of the hand. This seems to me like an arthritis which can be due to so many reasons, such as virus, gout, autoimmune, so I would advise you should see your doctor to find out what could be the cause.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
Regards,
Dr. Mahboob Ur Rahman
