Just curious. I've got a problem where one finger (or thumb) will start to hurt and swell up a bit. I'll be hard to bend and impossible to use the digit. Pain can be very intense, even keeping me up at night. Then it tends to go away after a day or two...sometimes moving on to another finger. Often I'll put a splint on the finger to avoid using it till it gets better. It's horrible when it's a thumb, kinda makes that hand unusable. My Doc. wants to see it, but it never seems to be going on when I'm in his office. Had a big problem with it for awhile, nearly always had a finger out of commision, but these days it just seems to happen every now and then, not too often, so I don't worry about it much, but just this last Friday it happened again (right index finger, it's fine now).
