Over the past 6 months, the joint in my index finger on my right hand has been getting stiff. It was annoying, but liveable and so haven't been to see anyone about it.
Over the past week it got gradually worse until the other night, it felt as if there was a build up of pressure in the joint and i had to crack it. I didn't, and the next morning i was in agony with it. It's now day 2 and i'm still unable to move my finger. It doesn't look dislocated, but does look pretty swollen compared to my other index finger.
any ideas what this could be? Don't want to go to the hospital and waste anyones time..
Oh, and arthritis should be out of the question as i'm only 22,
Thanks in advance,
