| | Help with "stuck" finger and deep knuckle pain
I am having problems with the ring finger on my left hand.
The symptoms started ~3 months ago when the tip of the finger became numb. The numbness has gone away now but when I try to make a fist that finger "sticks" in the curled position and is quite painful. When I straighten the finger there is a decided 'pop' (not audible but pronounced and easily felt). If I put pressure on the palm side of the knuckle (hand knuckle not finger knuckle) associated with that finger it is quite painful.
I would appreciate it if anyone could direct me to the correct area of these forums to ask more questions and reach a diagnosis.
