Question What could be causing this pain?

I am 25 years old. For the past 3 years I have had stiffness/pain in the middle joint of my left ring finger. It has since gotten much worse. I can push on the knuckles on my middle, ring, and pinkie fingers and I feel a terrible burning pain. The same thing is happening in the side of my hand as well, the bone that runs from my pinkie finger to my wrist. It never goes away, but it is much worse in the middle of the night. Also, those three fingers and that hand feel weak most of the time compared to my right hand and the fingers tend to be stiffer.

I went to my doctor a few months ago because someone thought I might be experiencing carpal tunnel (even though I can tell it's the bones). They sent me for a nerve test and it was negative. They also did blood work - SED rate and test for Rheumatoid Arthritis. Everything came back okay.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I am hoping that this is simple and there is a 'natural' remedy I can take to alleviate the pain.
