I have been having this constant pain in my left index finger joint. To be more precise, in my proximal inter-phalangeal joint. There is no swelling but the pain has been on and off for a while, coming up only when I stress my finger use. The stress is only by playing guitar. I tend to use all my fingers with equal pressure and yet it's only been my index finger that is constantly under pain. I don't think I injured my index finger by any means, so it'd be helpful if I could sort of put my finger on the problem :) :D i.e., if the reason could be pointed out.
