I am 47yo and have been a musician since I can remember. I play guitar. My left index finger has a lot of pain when I press on the stings. Does not feel like it's in the joint. More like something sharp and stabbing into the tip of the finger. It has made it almost impossible for me to play. There is no bruising or swelling. I don't have insurance, and low on funds. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Ric
