With the x-rays showing no break, that baffles me...However, if you are older, age sets in...Knuckles will swell and become painful...I saw this in my Father years ago...I hope it heals itself...

Injury left hand
Thanks Caroline for replying.Because of the time that has lapsed , the pain and deformity to knuckles and middle finger, I think there must be an injury to the tendons perhaps and I had better arrange to see someone privayely , as up to now no one including various GP'S physios etc have been able to sort it.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its due to nerve impingement and tendinitis.
I would suggest you to take pregabalin and
diclofenac sodium to combat this problem.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
