Stabbing pain on right side of right middle finger?
I recently shook hands with someone and felt an excruiating pain as if the tendon or a ligament burst near the mid knuckle or joint on the underside of my right middle finger. It produced a sharp pain and then a noticeable swelling on the bottom of that finger. I applied ice when I got home and the swelling subsided. Since then whenever I shake hands or grasp something tightly the same thing happens. On a slight different ailment; I was holding something tightly in my right hand that caused my fingers to be tightly clenched and experienced a sharp stabbing burning sensation near that same area, but now on the right side of my right middle finger between the tip and middle joint of that finger. While this is different then the previously mentioned pain on the bottom of my finger it is very near that same area. I noticed that there is a very visible and defined blood vessel running along that same area, but no visible blodd vessel like that on my left middle finger.  There is now a pea sized lump on the right side of the same finger right along the visible blood vessel. When I put any pressure at all on that spot it produces an acute sharp stabbing pain that resembles being stuck with a hot burning needle. Do I have a ruptured tendon/ligament? There's no discoloration or brusing, but there is that small raised area noticeable when I run another finger along the side of that middle finger and the underside of that finger still hurts when I shake hands or put pressure on that one finger. What could this be and what do I need to do?
Thanks,
