Hi there. Honestly, your symptoms are vague and you need to be seen by a doc to get a dx and treatment plan. They could be cysts or related to arthritis or something like bursitis (though I have not heard of it in fingers, but just 'cause I have not heard of it does not mean that it can't happen!)
That said, have you tried applying ice or heat? What about a topical pain reliever like biofreeze or stoppain?
I have to ask, what kind of music do you play? Have anything we can listen to online?
Glad to have you in the community but sorry you are in pain and had to join us!
hi and thanks for the reply. haven't tried much as i'm kind of gunshy when it comes to my hands but it seems to be getting worse. i think the last cd project i did is online---i'll check and see. i play everything but i guess my favorite stuff is classical influenced rock and fusion of different things like blues and jazz. i'll be in touch and thanks again! gm
