I haven't experienced finger joint pain, but I do have pain in my wrist. It's swollen and hurts when I move it certain ways. Doctor says it's strained with a touch of tendonitis and probably happened because I was holding baby a certain way. They can't give me steroid shots because I'm breasfeeding so basically they just sent me home with a splint. The splint is totally impractical for holding the baby during the day but I wear it at night and it's helped with the pain somewhat. You should go to the doctor so they can do x-rays just to make sure nothing is broken - they did x-rays on me and that's how they could tell it was just strained. I've been dealing with this for almost 3 months and I don't know if it will get completely better until I stop breastfeeding but the nighttime splint makes it much better even during the day when I'm not wearing it.
