Hi Lisa, will you feel better during the daytime? I am thinking you have to go to the hospital for a preliminary check. See a rheumatologist. Possible causes are osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, etc.. Or it might be an early sign of other autoimmune disease. Therefore, an autoantibody panel is necessary.

The pain is in the tip of finger or the joint or the skin? If it is the joint, it may be caused by gout, osteoarthritis, etc.. If it is in the skin, it may be caused by nerve injury. If your finger appears white, it may be caused by vascular disease. Since you pain is severe, you are suggested to see a doctor for diagnosis and treatment ASAP.
