Hand pain can be the result of a condition that has developed over time, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis, or of a recent finger injury from an accidental fall, such as a fracture or jam.

In some cases, and if not detected early, conditions such as carpal tunnel, pressure caused by repetitive motions on the median nerve, may create severe pain in any of these areas:  fingers, thumb, hand, and forearm.

Hand Xray WristThe most frequent causes of pain in the hand can be related to a condition that has transpired over time.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms of hand pain, it may be time to seek medical treatment from a hand doctor.

  • Increased hand and arm pain
  • Finger joint pain when carrying, gripping, grasping, or twisting objects
  • Swelling and discomfort in the hand or around the affected joint
  • Changes in the surrounding joints – If you are experiencing thumb joint pain, your neighboring finger joints may become more mobile than normal
  • Your hand, palm, and fingers may feel warm or appear red in color
  • Hand numbness, tingling or throbbing while resting or sleeping
  • A sensation of grating or grinding in the affected joint – this is caused by damaged cartilage
  • Developing cysts on the end joints of your fingers – this is caused by conditions such as arthritis
