Sounds like you have a common condition called Dupytrans Contraction. Sometimes remedied with a steriod injection, sometimes requiring a surgery. See a hand surgeon (a subspecialty of Orthopedic Surgery) and you will find a solution.

To Whom It May Concern:
This could be anything, but if I were you, I'd go see an orthopedist and get x-rayed.
That way the doctor would tell you the diagnosis. I've had a similar experience with both my hands and I was diagnosed with CTS. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome> My hands lock up during sleep and are very painful, so its hard to sleep at night. This doctor was surgery happy. He wanted to do surgery right away. Instead I got a 2nd opinion. The 2nd doctor said that surgery would make it worse. So I'm stuck with this problem. So I hope for the best for you. Good luck.
