    Why do I have a painful, swollen finger joint on my index finger?

    I have had joint pain in my right hand for two weeks. I can't bend my index finger, and the joint looks red and feels swollen. I also can't grasp anything without pain. Should I see my primary care physician or someone else? My other hand also started hurting, and I've been very tired. I feel like I'm moving in slow motion. No injury occured that I am aware of. I also have occasional numbness in my hand and arms.
