Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
You seem to be suffering from Acute Muscular pain.
I would advise you to get a X-ray of hand to rule out any fracture of the finger bone.
For acute muscular pain I advise following:
1. A combination of pain killer and muscle relaxant containing Diclofenac and Thiocolchicoside.
2. To do hot fomentation of the affected area.
3. To apply Diclofenac ointment locally.
4. To get physiotherapy done particularly Ultrasonic heat massage.
Your pain would start getting better in 5 days.
Share my opinion with your doctor before you act upon it.
I hope it helps.
