I have three swollen fingers,they are sensitive and I am unable to bend them all the way. They have been this way for over a month, anyone have any idea what this could be?

Arthritis can strike at any age and there are a lot of varieties of them. Did you hurt them anytime - jammed them on a door etc? Or do you use too much of the keyboard. I seriouslt suggest seeing a doctor for medical advice and not rely on the answers you get here or on any website.

Your swollen fingers could be a result of carpel tunnel syndrome... I had that in my wrist and it hurt and I could hardly type on here... I had to go get a muscle relaxing shot in my hand and it helped a lot...

Did you jam your fingers somehow?? Because I jammed my two middle fingers once when I tried to catch a ball but it hit the top of my fingers. They were swollen for about a month and a half.

Check out: http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/sym/swollen_finger.htm But don't go and believe that you have everything you read. Have it checked out by a professional.

I am only 22, so that can pretty much rule out arthritis, right?
