Joint pain in fingers

I am 48 years. Recently I have noticed I get joint pains in my fingers after washing clothes with my fingers and I find it a little difficult to clench my hands. It disappears after some days. It does not happen when I wash plates. Can anyone please explain this? And what is the remedy?

Finger pain can be caused by disease or injury affecting any of the structures in the finger including the bones, muscles, joints, tendons, blood vessels, or connective tissues.

Thanks Sam. I was afraid it is some aging symptom because it's never happened before until now.

Well yes, it may also be connected with growing older. And certainly if you've had a previous injury years back.

You could be having some signs of arthritis. However, let your doctor check it so you can get the right medications. If you are indeed positive with arthritis, there are medications available to give you relief. One of the most popular treatment is celebrex.
