Swollen finger....What does it mean?

    I woke up today with one index finger swollen and painful. The only thing different I've been doing is taking Lyrica 50mg 2x a day. It's not listed as a common side effect so I don't think it's that.

    Anyone else with this problem?

    The first joint after the knuckle is sore to press on or squeeze from either side. The finger is swollen from the knuckle to the second joint, the one above the fingernail. I was wondering about gout also...couldn't that appear in fingers as well as the big toe?

    I suppose I'll have to call my rheumy tomorrow and see what he has to say.
