Full Crimp Ring Finger Pain

I'm really at a lost on my injury.

I was on a very technical crimpy route when I had my righthand in a full crimp and felt a sudden pain to my right ring finger. I shook it out and attempted the route some more, only noticing the pain in the midsection between the two joints when I went back to that full crimp position. It was definitely not a bone/joint/arthritis pain. Saw a doctor and took an xray - no fractures or brakes. They said stay off of it, ice it, etc.

That was five months ago.

Day-to-day I have no pain, but whenever I put my right ring finger in that full crimp position and hold it, I feel a surge of pain between the two joints in that midsection. It's isolated to the area and when I pull it out of the position, the pain almost stops immediately. There is slight inflammation on top of the finger that has receded in time - though still pronounced in comparison to the others.

I have a date with a specialist, but he's not available for weeks.

Any information helps.
