Pain in knuckle on Crimping

I've had this problems pretty much continually for the last 2 years.

When I crimp down on a small enough hold the middle knuckle on my left hand middle finger gets painful and sore, and remains that way for several days thereafter. All the rest of my fingers feel fine working crimps.

I've given the problem as much as 6 months off, and when returning to climbing it springs right back up again.

The knuckle appears to be somewhat larger than the same knuckle on my right hand, and is tender to the touch.

Anyone had any success recovering from an injury like this? I really thought 6 months of rest would help it.

Edit: Meant to put this in the injury treatment/prevention area.
