[/edit] Whoa, I got a lot of replies on this and some of the suggestions helped.
I took it easy over the weekend and Monday and it's not so bad now, along with painkillers for inflammation. I still have some residual pain in the ring/pinky fingers when fully closed, but I can do anything not involving a closed fist or holding something heavy in that hand, so I should be able to get by.
I'm having some difficulty closing my left hand into a fist or bending my fingers too much, especially pink and ring fingers. I'm going to try to get a doctor's appointment next week and hope it doesn't worsen. So far, my only advice was from Slugbox to try black cherry extract.
I'm just glad it wasn't my right hand, but still ... it impacts my art digitally since I can't use keyboard shortcuts quite as quickly or as much. I was annoyed because my art block was lifting and I had some sketches and 3D renders ready, and it seems like nothing makes me want to do art more than not being able to do it or some obstacle.
If anyone has any suggestions, I'd like to hear them (besides taking Tylenol for the pain and inflammation)
