Painful Arthritis in Index Knuckle

I've had a very painful arthritic-like pain in the base knuckle of my right index finger. I've had this consistently now for the last 7 months. What can I do?
I don't have any arthritic pain any where else like this - although I have noticed that if I sit a any long lenth of time (as I did recently in a class), I'm very stiff and sore when I get up to walk. I'm 56 yrs. old, 20 lbs over weight, self-diagnosed as a nux vomica sort of individual. Thanks.
Thanks.
