Default I gotta ask...is this arthritis??

Well, I am making gift tags for the ladies at my work and I just stamped out 36 stockings out with the cling mount stamps on a block with the little waves all over it. The ones that are supposed to be easier to grip. So, I am stamping away and went to change my ink colors and my middle finger, right where the first bend is (below my fingernail) was STUCK! Literally STUCK! It was bent and I could not move it. I had to actually take my OTHER hand and make it straight again It freaked me out a little but I got over it quickly and started with my new color. When I went to stop again...stuck again! Now it's sore. Is this what arthritis is? I am only 44 and did not think that I would have to worry about my joints until I was in my 60's at least...

Maybe it's nothing. Maybe it's "stampers finger" Has this ever happened to you?
