    In the past I have had times where I get quick sharpe pains in my fingertips. It always went away but at times could happen for a few days. This may not be the same thing you are experiencing but mine almost seemed like it could have been a metal fragment from the strings. When I would play a note I would have to take my finger off the string right away due to the pain. Not sure if I was of any help.
