Finger pain down to the forearm

Question: Finger pain down to the forearm

Hi,
So yesterday I was bouldering and during a particularly hard problem, I fell down. Nothing special, no snapping sound or finger twist, just pain which came in for no apparent reason.
I hurt my left hand ring finger. The finger itself doesn't hurt and there's no apparent mark of swelling but the tendon/ligament inside hurts all the way down to my forearm when I pull with the tip of my fingers.
I can't really pull any hard on it anymore though I can painlessly move my finger around. The pain goes down a bit over halfway down my forearm.
I need to train for next winter competitions, so it anyone can tell me what it is I have and what to do, I would really appreciate it!
Thanks!
