Knuckle pain

The past two times I've played drums my pointer, middle and ring finger's knuckles start hurting whenever the stick hits them. This is on the inside of my right hand. Is this normal or should I get this checked out?

My head hurts when i hit them with my sticks, tried playing with a base ball cap once, my sticks kept hitting the peak, had to turn the cap round back to front.

It could be your grip is not correct or maybe your holding the sticks too tight? if your hands or knuckles only give you trouble when your playing i would address your grip and technique first before thinking of anything physical/medical.

I get this sometimes in my right hand but for me its more my thumb knuckle and index finger. I find relaxing a little more helps.
