A 22-year-old female asked:

May be trigger thumb: The two most common causes pain in the joints of the thumb are stenosing tenosynovitis or trigger thumb and arthritis at the base of the thumb. At your young age, and with symptoms of locking, it's much more likely that this is due to a trigger thumb. This can often be treated simply with a splint at night or a steroid injection. You should see a hand specialist for evaluation. \.

LIkely carpal tunnel: At nineteen, it's unlikely that you have arthritis. However, symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, such as pain, stiffness, and numbness, are common during pregnancy, especially in the third trimester. Symptoms can be managed with night-time wrist brace and sometimes with a steroid injection. Fortunately, the condition usually resolves after deliver of the child.

See a physician: Unfortunately, that is not nearly enough information to hazard a diagnosis, even via health tap. The location of the pain is an important clue to the diagnosis as well as any associated injuries or exacerbating conditions. An evaluation by a qualified hand specialist would be helpful.
