Thumb and wrist pain in left hand when wrist is bent forward (hand towards me). Pain located on the thumb side of the wrist only. What could this be?

DeQuervain's: This is tenosynovitis of the first dorsal compartment of the wrist. You have basically performed a finkelstein test. Go see your orthopaedic surgeon for evaluation and treatment.
