Thumb pain: Pain at the joint of the base of the thumb is commonly seen in degenerative arthritis, but you are too young to be getting that. So, possibly you have a mild tendonitis, also overuse injury from computing or typing can lead to hand/wrist/finger pains from injuring the small bones of the hands or straining the ligaments in the hand/wrist.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you and your symptoms warrant evaluation by a physician. If Ibuprofen is not relieving the symptoms, it is particularly important for you to see your physician for an examination and may be some tests.
