Need exam: An examination by an ORS( or a hand specialist )will give you your answer most likely. Differential diagnosis not knowing your age or injury mechanism would include: ligament injury( gamekeeper's), early arthritis , tendinitis ( dequervain's),nodular tenosynovitis( trigger thumb) among others. Best of Luck!
