Pain In The Back Of The Hand
Arthritis/Tendinitis: Crunching sounds with motion may occur with both arthritis or tendinitis. Irregularities in joint surfaces that occur with arthritis can lead to "crepitus" with motion.

Hand pain: The area between your thumb and index finger is an uncommon area to have a problem. The space between thumb and index finger is almost all muscle with a small amount of skin and subcutaneous fat.

If the pain is over the bone, you could have arthritis or fract.

Sharp shooting pain: This area on the back of your hand contains the tendon to extend your wrist, an area of skin supplied by the radial nerve, and the joint that connects your finger to your hand. You could have an injury to the joint or the tendon, causing a pain in that area, or you could have irritation of the radial nerve. The last of these should also cause tingling or numbness in that area.
