In brief: See an orthopedist
You should have it evaluated to rule out nerve entrapment problems involving the ulnar nerve in guyons canal, ligament or tendon inflammation/strains/tears or even subtle fractures.
Basic treatment consists of resting, use of a over the counter wrist splint, avoidance of painful activities, icing especially if re- irritated by ongoing activity, and use of anti-inflammatories.
