1 doctor agrees
In brief: Thumb arthritis
Yes this is most likely arthritis in the joint at the base of thumb.
You can try a NSAID otherwise you should get an xray.

In brief: Maybe
While arthritis is possible, tendinitis is a common cause of pain in that area.
You may want to get an opinion from a rheumatologist or orthopedist.
