In brief: Other possibilities

Include thumb extensor tendinitis and basal joint arthritis of the thumb.
Look these up online. Then see a board certified hand surgeon for a comprehensive evaluation.

In brief: Wrist

Sounds like de quervain's tenosynovitis.
Start with ice and a splint that immobilizes your wrist and thumb. If not improving, see your physician for a cortisone injection.
