In brief: Tenosynovitis is a

likely diagnosis, but an actual diagnosis can't be given here.
Tenosynovitis can be treated with immobilization (splinting or taping) and ibuprofen taken every day for a week, until the inflammation goes down. Consider a HealthTap Concierge visit if symptoms persist. Seek immediate care if swelling, redness or fever occur, because an infection in this location can get "out of hand" quickly.
