In brief: Tenosynovitis

Sounds like an acute inflammatory process involving the flexing tendon of your thumb.
Range of motion exercises, antiinflammatories will help. An injection may be necessary.

In brief: Get an X-ray

This could be a problem with your scaphoid.
If your scaphoid is ok, then it may simply be common arthritis near the base of your thumb.

In brief: Possible arthritis

Agree with dr. Villaplana in that it may be a tendonitis.
If it is not improving, i would also consider possible arthritis. This can be diagnosed with an x-ray by your hand surgeon.
