In brief: Overuse

Do you have a job that requires a lot of repetitive motions? That could cause a carpal tunnel syndrome.

In brief: Tendon/lig/bone, etc

This could be anything from a tendon to a ligament to a bone fracture.
It seems to be more like a tendon or ligament issue because it improved with the brace. Itchy have been aggravated by a sharp, abrupt pull and likely needs the brace again, but it's smart to get it examined by your doctor to be sure it's this and ghat it isn't something else. Good luck.
