My Thumb Hurts. What’s Wrong?
Thumbs are such wonderful things we generally just take them for granted. When they hurt is really when you notice just how much you use them. There are numerous conditions that can cause thumb pain and this blog will highlight four of the most common problems.

While this information may help you narrow down what might be wrong, we strongly recommend you seek the advice of a health care provider before attempting any treatment. Treating yourself for the wrong diagnosis can not only delay proper treatment, the wrong treatment may make the condition worse.

Four of the more common conditions that can cause thumb pain are:

  1. CMC joint arthritis
  2. deQuervain’s tenosynovitis
  3. Gamekeeper’s or Skier’s thumb
  4. Trigger thumb

The following chart is an easy-to-use tool to lead you to what might be the cause of your thumb pain. Answer the "Where does it hurt?" question in the chart to see what might be the cause of your thumb pain. Choose the "Learn More" button for more information about the condition, including possible treatment options. Click "Buy Now" if you are ready to purchase a 3-Point Products splint for your thumb.

Diagnosed as arthritis at base of thumb. but do not have pain there-have excruciating pain in my thumb itself. x rays show thinning bones there?
Posted @ Wednesday, October 31, 2012 6:49 PM by HELEN LOVE
I work in the nursing field and put on gloves constantly. My thumb hurts a lot from this motion. I think it sounds like deQuervain’s. has anyone ever had this problem? The pain is past the joint of the thumb connecting to the hand and it does hurt trying to touch my thumb towards my pinky.
Posted @ Thursday, January 10, 2013 2:45 PM by Unionchick
"Thank you for your inquiry. While obviously we cannot give you a diagnosis, it does sound as though you may be experiencing a tendinitis (inflamed tendon) or tenosynovitis (inflammation of the sheath that covers the tendon) in your thumb. This would be consistent with deQuervain’s. It is best to discuss this with your health care provider so you receive appropriate treatment. In the meantime, if you are able to take an anti-inflammatory medication such as aspirin or ibuprofen, you may try that and also use a cold pack on your thumb during the day as possible to reduce inflammation. A splint may be called for but it would be best to make certain your have a proper diagnosis and can then choose the proper splint.  
 
In the meantime, I will also suggest that you consider switching to either a powdered glove or a larger size glove on the hand you are experiencing the problem. This may lessen the stress on your thumb if you are changing gloves frequently."

i am Eder and i found out what my thumb was hurting now my parents are going to take me to the docter to cure my thumb. What i have was De Quervain's Tenosynovitis or mabye i have CMC (basal) Joint Arthritis
Posted @ Sunday, January 27, 2013 12:21 AM by eder
my doctor thinks i have de quervain's but after doing some research i don't think it is as i have no pain in my wrist and i can do the tests with no problems i think it may be the basal joint arthritis instead. i am waiting to see a physio do you think I should tell her i'm unsure of the diagnosis?
Posted @ Monday, February 11, 2013 12:58 PM by claire
Claire, Personally I think it's always a good idea to discuss questions or doubts you may have with any health care provider. The physio may be able to answer your questions. Otherwise you could consider going to another doctor for a 2nd opinion. 
Best of luck.

Both my roommate and I work for the airlines and handle hundreds of heavy bags and freight each day, while our jobs are the same the pain in our wrist/thumbs are different. I think I think I've got the beginnings of arthritis but my roommate's symptoms aren't fully described, she cannot bend her thumb at the 1st or 2nd joint so what's going on with her?
Posted @ Wednesday, March 06, 2013 12:52 PM by maryk
I have the same thing, can bend my thumb now after a few months, but pains on the ligament on the side of the thumb. I rub in wintergreen and wear a thumb brace and take Brufen, but it does not go away. I saw an OT at state hospital (I don't have medical insurance), the occupational therapist said it is "just wear and tear, old age" (I am only 58) and said something about arthritis for the rest of my life. I can't accept her assessment. I am sure it can be healed at home without surgery, if I am told what to do. Lorraine

Dear Ms. Belk, 
Thank you for your inquiry. I am sorry you are having problems with your thumb. Please know that we are not able to provide you with a diagnosis but can guide you to information that may be helpful. I will encourage you to read the conditions page about deQuervain’s tenosynovitis at http://www.3pointproducts.com/quervains-syndrome/ and look at the suggested splints on the bottom of this page. 
 
It is best if you can visit a physician or therapist trained in caring for hand conditions prior to determining treatment such as using a splint and taking over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications. Please know that while choosing an appropriate splint to rest your thumb and taking an anti-inflammatory drug may be helpful to relieve your symptoms, it is important to be properly treated to prevent a worsening of the condition.

I have been jokingly saying I have"iPod Thumb" 
Had no idea why intense thumb pain hit while driving to appt one day not yet two weeks ago. When I picked up my iPod an felt pain worsen, noticed how tightly I was gripping the device with my left hand to use keyboard, etc with right. I have changed my grasp but pain is constant. Going to MD today. May be the ligament issue since pain was sudden after probable misuse. Anyone else out there gripping iPod fiercely causing thumb pain? 
Thanks. Susan

I have been a Dental Assistant for 39 years. I had carpul tunnel surgery 12 years ago and have experienced trigger thumb and now Game Keepers thumb. I have been receiving cortizone injections to help relieve the pain and swelling for the last 4 years. I am having a right thumb fusion in a couple of weeks due to my right thumb instability. Are trigger thumb and gamekeeper's directly related to one another. In my job as a clinic Dental Assistant, there is constant lateral movement in my right thumb for suctioning and with the use of an Air/water syringe. Have been told it's not repetitive strain by Workman's  
Compensation. I am appealing the decision and need as much info as possible to do so. Can anyone help my cause? Thanks, Doreen
Posted @ Tuesday, May 21, 2013 7:54 AM by Doreen
I am reading about thumb pain. My pain isn't any of the 4 you mention, mine is in the joint, NOT the base. It seems random, not connected with ant movement or lack of movement, and does not affect the parts mentioned above (other than I can't use the thumb.) I just can't bend it, it gets so swollen, although I can easily bend it it at the base.
Posted @ Sunday, May 26, 2013 9:27 AM by Rusty
I don't seem to have any of the above symptoms and have been tested negative for carpel tunnel. 
I can twist, push and bend my thumb with very little pain. 
Mine hurts during the night and I get shooting pains during the day for no apparent reason

Susan, when I read your post, a light came on. I haven this also, and I bet it is from gripping iPad. You typed iPod, but when I read "keyboard", I knew you meant iPad. I work with one all day, and play on it at night. Thanks for your post, now I know why this happened. Going to orthopedic surgeon in 2 days, will let you know what happens.

Daniel, 
Thumb problems can be complex and we do suggest you consult your physician or consider seeing a hand specialist. You may want to read our description of  
de Quervain’s Tenosynovitis which is inflammatory condition around the tendons that extend or pull your thumb back. http://www.3pointproducts.com/quervains-syndrome/. 
A common symptom of de Quervain’s tenosynovitis is shooting pain that goes up the thumb side of your forearm. This common problem is often treated with a splint for rest, especially at night. Your physician or a hand specialist can best determine your problem and prescribe proper treatment.

I have a slight pain in my left hands thumb joint (the one below my thumb knuckle) it started to hurt for no reason, it isn't stopping me doing anything, & I only really notice it if I'm gripping something, I've had this a few months now, it does not appear to be getting worse, but there is no improvement either, a couple of weeks ago I woke to find the back of my right hand hurt, at first I thought I'd slept on it funny, but that has still not improved, I notice it more if I bend my hand towards my wrist, no thumb pain though, its worrying me, I am 35, I do clerical work which involves a lot of typing, but don't see how that can affect back of my right hand & left thumb, can anyone help? Im scared it could be the start of something serious. Thank you Emma

I indeed have iPad thumb. Tendonitis. Orthopedic surgeon wanted to do a cortisone shot to thumb, but I opted for 14 day run of oral prednisone. No brace necessary, he said it would only elongate tendon and not help swelling and irritation of tendon. I am having a hard time changing my old habits of grasping and holding the iPad, but I am trying.

Emma, 
 
Thank you for your inquiry about your thumb pain. Please know that we cannot offer you a diagnosis but can guide you to some things you may want to try to relieve your discomfort. As with any medical condition, we strongly suggest you consult with your health care provider before beginning any treatment. 
 
Your description does sound as though you have a mild tendinitis. For more information on tendinitis and a condition common to the thumb, we suggest you read about tendinitis at this link http://www.3pointproducts.com/tendinitis/) and read about de Quervain’s tenosynovitis at this link http://www.3pointproducts.com/quervains-syndrome/ . 

 
You may consider taking a daily dose of an over the counter anti-inflammatory medications such as Aleve or Ibuprofen. Resting your thumb in a splint during the night may also be helpful. Some suggested splints include the 3pp ThumSpica, the 3pp Ultra Spica and the 3pp ThumSling Long. All these splints can be found at http://www.3pointproducts.com/sidemenu/thumb/.  
 
These splints can be purchased from many of our online suppliers who can be found by clicking on the WHERE TO BUY links on each product page.

Val, 
Sounds you are getting good use out of your iPad. A couple of suggestions that might help reduce some of the stress you are experiencing in your hands. A cover with a built in stand that allows you to view the iPad vertically or horizontally can be very helpful. A small folding stand – there are quite a few styles that are small enough to keep in your purse or pocket will hold the pad while you browse or read. Another option to give your thumbs a rest is to use a stylus at least part of the time so you are changing how you use your hand.  
 
While your doctor does not recommend a splint, they can be very helpful in helping to rest and reduce the stress on your thumb. A splint worn at night that keeps your thumb in a rested position may be beneficial if your condition continues to be a problem. Even a light compression glove can help by reducing swelling and supporting affected tendons and tissues. For more information, view the Which Thumb Splint is Right for You video on our blog page and read about tendinitis and de Quervain’s tenosynovitis on the 3-Point Products web page. 
 
Thank you for posting your comment.

I ride a motorbike daily and also may guitar. Recently both thumbs and wrists ache. I thought it may have been vibration from the bike but this has helped. I think just torn/ strained muscles akin to gamekeepers thumb. Fingers and forearms stiff too  
Thank you for a very informative site.

Dear Ms. Sutherland, 
Thank you for your inquiry about your thumb pain. Please know that we cannot offer you a diagnosis but can guide you to some things you may want to try to relieve your discomfort. As with any medical condition, we strongly suggest you consult with your health care provider before beginning any treatment. Given that your injury occurred two months ago, it is very possible that you suffered more than a minor injury that even time and proper splinting will not heal without specific medical intervention. We suggest locating a hand surgeon near you now for a proper diagnosis and treatment program. You can search this site for a hand surgeon in your area. http://www.assh.org/Public/Pages/default.aspx .  
 
Your description does sound as though you may have suffered a tear of thumb ligament on the inside of the thumb (the Ulnar Collateral Ligament) that provides stability and strength to the MP (middle) joint . For more information on Skier’s or Gamekeepers Thumb we suggest you read about Gamekeeper’s Thumb at this link http://www.3pointproducts.com/gamekeepers-thumb/ and Skier’s Thumb at http://www.3pointproducts.com/skiers-thumb/  
 
You may consider taking a daily dose of an over the counter anti-inflammatory medications such as Aleve or Ibuprofen. Resting your thumb in a splint that at the very least supports the MP joint such as the ThumSaver MP - http://www.3pointproducts.com/thum-saver-mp/ will also be helpful. In the event that a short thumb splint does not relieve the pain and dysfunction, the ThumSaver CMC Long - http://www.3pointproducts.com/cmc-long/ or the Ultra Spica - http://www.3pointproducts.com/ultra-spica/ will be helpful to fully rest the thumb and facilitate healing.  
 
These splints can be purchased from many of our online suppliers who can be found by clicking on the WHERE TO BUY links on each product page.

Hi been having problems for over a month now, I woke up one morning to find my thumb tip didn't feel like it was in right place, clunking with pain i thought I'd dislocated it.I went for an xray which did not reveal a dislocated tip, but they thought I'd Done something to the second joint (proximal) They asked me if it was there that i had dislocated no further follow up issued... Before I go on I have Ehlers Danlos syndrome/hypermobility. type 3 or otherwise known as joint hypermobility syndrome, so subluxing, semi dislocations and dislocations are the norm, alas, I'm leaning towards trigger thumb or a combination of both that and a tendonitis, it's getting worse, and usually extreme each morning upon waking after periods of resting this, pain in base of the thumb but not limited to that, i have lost function and pain in grip and can not put pressure on either the tip or the base. nothing seems to be helping if i put my finger over the inside at base i can feel a hard lump which painfully moves upon flexing. but press too hard causes intense pain. Thumb Tip is painfully locking and a visibly popping proximal when flexing the distal(tip) experiencing deep aching all over thumb which has spread up the arm inc wrist. i have got Osteo Arthritis too. But looking around i'm convinced this is mainly trigger thumb.i have been offered apt for physio.. But really am not sure this is the for the best, nor do i think at this point will it serve to help me, do i need evaluation in the form of MRI/Ultra sound scan, isn't it better to have treatment for this then have physio.why does splinting it make things worse(or have i not given it long enough in a splint?) I am trying to keep it moving despite pain,to try and keep it mobile and supple..am i wrong in doing so I have to be very careful of operations on ligaments and tendons due to scar tissue with the EDS3 dx and i;m scared of steriods due to the OA dx... what else is there? ...Any input would be helpful..Rachel

Dear Rachel__ 
Thank you for visiting 3-Point Products. Please know that we are not a medical advice website and thus cannot diagnose your condition or dispense medical advice. It does sound as though you have a complex set of symptoms that are best diagnosed by your physician or by a hand specialist who can recommend appropriate treatment.  
 
To locate a hand surgeon or a hand therapist near you, please visit our About 3pp page - http://www.3pointproducts.com/about-us/ - and click on one of the links in the middle of the page that will allow you to search for a health care professional in your area. It is rare that an MRI or Ultrasound is required to diagnose common hand conditions. 
 
We can tell you about some of our splints you may want to consider discussing with your health care provider or purchasing on your own. Given your diagnosis of EDS, generally splinting the whole thumb is recommended as immobilizing only one joint can transfer greater stress to the other joints. Resting your thumb at night may be the least invasive treatment and we suggest you view our thumb splint product page - http://www.3pointproducts.com/sidemenu/thumb/ and read about the 3pp Ultra Spica, the ThumSaver CMC Long and the 3pp ThumSpica. All of these splints hold the thumb in a rested position and are recommended for nighttime rest.  
 
For daytime, you may want to consider an Oval-8 splint if you are in fact diagnosed by a health care professional with a Trigger Thumb. If the problem is closer to your wrist at the middle or base joint, the 3pp ThumSling or 3pp ThumSling NP may be helpful. 
 
On our web site, you can read more about thumb conditions on our Thumb related Blogs - http://www.3pointproducts.com/blog-health-arthritis-finger-and-toe-conditions/thumb-blog-posts/ or click on Conditions - http://www.3pointproducts.com/conditions/ to read about specific conditions. 
 
Please be aware that proper treatment does depend on a proper diagnosis and we strongly recommend that any splint is best chosen and fit by a trained health care provider.

I have been having problems with my thumb since the beginning of August. I saw a Dr about 10 days ago. He Diagnosed CMC arthritis. I had a shot of cortisone, which was very painful. In addition I started using a thumb splint. The pain is not any better in fact it is worse. I have an appointment with him in another 2 weeks. What else could it be?
Posted @ Saturday, September 07, 2013 10:00 AM by Gayle Walsh
Gayle, 
Thank you for your inquiry about your thumb pain. Please know that we cannot offer you a diagnosis but can guide you to some things you may want to try to relieve your discomfort. 
 
Since you say you were treated only 10 days ago, it is most likely that you have not allowed enough time following the injection and the wearing of a splint to relieve your pain. Consider that your arthritis did not just occur in the last 10 days – it has likely been a process occurring over several years. While it will not take years to reduce your pain, it may require several months of splinting and learning ways to use your hands so there is less stress on your thumbs, to reduce your pain. You may also benefit from taking a therapeutic dose of an anti-inflammatory medication such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen (Motrin or Advil) or Naproxen (Aleve). Your doctor can help you determine an appropriate dose to start with and a maintenance dosage. 
 
You may also want to revisitwww.3pointproducts.com and read our blogs about arthritis- http://www.3pointproducts.com/blog-health-arthritis-finger-and-toe-conditions/arthritis-blog-posts/. In particular, our Thumb Arthritis blogs and the Products to Help with Arthritis blog topics will be useful. 
 
It is hard to be patient when you hurt but in this case, time is an important part of your treatment. If your pain persists despite proper treatment including anti-inflammatory medicine and a well fit splint – you may consider consulting a hand surgeon at http://www.assh.org/Public/Pages/default.aspx. 
 
I hope this information is helpful to you.

Hello 
My thumb joint, the one nearest the tip of the thumb has been hurting for approx 2 months. The joint looks slightly swollen and it hurts when you squeeze it. It doesn't hurt when it's not in use but it hurts to bend it and it hurts when I push it against my forefinger (like a grip position). It's becoming a concern.

My thumb pain is on my left thumb and is on the OUTSIDE on top side of thumb. It's not on the inside next to the forefinger. it's on the top outside. It hurts in the fleshy part of the top outside of the thumb between the knuckles. It doesn't always hurt. But give me problems in the golf swing. That thumb is very weak now and small movements such as taking off socks can be very painful is not done slowly and carefully. What do I have?

I've been having an aching pain in the base of my thumb. It doesn't hurt if I bend it or stretch it. I think it may be due to writing and typing quite a lot since I have coursework and exams soon.
