    Pain at the base of thumb of my right hand, what could it be?

    Hello:
    I hurt a big thumb of my right hand when moving a large table in the office. In the beginning I did not feel any pain. However the next morning when I got out from the bed I could not even lift a small dish for my little cat due to terrible pain at the base of my thumb.

    Now, in two weeks to go, I still a slight pain when getting up in the morning. However, there is no pain during the day. I soak my right hand in warm water for 5 minutes and so that help the pain.

    Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Sounds like a slight sprain...there are thumb splints or supports that you can get to use at bedtime.
