hand pain between index and thumb

Whenever I press against something with my left index finger or try to grab something with my left index and thumb, I have pain. The fatty area of my left hand between my index finger and thumb also appears to be atrophied or just thinner than that of my right hand. I can actually feel the artery in that area pulse, while in my right hand I can't really feel it at all. I don't really have any numbness, so I don't think it's carpal tunnel, but I really don't know what it could be.

Wondering if anyone else has dealt with anything like this?

Re: hand pain between index and thumb

Look up Basal Joint Arthritis or Carpal Metacarpal Thumb and see if you have any of the symptoms they describe.
