    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?

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