The base of the thumb is one of the places that arthritis shows up first, or, you can get something called 'tenosynovitis' at the base of the thumb. Sounds like a trip to the doctor would be a good thing.

One thing that can help a little is the supplement glucosamine/chondroitin. You have to take it for a month or so before you notice a difference, but it can help both animals and humans with osteoarthritis (arthritis that is from "wear and tear").
