Thought I would also add to help facilitate the help needed here. If you hold your right hand out and have your thumb up on top, then move your thumb away from your hand h third of the distance of being fully flexed away from the hand the tendon will pop. Otherwise there is from an agonizing ache in the side of the wrist or sometimes seems like it goes away when no activity with hand and thumb. Many nights it seems to ache to keep you awake.
