Hi, Thanks for writing. It looks like you have some problem either in the bone or joints of your thumb. Undergoing a plain xray of your hand will reveal the diagnosis. As you are already having the problem for the past 2 months, i suggest you to act quick. Consult an orthopedic surgeon and follow his advise. Good luck
