I'm having some pain and cramping in my right hand, I feel it mostly in the palm and thumb when I curl my fingers or try to make a fist it gets much worse.
Difficult to say without an exam. It's near an area that can be tricky if there were TRAUMA TO IT to diagnose. It is near the classic area for carpal tunnel, but that would usually have wrist pain and nerve type (sharp, electrical, or numb) pain. It isn't a typical place for arthritis but the symptoms sound like it. Frankly ortho exam w/out xray would prob tell.
