getting an idea from your pain while tying it is probably the scaphoid bone that is troubling you.
can be necrosis if you had a history of fall on your hand
or else can be just an overuse pain which had lead to muscle spasm.
stabilize the joint with a compression bandage and apply a contrast bath i.e apply ice (10 min)& hot packs (10 min alternating 3/4 times) over the pain area 4 times a day.
and ray to confirm the diagnosis is advisable
hope you find this helpful
