Just started yesterday morning when I woke up. No redness or swelling, location is the left lower palm, I am 43 years old, male. No conditions that I know of.
Thank you for the information,

There can be a few possibilities.

There can be an inflammation of the joint, tenosynovitis, infection or an injury/ sprain.

An examination by doctor can distinguish among them.

Till you see doctor you need to keep it rest.

Application of heat/ cold can be helpful.

If the pain is severe motrin or naproxen can be tried, if there is no contraindication to them.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
