Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. It is possible that you have arthritis in your thumb. Only your physician upon physical exam can make that diagnosis.

You may have injury to the flexor tendon. A flexor tendon injury can make it impossible to bend your fingers or thumb.
The flexor tendons, which are the tissues that help control movement in your hand.
