Symptoms from arthritis at the base of the thumb usually come on slowly, although some patients experience it rather abruptly.

They may be doing an activity that causes some impact in the thumb, they may fall onto their thumb, and all of a sudden their thumb is sore, only to see their doctor and be given a diagnosis of arthritis.
