An MRI will be able to see cartilage tears or significant swelling in the tendons. If you have a hand specialist in your area, he would probably be your best bet.
True that.... both wife and I suffer from tendinitis often... mine and wives definitely tendinitis - tennis elbow - first thing my doctor said was - welcome to 50 - so now there's extra attention and new behaviors on activities...

get it checked and do what you can to prevent it.. Hope you can get an MRI with new O-Care pressuring insurers and providers - if you get one - hope it won't prevent sale of the boat.. - yeah
