Pain around right thumb

Hi, There is pain in the muscle around the right thumb joint, palm side. Mild pain when doing daily chores like kneading dough. Pain increases in the morning if left unmoved specially during the night. She is around 56 years of age ? What should be the correct course of action ? Could it be arthritis setting in as in old age ? Could be gout ?
