numbness in left thumb

Yesterday, I noticed a small area of pain in my left thumb.  It started turn thumb and stiff and painful through the night.  This morning, I can hardly bend it, and it is noticeably swollen. As the morning progresses, the numbness is moving up my arm.  This worries me because last week I was having anxiety and many heart palpitations.  I have had them for years, but never several in one hour.  That has quieted down, but now this numbness, is got me thinking it might be related.  What could this be?
