Woah, when you said you got a wedgie and you loved it, I thought you ment like a real wedgie, but back on topic. When I pull up my Bi-metals really hard, I usually get monster pains in my fingers but, its not all that often, so I dont know whats happening with your thumb… :-\

Wow. That had nothing to do with this thread…

Anyways, I have had this before. It hurts alot, but I haven’t gotten anything like a callus. It just hurts.

there’s a slight difference with your head and your finger… When I use my old butterfly (30 years old!) it hurts my finger even when I tug it up… The only cure is a glove I would say…

Edit:but then again the gloves they sell here don’t cover your thumb so disregard.

Well, it sounds like possibly a tendon or ligament having problems, if anything. I would recommend just not yoyoing or using that thumb as much as you can for a few days and then try it again.

You’d do well to ice it, too. Most joint and muscle pains respond well to ice treatment.

Most 5A yo-yos do it, find different ways to hold it and such.
