I got a question for ya. A couple of weeks ago I rode a bull and hurt my thumb. I figure it was because I was holding on so tight. It hurts still, the second joint thingie. I wouldn't care but it hurts sometimes to hold on to the handlebar. I keep poping it and it makes it feel a little better. What should I do? -wink

Wink:

It is possible you stretched the ligaments when you road that bull. Its even possible you may have incurred a chip fracture to the joint from the ligament being partially torn off. I would recommend an evaulation by your doctor, hand X-rays and possibly a referral to an orthopedic doctor. If you have chip fracture or a torn ligament, things could be made much worse if you do not get it treated.

Thanks,
