I need guidance on thumb pain/RSI symptoms that I can't find info on...

I'm getting some kind of RSI on the side of the end of my thumb (exterior, adjacent to the right side of my thumbnail.) It feels like it is burning and getting worse. It is the spot where I hit the spacebar/trackpad. I'm worried, but in reading up on thumb pain, can't find this particular injury, nor any suggested remedies.

Sprained thumb? why so long.

Sprained thumb?- pain and stiffness won't go away. What could it be? Hopefully not a ruptured ligament. [more inside]

What happened to two-year old's thumb?

Two-year old caught his thumb in a door. After two hours, the child no longer complained of pain, was using thumb fine. No swelling, cuts, or outward signs of trauma. However, the thumb "clicks" and locks in a straight position if the child extends his thumb. Is this a permanent injury? What damage was sustained? What should we ask the doctor when we visit?
