Twirly, sorry to hear aboot your injury (me unsincerely pretends that it was my fault) it sounds like a finger webbing prob - something helpful to know is that i used to get this when 'vigourously' poi-ing and solved the prob by changing the way i hold it (the poi! ) if the way you grip ya staff is similar to the way i used to grip the poi handles, then the solution is (wet! ) to emphasise more of your grip down from your webbing to your palm, using the webbing only when necessary (eg finger twirling, finger flourishes, finger food...) esp not with throws+catches!!
