It seems like I have had this no matter what the string or racquet. I am going to switch to synthetic gut for a bit to be safe, since I do prefer full poly. Grip size is 3/8ths, which is the correct size for my hand.
I currently use the Donnay Dual core with soft co poly (b5e). this happened with flexier prestiges, Dunlops..the flexier Donnay Black..just can't seem to solve it so far with a string or racquet change.
Never had problems with my thumb but recently Ive had . No pain in the wrist though.
I attribute the pain to full poly. When I dont hit in the sweetspot, I sense the vibration in my hand. This leads to inflamation.
I am switching to soft copoly main, with gut or multi cross, to dampen and eliminate vibration. Also switched to Volkl Organix 8 which has a new device in the grip that helps absorb the shock and vibration.
Use ice to prevent more inflamation and helps lessen the pain
