In brief: possibly referred

The lunate bone is not far from the base of the thumb, and so it is possible that your pain is a referred pain from the lunate fracture.
Another possibility is that in addition to the lunate fracture, you have also sustained a bone or ligamentous injury to the thumb itself. Thank you.
