In brief: Not sure

Possibly the splint is not applied properly or in correct position.
If it for a fracture, perhaps a well padded thumb spica cast might be more comfortable. One should actually be more comfortable if an injury is immobilized in a splint or cast in the proper position check with your ortho if not better.
