Circular needles have been giving me troubles too lately but it's been my thumb. I realized it was the way I was holding it and when I started to hold it the way I usually hold the needles even if it gets too long for me to actually rest the needle between my thumb and forefinger it prevents my thumb from hurting.

It may be possible that your poking your middle finger too much and too much pressure?

Ooh bout your boyle needles, they're okay as long as I use the big ones if I use the smaller gage needles they tend to bend on me and if your a tight knitter it may do the same if not more to you.
