I to have the same problem.
Things I have done to reduce the problem,
Switched from a 6ml liner to a 9ml liner.
Manufactured a 1/8Ē foam u shaped, and straddle the bone so more contact is around the bone and not on the end.
My prostatic guy who is part of Hanger, he ground a small relief in my socket.
What may be going on is you are shrinking at such a rate you donít have the natural padding anymore it is just your skin and bone.
