Carpal Tunnel.. The scariest thought for a guitarist.. along side with Wrist tendonitis. Both of these things disable your ability to play guitar.. and leave you in SO much pain. I have dealt with this crap for about a month or so now.. and it's starting to scare the hell out of me.. You know.. I have dreams just like anyone else.. I want to practice guitar every day just like I do.. and I want to make legacy for myself.. even if it's not something HUGE.. I just want to push and push with my drive in music. Yet something like this just puts a halt to my dreams? I constantly wonder about the injuries that can ensue on gutiarists and other musicians like myself. What happens now? We are told your body slowly decays as it is.. if you don't take care of it.. all you are doing is speeding up the process. How am I supposed to stop my dreams? I don't want to stop. I want to push forward.. So my question to you guys is.. do you know anyone who has been through these injuries and pushed through? Or do you have any words of wisdom or enlightenment? I'm just so bummed.. I have so many ambitions and I spend hours upon hours setting up music.. only to be left with horrible wrist pains and finger soreness.. I hate it. Any words are great.. and help is appreciated.. I hope I hear some responses to pull me out of the gutter..
