Happy New Year everybody! A couple of weeks ago I woke up with some pain in my right index finger. I had gone to bed as every night after a bit of practicing a challenging new part and felt all right. In the morning, I noticed the pain when I make the clamp pressure against the thumb. At the beginning I though I maybe had hit something in the bed in dreams because I still find no explanation of why I went to bed all right and woke up like that. When to a doctor and after radiography she said there's no fissure nor anything broken, so it should be tendinitis. Applied anti-inflamatory and immobilization for a week and after that it hurted even more, although 2-3 days later it is better. Anyway, it still aches when doing a clamp with the thumb but it is curious that it doesn't hurt while playing, I mean, when I grip the pick I don't feel any pain. This is where the pain starts and goes through, no bone thing apparently. Can anybody help with this? My doctor shrugged and gave me no more advice than more anti-inflamatory. Is it logical to be perfect in the night, nothing hurting until the next morning, and not aching when doing the pick grip to play guitar? Thanks in advance!
