Hey guys, I'm not 100% this is the best place to post this, but I really wanted input and advice from musicians like myself. And in that sense, this is definitely the best place on Newgrounds!
About two years ago, I was diagnosed with tendonitis in both hands. It was mostly centered in my wrists, but my fingers suffer from it as well. Since then, I've seen a few doctors and went through a couple of months of therapy too. I've also had to reduce myself in indulging in music for only a short period of time before having to stop again to rest and heal. Needless to say, this has been very...frustrating, especially since I've even had to change my career goals because of it.
I've tried medicine (anti-inflammatory), massages, soaking in warm water... but it never changes. I start back playing keyboard for a couple of weeks, then BAM. It's back. And then I have stop for a couple weeks (or sometimes months) and...yeah.
So, my NG family, have you found any special ways of combating hand pains from playing, recording, etc.? Or have anyways of coping with it? I've just gotten back into playing and have even submitted audio on here for the first time. I've really enjoyed the community and want to keep producing pieces, but am worried that I won't be able to overcome this condition.
Any input would be appreciated. :)
