I'm starting to worry because my wrists are starting to hurt when I play bass. When I have wide stretches to reach on my fretting hand sometimes I feel a sharp pain in my wrist. Also, my knuckles on the same hand are getting really stiff. When I bend my fingers they sort of pop bent or pop straight. In other words the movement is not smooth. I am 32 and my mother has carpal tunnel and I just assume that's what is happening. Is there bass life after this? Has anyone here dealt with that?
