    23 year old bass player here, experiencing pain in both of my index fingers for over a year now.

    Both of my index fingers are curved inwards (towards my hands) at approximately 20 degrees (right hand index being a little more, probably due to using a pick for the last 3 years) and they don't seem to be getting any better. They hurt on the top of the middle phalanges simply when I bend my fingers.

    I am starting to play upright bass now, any advice on what to do to alleve this pain (can't afford surgery or have time for recovery) will be appricated before I totally mess them up. Happy Holidays.
