    I have a problem. My middlefinger from my right hand (plucking hand) seems to be under constant tension. It builds up, when I bend my finger, it gives a little snap, after that, the tension is gone for a while, but it returns after a couple of minutes. Snap again etc etc etc. I've also noticed that the finger is a bit swollen, compared to my other middlefinger. I didn't injure it, it hasn't been bruised or something like that. I haven't changed much of my playing habbits, although I've been playing Teen Town a lot, and I've been practising my string skipping at higher speeds..

    Any thoughts?

    Are you an angry driver? :eyebrow:

    Sounds like you need to visit an orthopedist. We are not doctors, we're bassists. OK, maybe a couple of us are doctors, but've got something going on there, and it needs to be looked at.

    Angry driver? If I get crossed by some huge jeep, I'm guessing yes :D

    I thought maybe someone here has had a similar problem, and could give me some information.
