While I have a physio appointment booked I thought I'd ask your opinions in the mean time. Lately I've experienced pain from the elbow joint (it seems to be in the bone) right down my arm and into mainly my pinky. I'm in my 50's and took up bass about two years ago. I'm not in a band but practice about two hours a day 5/6 days a week. I've read up on technique and I think mine is fairly ok (e.g. straight wrist). Maybe age is catching up on me and I should ease up a little, but I thought my practice time was fairly normal. Has anyone experienced anything similar. Any opinions appreciated.
