Sorta different than the hand cramp threads... I am having problems with my left hand... not technique-wise but physically. I have a 'pins and needles' kinda feel in the fingers that lasts quite a while... sometimes I have to shake it out between songs... sometimes I am hoping I make the end before I lose all feeling. Weird. Never remember anything like this happening to me before. I have been playing/practicing quite a bit... my worst fear is that it's carpal tunnel and not fixable w/o surgery... nerve damage? Body, heal thyself! Zoom ... to the bottom!
