Okay this started a few days ago....first when I woke up in the morning the knuckle on my index finger was swollen which I thought was weird. Then I proceeded to practice a bunch of scales and finger exercises on my 5 string. Now in addition to the finger, the left side of wrist hurts when I play...Is this because of bad technique? I feel as if I am bending my wrist way to much, but I have to to properly fret with my pinkie on the low B..and I even have very big hands...I wear my bass above the waist ( but I am very tall so this is still a little low)..I have decide to take it easy for a few days and begin working on changing my posture in order to prevent such a bad wrist bend....Any suggestions? I don't want this to be an ongoing problem..
