I know you guys are going to tell me to go to a doctor, but I've already been to 3 and they are not helping me. My problem is very peculiar and again I ask for advice in the hopes that somebody out there will understand what is wrong with my wrists. My wrists are both messed up. I began practicing guitar about three months ago after a year of not playing bass. My wrists immediately reacted by becoming inflamed, with an odd burning sensation. The outsides of them are sore, and the worst burning sensation is in a specific area on each. If you make a fist and flex your wrist, it's right at the highest point of the muscle where my index and thumb tendons cross. Physical therapy has strengthened my wrists, and the outsides of my wrists don't hurt nearly as much as they used to, but the inside is getting worse. I went to a wrist and hand specialist after the physical therapy didn't help, and he gave me a cortisone shot in my right wrist. Again, this did not help. It's been three days since my shot and my wrist is back to where it was. I have a fantastic guitar teacher and he says that my technique is great in both hands. I warm up every time before I play and am still unable to play pretty much anything outside of simple riffs or passages, given that I'm a guitar beginner. My wrists burn after 30-45 minutes of playing, and burn in the morning when I wake up especially. I have had X-rays and skeletally, there is nothing wrong with my wrists. I had the notion that I might be turning my wrists at night, so I bought wrist braces to immobilize my wrists when I went to sleep and they did not help. I essentially stopped playing video games or getting on the computer, and haven't worked out in a month to try to fix this, but if anything it's made it worse. I think that what the problem is is that for some reason my tendons aren't developing at all. For instance, if I were to lock my elbows, put my arms out straight and clench/unclench my fists without any muscular tension, my tendons would tire out in 30 seconds and I would have to quit. I've been to all the doctors I can in my area and none have helped. I am getting so incredibly frustrated because I can't play an instrument at all. If you have any advice or therapy techniques that could help me then please post it. I am baffled as to what's wrong with my wrists and starting to get desperate.
