I first really noticed some pain in my left forearm a few weeks ago while recording on my computer, trying to play some chords up above the 12th fret that required some stretching I wasn't used to. Weeks later the discomfort is still there, and a bit of research has led me to believe I have a classic case of tennis elbow (pain on the outside of the forearm, right below the elbow). I have been gigging a fair amount, 6-8 per month lately, and I don't know if this arose from playing or from lugging equipment (my rig as well as PA gear). In any event, playing seems like it *can* aggravate it a bit, although my alt. country gig doesn't demand any of the real stretchy chord stuff that made me notice the problem originally. Anyway... anyone else experience this? Opinions on whether it's playing related or gear-toting related, and if it was initially caused by gear toting, whether playing is a significant aggravating factor? I am scaling back my home practice routine right now because I also have what I believe to be tendonitis issues in my right (plucking) fingers. Comments on my approach of taking it easy, along with regular doses of OTC anti-inflammatory meds? Thanky thanky!
