Exactly what it says, who's had it? Who's had the surgery to correct it? Who's dealt with it w/o the surgery? What helped you to cope with it while playing bass? Tips/tricks/advice????? How long have you suffered through it? How has it effected you and or your playing? I'm not 100% sure this is my issue or not just yet, I am scheduled for an MRI next week and I guess I'll know then, but as this problem has progressed and comparing my symptoms with information online, I worry that it is indeed exactly what is going on. I started a thread some time ago thinking that maybe it was my strap cutting off circulation to my arm, but as its progressively become more noticeable I've been able to better describe it to my dr. And give her a much better idea of what is going on. As always thanks for any and all advice and information. I'm seriously scared this is not only going to ruin my bass playing but also guitar and many other things I do. I'm really hoping you guys can help put my fears to rest, I've heard mixed information so far, I figured who better to ask besides actual bassists. Thanks.
