Leaning on your forearms/elbows can cause your ulnar nerve to flare up; this is the nerve that goes along your ulnar (forearm bone); from from up behind your neck/shoulder and down to your little finger and rim finger.
If your ulnar nerves flare up, just don't lean on your elbows/forearms as; this act physically stops the nerve messages from your hand to your brain; fear not, just loosen up and it'll soon go back to normal.

Also, about carpal tunnel syndrome; eat right and exercise is also good at fending off carpal tunnel syndrome.

All guitarists will die eventually. For your health and quest for immortality, throw your guitar in the bin.

They made a TV show about him. It's called The Walking Dead.

I had trigger finger in my thumb from bass playing for 5 months I couldn't get rid of. I tried all the fixes for it besides surgery and nothing worked. I got my thumb hit and yanked backward unexpectedly and two weeks later I was back in business. I guess it was the ripping of the knotted tendon allowed it to reheal the right way. It works but hurts pretty bad.

You should get that looked at. Pain is always a warning sign. Better to get it checked now and be able to play long-term.

the injuring or reinjuring when I got my thump ripped backwards is what caused the original problem to go away. My thumb now operates with no pain and full function... 1 1/2years now.

TBF, your OP read like your thumb still hurts. Funny how accidents can work for the good of things, though
Glad to cross paths with you on this adventure called life

Don't eat too much and avoid too much sugar unless the idea of type 2 diabetes turns you on.
