ok i think i have tendonitious i am going too see a doctor to be totaly sure soon,i dont think i have carpal tunnel as i don't have any of the symptoms really. no numbness, no loss of strength in my hand ether but i do want to be sure. I understand if i do have it i will have to stop using my hand until its healed. I am worried because i don't want to give up guitar due to it. so will this be the end of my playing if i do have it

not necessarily. i have carpel tunnel in both wrists but i still play fine. i just had to ease up when it was pointed out to me

if you've got none of the symptoms then what the hell are you worried about?

And no not likely just play every once in a while, just to make sure you keep the rythm and skill.

All tendonitis is, is swelling of the tendons.. Just don't play for a couple of days and wrap your hand when you play.

ah i'll let you off then but yeah just ease off on the playing and wear a bandaid or something when you do play. Best bet really.

Another thing that would help is that "proper" techique for chords and stuff. Meaning wairing your guitar all up high, but it'll keep your wrist straight all the time when playing, thus reducing stress and in turn, pain.

Go check it out before it becomes a chronic situation and you find you can't play, can't type at a keyboard, are in constant pain, etc.
