um, today i read about carpal tunnel syndrome, one of the symptoms are burning sensations at the end of your fingers,

what i didnt find was the effects it can have, and what i can do to revesre it, cause im a guitarist, and its my life, if i cant do this, i dont be able to make a living, its the only thing ive been aiming for all my life, and ive closed all other doors


your help is appreciated

it's not good...my mom had surgery on both wrists, she developed it from typing all day at work back in the 80's before they realized a lot of the risks. Wearing wrist guards during repetitive motions, and sleeping helps prevent it, as does stretching, and warming up before doing things.

im not sure but i dont think carpel tunnel will end your guitar career. maybe a hand brace for a while? surgery? i dont really know at all but you'll still play.

I dont think there is a way to reverse it, but there probably are ways to prevent/treat it. People with Carpal Tunnel have nerve problems, and their wrists get hurt like Arthritis sort of.
