lol^^ ya take a break from masturbating. maybe take a break from typing and playing guitar contiunesly for too long, and maybe next type you type, try to be more ergonomic i guess, take a look at ur posture, and the position of your hands and everything, somethign might be making your wrists hurt.
#6
If you're worried seriously stop playing guitar until you get it checked. and DO get it checked, some of these things can ruin careers.

hmm, prolly shouldnt fap so much then


yea pretty much


but really its probably the typing, a lot of people who work at a computer all day get carpel tunnel or whatever, that combined with guitar is probably not the best thing ever. get one of those pad things to stick below the keyboard to keep your wrists up for good typing posture or whatever, i dont know how else to explain it.

Look, it's his left wrist... as far as I know, every right handed guy masturbates with his right hand. He means that he got pains in his left wrist because that's the hand he controls the neck with, or however I should say it.

Seriously though, a bit of exercise wouldn't hurt ya.

I've got it too, and I'm pretty sure that it's from guitar. Just going to stop playing for a day or two.

Just tell your teachers that you can't play and give them that very reason.

might be rsi or tendinitis. Best to be fully relaxed and warmed up when playing. most importantly use light strings. i have had a lot of probs and tried everything but only things that worked were hand massaging warming up and during a play, the powerballs and using light strings and low action.
#16
Your technique may need work, I know a guy who had a weird fretting technique and developed either tendinitis or carpal tunnel (don't remember which one). But it got really bad and he had to learn how to play completely differently... so get it checked out before something like that happens
#19
I had this same thing once... but my right hand. It went away in about a week... I think it was tendonidous.(sp)

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

Ice it, stop 'fapping' for a while and take a break from guitar (heartbreaking i know, but nessisary) and if you get a note from a physician then you dont have to type either.
The only things we hate are those things we try to hide from others.

Either way, I don't think bananas should be placed in such proximity to an ass

I disagree. Bananas and ass are like peaches and cream.
