So here is the story; I played for 5 hours straight one night a few months ago. I was slouching and using fairly bad technique. My wrist started to hurt when I stopped so I went to the doctor, he said it was tendonitis so I did all the necessary things like icing it and not using it. and three months later it still hurts. I am typing this with one hand right now. does anyone have some advice they can offer? if so, thanks

Just hang in there and let your hand rest. Tendonitis takes a long time to heal. It sucks, but if you strain it again it'll get worse quickly.

Tendonitits sucks.

I have carpel tunnel syndrome and Im out of playing for 6 months on doctors orders.

Ive lost all strength in my left wrist so I cant play even if I wanted to.

Moral of the story: Rest the wrist. I didnt and now Im so much more worse off cause of it
Sat in a lab, curing diseases. They actually LET me play with chemicals!

My little bro suffered from this pretty bad, apparently the best bet is rest and cod-liver oil tablets.

Apparently the worst thing you can do is get stressed, as cortizone(?) (the chemical your body releases when you get stressed) seriously impairs the bodys system of repairing tendons and imflamation thereof.

Theres another suppliment you can take but i've fogotten its name, but cod-liver is the best. (He bust both wrists on gymnasts rings and sliced his archillies tendon in turkey, dumbass ).
Hope that helps..
