recently i've been having pain in my right shoulder and i know that it's from playin my guitar so much, having my arm hunched over the body if the guitar. if i play too long my shoulder gets a sharp pain and then i have to stop playing for a bit. i went to the doctors and said to give it up and i went "f*ck you" and walked out rejecting this advice. so now i come to the pit. are there any exercises or anything i can do to work the pain away and prevent it from coming back? cause this sh*t is pissin me off.

To quote what will probably be said:

UG is not your personal doctor


Seriously though, go to a physio or something. They usually cost abot £20 ($40) for a consoultation, and they will tell you what the problem is and if they can help you.

Also, play your guitar less.... I know it's hard, but it will help

google this: "Trigger Point Therapy Workbook". Very good book. I too deal with muscle pains that interfere with my guitar at times. Mostly cuz I have had a desk job for years though.

play sitting for a few days and stretch your shoulder real good before you start

Carisiprodol work soooo much better
Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: "Mankind". Basically, it's made up of two separate words - "mank" and "ind". What do these words mean ? It's a mystery, and that's why mankind is.

We'll choke on our vomit and that will be the end

It's not the going that the pit cares about.
It's the coming.
