I know, I've done the search bar, some results, but still.

Occasionally I'm getting wrist pain, to the point where it takes quite a while to recover. I'm somewhat paranoid about this Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or whatever it's called that can permanently damage your wrist nerves and such.

Well, when should I go to a doctor..?

All right, well you think I should put down the guitar for a few days?

It's the generic pain of a repetitive motion that will eventually go away.
No big deal.

Thing is, it's kind of frequent? Know of any excercises I can do to help reduce that?

Maybe I shouldn't jump right into shredding at first.

nah, just take breaks after 2 hours of playing. I kept playing even when it hurt like hell, then it just went away.

It used to be frequent for me too, when I started playing.
Now it isn't.

Give it some time, and you'll be able to shred, good as new.

If it's really bad I would do two things:

1. Go to the doctors. If you've got insurance it will cost you nothing (or close to) and you'll know for sure if you have a problem.

2. Get a guitar lesson, even if it's only one. The teacher will tell if you have bad posture/technique which may be the cause of your pain.

Well I've been playing for quite a while, it just seemed recent. And I do have a guitar teacher, maybe I'll ask him.. Thanks.
