So two weeks ago, I spent four days jamming with my band and did a show on Saturday night. After that, my elbow and left arm started to hurt. It didn't go away. It got the the point where it hurt to pick up a can of soda with my left arm.

I went to the doctor yesterday and was told I have "Tennis Elbow" (Lateral Epicondylitis). Now I have to do excrcises for a year and wear a tennis elbow band around my forearm.

The doctor didn't tell me to stop playing guitar (as if), but I guess I'll be taking it easy on an electric with light strings for a while.

Am I the only person who's ever done this? I didn't see a thread about it on these forums already.

I have Golfer's Elbow, which is the same but just on the other side of the elbow. But then I have weak ligaments.
Friends, applaud the comedy is over.


I'd dance with you but...

Does it make it tough to play guitar?

My elbow will ache if I play alot of fast songs for several days in a row. I just chill out for a week and its good to go again.
