#beginquote# First, how old are you? If you are young, you should have good flexability and reflexes. Do you do a lot of lifting with your wrists? If so, this may fatigue the muscles tendons and nerves in your wrists and forearms. I am a month shy of fifty, and have had about thirty five years of abuse from construction work, and suffer from carpal syndrome in both wrists. This causes severe pain and lack of mobility in the wrists. This accounts for my problems playing guitar. I had surgery in my left wrist about six years ago, and am receiving treatment by a chiropractor for about two years now. I doubt I will ever recover fully, but there has been substantial improvement from the chiropractic, which consists of electrical stimulation, cold laser therapy, and massage. I would recommend taking it easy on the arms. Talk to a health professional to find out if you may be over-doing it with the lifting. Also what you do for a living can have an adverse effect on the arms and wrists. Take care of your body throughout your entire life, and you should have success with your playing. Good luck with your guitar. I am a fragment of my imagination #endquote#
