Discomfort from wrist to forearm from playing badminton and guitar

by Marc Favreau


I played badminton for a period of 6 weeks one a week. One day i had a strange feeling in my wrist but it didn't really hurt. I think its tendonitis but im realy not sure so ive been keeping it still for about 5 days now.

I have been playing guitar for 10 years now and im really worried about this situation. Ive never had any problems before even though i used to practice about 2 hours a day. I now get this feeling in my forearm elbow and sometimes bicep.

I could describe this feeling by slight pain and slight numbness.

Hope you can help.

Hi Marc.

At a certain level, the great thing about Tendonitis is that you don't need to be -sure- whether you have it or not.

If you have wrist pain, and forearm pain, then there is a -dynamic- at play. Specifically, a Pain Causing Dynamic.

You use your body, muscles get tight, stay tight, connective tissue shrink wraps, the body starts to feel pain, feels more pain, repeat until you consciously feel it.

To the right of the page I have an ebook with a complete plan.

Or you can learn How To Reduce Inflammation and start with that and see what happens.
