I might have wrist tendonitus from guitar and video games but i'm not sure

by Eric

In early november 2011 i started having soreness in my left hand i play guitar and videogames often. By the end of the month it had happened to my right hand as well. From then until late december i could hardly do anything with my hands from a feeling that they were wounded. I had weakness and near chronic pain. Now in january i have gained the use of them again but it still have pain and know they are not fully healed.

My symptoms included
a creaking feeling in the hand during slow movement,pain on the sides of the wrists, tense feelings along the median nerves, weakness in the hands.

i have never had any numbness though or pain or lack of on any particular finger.

I would have seen a doctor but insurance and money are very lacking for me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Eric.

Sounds like Wrist Tendonitis.

See: What Is Tendonitis

Technically 'squeaking' isn't on my Wrist Tendonitis Symptoms, but it certainly could be.

Muscle and connective tissue is so chronically tight that when you slowly fire the muscles etc,
it just kind of....grinds.

It's a simple matter of loosening things up and restoring more optimal function.

You say you're wanting to be 'healed', but it's unlikely that you're actually 'injured'.

Pain, and a variety of negative factors working together to create chronic pain, do NOT necessarily equal injury.

So....what have you done for it so far to help make it better, aside from wishing for it to go away?
