Re: OT: anybody dealt with tendinitis?

I had tennis elbow, shoulder and funky wrist at one point. Couldn't scratch my head, throw a ball or hold the guitar. I changed how I sit with the guitar - I sit classical style now with guitar between my legs - and it's gone. I learned this from John Fahey.

I turn 60 soon!

My son the spinal surgeon recommends anti inflammatory pills like advil or ibuprofin. I have a lot of resistance to new addictions, though.

Vitamins are good. Glucosamine (sp?) is great. Acupuncture is great for making pain go away but doesn't always hold up. I've seen it stop the pain of brain tumors! But it didn't make the brain tumor go away. So it might be a good move while you change your technique. Posture etc is so critical. And certainly yoga etc would be wise. I don't do it, but admire those who do.

Anything that keeps the blood moving is probably good. I still have some recurring back pain, but I think that's from lifting heavy amps and farm work. As long as I'm conscious of it, it's just there, not debilitating at all.
