    Arthritis and Carpal tunnel

    Who has it playing drums or doing anything over the years of this . Not getting any better . Sometimes my wrist and shoulder hurts like crazy . Mostly at work when I am doing something for a long period of time. Standing in one spot . Had it since I was a little kid. Threw out Elem and High school and even now

    I probably have it in my right wrist. Not from drumming though. I'm a content writer among other things for several companies and it's come from years of typing. What do you think caused yours?

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.



    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.

    Mine started when I was in high school . Working with your hands and arms a lot . Hands would really cramp up and shoulder's will hurt a lot . But mine really recur during the Old BMX days of racing and I started on the drums in a early age . When I practice my drums for a short period of time. My right arm and hand would hurt like crazy. I just can't play or practice for a long period of time like I used to anymore . I loose grip and feeling in my right arm and hand.

    Is it possible that you are holding the sticks to tight? Racing BMX gives 1 the tendency to hold the handlebars tight, might that carry over to the holding the drum sticks?
