OK, so in addition to the tendonitis in my right arm, I have now developed pain in my left index MCP joint. It started a week ago, and at first I thought it was a simple strain because I noticed it after handling a frisky colt, but instead of going away, it has settled in and unpacked it's bags. Initially just mild discomfort, it is now painful enough to stop me playing bar chords at all. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR !! X-ray tomorrow I think to rule out a fracture. I am not impressed !!!! Talk about cramping my playing. My only health phobia is rheumatoid arthritis, so I'm actually hoping it is a fracture or something simple like Ross River fever.
