I feel funny listing this as I know many suffer so much greater than I but I also believe we have a great God who loves us and is concerned with all matters.
I have posted several times about Banjo right hand position and stiffness/tension in my hand. All my efforts to play as I did no more than a year ago has come to none. I warm up and have worked constantly on tension and even when that has been successful my hand is still stiff and playing is a bit choppy at times. I go to play and my fingers sometimes will jump on their own or curl up under and palm too far when rolling. Everyone on here has been super with advice as newbies can have all kinds of playing issues the first two years in.
Today I made an appointment to see a Rheumatologist. With swollen knuckles and soreness figured time to get checked out. My mom has severe arthritis. Has for years. Could be related.
Anyway, though this be a minor prayer in the grand scheme of things, I love playing the banjo and its been nothing but frustration for a while now. I do honestly believe this is related. Maybe the doctor has an answer or not.
So thanks for reading and praying.
