On July 16th, after a bout of typing, I devolped some pain in my wrists. Said pain would appear while drawing as well, and gradually I came to realize if I kept this up it would get far, far worse. So I stopped. Stopped doing the thing I love most, for fear of this turning chronic. I can say it's gotten better as of today, but I'm still unable to draw for long bouts before feeling that awful, dull ache in my wrist. My forearms are bruised from attempting to massage trigger points, but I can't say for certain if that helped. Wearing wrist bandages and taking pills didn't help much either, it seems that exercising the wrist with light weights was my best bet to recovery, so far. I won't stop doing that. But now I'm starting to worry. My best idea is that this is Tendinosis, a chronic degeneration of tendons, which can take up to three months of full rest and exercise to recover. At least I've gone through almost 2, but college starts soon and I'll have to be using my hands a lot. Even typing this is giving me some (verrrrry dull) pain, but how much of that is mental? I've developed this fear of typing and holding a pencil, which is horrible, because I'm a very creative person and drawing and writing are my favorite things to do. I haven't been able to do either of those, and it's just been awful. So my question to those on this board is, could this be TMS? The symptoms only occur whenever I do those things, and washing dishes hurt too (Not an activity I enjoy, could this be evidence for something physical?). I'm afraid to try TMS treatments because I don't want to stop my regiment of physical therapy and rest, since it could make this all the worse. If I must wait three more months before drawing again, then so be it. But what if this never goes away? Has anyone here gone through a similar situation?
