Take care of that arm and hand. I did the same thing two years ago and screwed up my elbow right good. Take breaks, stretch, eat, sleep, etc. and lather, rinse, repeat.

holy shit! i need surgery! ulnar nerve entrapment. my soul hurts. i burned out my arm by doing so much detailed work for the last 20+ years. i feel like crying every 20 minutes. after this ordeal i may never draw the same....if at all.

Oh dude, I am sorry. I sort of know the feeling, though yours sounds more severe. I had a cortisone injection about 2 months ago, but I'm back to feeling the twinge of pain in my right elbow. It's a pain in the ass.

are you right handed too? my thing is a nerve thing. my hand gets tingly. especially the pinky and ring finger. sounds like you have a tendon thing if they are giving you steroids...

I am. My left hand is only really good for typing and holding paper down while I cut it.

My dad and brother had the nerve issue and and had to have the ulna nerve relocated to the outside of their elbow. Mine is totally a tendon issue, too much of a death grip when I hold pens/x-actos/pencils.

how did their surgeries work out? i have to admit, i'm more than a little scared. they still have to do the electric pulse test to determine location and extent of damage...

Good in both cases. My dad was not young when he had the surgery and had other complications (a fused wrist due to arthritis), but the surgery stopped the pain and prevented further atrophy of the muscle in his hand.

My brother is only a few years older than me and had the surgery a few years ago. He had tingling and pain in his hand and the surgery fixed that and he returned to normal activity.

I'd be nervous too. Surgery of any kind is a little unnerving. Good luck and let me know how you make out with the test!
