EDIT: I posted a status update about this but I can't see it anywhere on my desktop version so I'll add it here too: I got a second opinion and this doc does not think it's carpal tunnel, but is actually irritated nerves from overuse, meaning it will eventually heal and get better! Sorry if I worried anyone, tbh when the first doc just told me he thought I had carpal tunnel I freaked. :") Thanks for the comments guys!
Hey everyone! I'll be a little aloof here on DA for at least a couple of weeks while I let my hand/wrist heal. Wend to the doc today because I've been having aches and pains in my hand that are now kinda preventing me from being able to do normal things like take notes/type a lot/draw. Doc believes I have carpal tunnel and referred me to a physiotherapist, and in the meantime told me to rest my hand for the next couple of weeks at least. I get to wear a cool wrist brace pretty much 24/7 too. Fun stuff
It kinda blows though, because I was seriously having the most fun with my art I have had in a long time leading up to this problem and now I'm forced to take a break. :/
Anyways, hope everyone is doing well! Sorry if I am really late to replying to stuff. Trying to keep activity to a minimum.
