I've developed a lateral epicondylitis and can't make jewellery anymore, at least until it gets better (which can take months). I'm about to undergo a series of painful steroid shots right to the elbow and physiotherapy. Fantastic. :| (Blank Stare) 

I'm also not allowed to swim, and my artistic and professional activity needs to be reduced to minimum, because I use this arm for everything, not just crafts: painting, guitar, illustration, cooking and housework.

I'm feeling so useless now. Sniff

Ewch. :(  Hope it heals well and fast, but make sure you let it heal properly before using it again! It's the difference between months of downtime and the rest of your life!  (Sorry. Speaking from sibling experience.)

Sorry to hear that! I hope you feel better as quickly as the condition may allow it... did you develop it working in your jewelry or do you actually play tennis? Meanwhile, I know everybody will tell you this, but do read, watch movies, comfort your mind if your body can't follow for the moment... hugs!

It's the jewellery. Any repetitive wrist movement will do that and I've been doing it for the last eight years. :(

I'm sorry to hear that. Not to be able to do anything really drags one down. I hope you recover quickly or discover a method to at least be a bit active.
