Friendly reminder to STOP DRAWING IF YOUR HAND BEGIN TO HURT. DON’T DRAW IF YOU FEEL PAIN, YOU WILL REGRET IT.
This video shows exercises to prevent it/give you exercises to help you stop the pain.
If you already have tendonitis, stop doing the thing that made you have it [drawing, writting, texting on cellphone] and stop using their force to carry things or do fine movements.
The exercises of the video work a lot.
You can also massage the area with Methyl salicylate [or normal cream too], you massage it and let it rest, keep the area quiet… ah! Ice works too if the area is too inflamed.
The idea is rest for, at least, one week and be ok, try to not use the hand and DON’T FORCE YOUR OTHER HAND TO DO ALL THE JOB TOO, because worst that tendonitis in one arm.. is on BOTH arms.
Sleep or watch TV are good activities to do that doesn’t involve using the hand or missing it.
Once you feel better, try to do whatever you do before slowly, taking pauses, you won’t be great as before because you are doing the thing again [drawing, texting, writting, ect] and your arm is already weak for not using force.
I’m actually with Tendonitis, healing slowly… I dont want anybody else to fall on this because they don’t know/they forget.
I live with eternal tendonitis; It come back eventually so i gotta be carefull… I failed this time Uu
