Thank you for the excellent advice. I do believe it’s a nerve problem. My teacher has caught me with my wrist a little too high at times but only ever on my right hand and only rarely. Yet both hands, particularly both thumbs, are sore. I also have aches in both of my elbows, despite not playing for almost two weeks. I’m on a course of anti-inflammatories and if those don’t help I’ll take the next step.

What’s more depressing than the pain is that my new Thormahlen harp is being delivered next week and I’m devastated to think that I won’t ever be able to play it. 🙁 Any bit of hope is appreciated.
