Has anyone on this forum been diagnosed with chronic exertional compartment syndrome in their forearms?
If so, what kind of test was administered, and what was your treatment?
I have suffered from what I thought was tendinitis for 17 years, but after new physical therapy work and an orthopedic surgeon, they are wondering if I have a rare compartment syndrome.
Chronic burning deep in the center of my forearms.
Shooting pain while playing fast passages or playing for over 45 minutes.
Chronic sensitivity/pain in muscles and nerves in arms when pressure is applied.
Pain tends to fade to a dull burn with rest but symptoms immediately return when I return to playing.
Before you ask, I now play proper Salzedo technique but suffered the initial damage playing a non-standard technique invented/taught by my first teacher who claimed she was teaching Grandjany. 😓
