     I have a pretty good pile of "firewood" now. Hoping someday to finish what I've started though.

btw  Randy's comment on you being banned for 30 days, seemed to be his  to me. At least I smiled and thought that was what he meant by it.

Doesn't make much of a difference to me one way or the other. If I was banned, I'd have 20 or more hours this month freed up to do other stuff. This danged internet is a rabbit hole and time suck of the first order!! I hope to get to meet Randy, in October,  down in Georgia, at a gathering sponsered by another Forum. Hopefully, music will be the order of that week-end and not too much politics and religion...

  When did this happen? I've had many a bike lay downs and know what it means to have an angel or two protecting me from more serious damage.

Am I understanding correctly, Danny, that you hardly ever play...guitar?  That's gotta be tough.  Any surgeries in your future to get you back in playing shape?

  If I had all the surgeries people tell me I need. I would be bandaged from head to foot. I just try to let time heal things.
   Recently I had to start working hard full time again. That requires a lot of hand tool labor which causes many problems in my joints. So my fingers etc. lose dexterity and become painful to the extent that even playing a guitar is not very easy. I hope to cut back on work soon though and give my hands time to heal up.

Dan, you could also give contrast baths a try. Just remember to wear a latex glove on your fretting hand or your callouses will fall off. Trust me, they will! I have lots of problems with my hands because of 20 years of working in the trades with hand tools, so I know where you are coming from. Since my spinal cord injury, I have played guitar several hours a day and my fretting hand, especially my left index finger, flares up and gets quite painful.  I find the baths help when I get stupid and continuously work on one phrase or song hour after hour. It is free to try, so it can't hurt to give it a whirl.....

Contrast Baths

1. Alternating between warm and cold water has been found to be helpful for decreasing symptoms often seen with overuse syndrome.
2. Heat increases circulation and the ability of tissue to stretch making it easier for the nerves and tendons to glide.  
3. Cold helps decrease pain.  
SET UP:  This works well at a double kitchen sink.  You can also use the sink and one pan on the counter.
                 Fill one sink with warm water.  (105º-110º)
                 Fill the other with cold water.    (59º-68º)

1.  Soak your hand in the warm water for 10 minutes.
2.  Place your hand in the cold water for 1 minute.
3.  Return to warm water for 4 minutes.
4.  Return to cold water for 1 minute.
5.  End with at least 4 minutes of warm water.

 A minimum of twice per day is recommended, but 3-5 times a day is optimal.

 Very detailed. Jon you nailed my situation as well. Fretting hand, first finger is the most painful right now.

                                   Thanks to everyone for the tips.
     I tell you what, folks that don't read this thread miss some excellent information.

It is one of the benefits of having a wife who holds a Doctorate in Physical Therapy. She picks up treatments from different continuing ed symposiums as well as from other disciplines such as the Occupational Therapists she works with.
