I am having inner arm pain and I think between paper sorting with finger action for a few days straight and my nightly knitting I over did it.
So, I guess I have to take a week or so break to get it to heal up. Cause I sure don't want to give up knitting. Hopefully, there will be light at the end of the tunnel.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions on this topic.
! I'm working on PC all day long and sort papers all together and knit a lot, so it got really bad. I try to exercise and give my arms some rest whenever i can (my both hands are hurting). The numbness has passed, but i still experience the pain in my elbows. I tried to give it a break for a week and it seemed to help and then got back. I'm not trying to discourage you, i'm just thinking it needs more to it than rest. I take breaks and do some exercise and i'm also thinking of going to a physiotherapist, but i'll do it later, because i'm going abroad in a few weeks and to have the appointment canceled would be too bad. I'm also much more aware of my posture. I realized that i was knitting all cramped up, tense. I try to relax and put my arms down a bit while knitting. I'm also trying to improve my sitting position at work and not to lift anything heavier than 2-3 lbs.
Hope it will work out for you
