I've been struggling with tendonitis and nerve problems in both arms for 2 years. I'm only 20 but at the time of onset was gaming with a terrible position and playing lots of drums and piano. I find it extremely frustrating that throughout this forum the views on rsi and tendonitis are contradictory to each other. Some say they are both tms, some say rsi is and tendonitis isn't, some say vice versa, some say both are physical conditions. A lot of people also say stuff like "don't listen to doctors but get it checked out to make sure it's nothing serious". Like, how can I do one without the other lol, how can I get it checked out and when the doctor confidently says you have tendonitis, ignore them. What's the point of this? I have heaps of trigger points, physio says my tendons are "crunchy", tight, weak, micro traumatised, cupping shows "stagnant blood", etc. Can tms cause these very strong indicators of physical issue. I have been doing physio for 7 months and it has helped but as soon as I start doing the things I used to do all that progress seems to disappear. I also haven't experienced the symptom imperative and am weaker in grip strength than normal. I have an anxiety disorder and would not be surprised if this is tms, but the inconsistent views on rsi with so many saying completely different things makes me wonder if this is just too dangerous to follow given the general cencus that rsi must be carefully managed. At a loss, at my wits end, just wanna play in my old bands and make music. Sorry for the bitterness but my "prime" has been dominated by incapacity and pain.
