Hand pain causing problems - ideas?
Lately I've been having difficulty with a lot of things due to pain and instability in my finger joints. I'm struggling to stay on top of my schoolwork because it hurts to write for long periods of time, and as a physics student I have to do a lot of pencil-and-paper work so typing isn't an option. I can't practice violin very much either, which is slowing my progress in lessons and disappointing my teacher. And I can't knit for long periods, which is frustrating since it's a new-ish skill for me (started about a year ago) and I want to be able to get good at it. Does anyone have things they do that help with hand issues? I just want to do my normal activities without getting aches in my fingers or worrying that my thumb is going to sublux (which I don't think it has, but sometimes it feels like it really wants to!!)
