Hi,

I'm new to the forum. I'm definitely want to get in comics like everyone else. I don't know if this is the correct place to post, but hopefully this thread can be moved to the correct location.

Anyways, my question is regarding: Carpal Tunnel. Does any artist in this forum have this problem? If so, what kind of treatments or remedies have helped?

I've had Carpal for 2 years. It's somewhat "mild". It doesn't hurt bad, but I feel the numbing sensation. I have to take frequent brakes. So if anybody can help, please let me know.

Welcome!!

I wish I could help you, but I have no experience with Carpal Tunnel.

Seems to me I read about one of the pros with that problem at some time or another. I'll try to find the article.

Good luck and post some of your stuff!

I suggest the last recommendation. Switch hands. Doesn't take too long to adjust to using your left, just a pain trying to develop those muscles.
