I lost the use of my left thumb in 2005, it was impossible to pick up a saucer with the pain.

The specialist told me that various types of people can control the accumulative effect ie a musician or athletic individuals. His point was exercise and diet can help prevent joints from ceasing up. Sure one will get ugly swollen knuckles etc but when inflammation subsides it is possible to resume playing music.

Obviously various medication necessary and some side effects but that's life. I am back playing again with vengeance for as long as I can.
