    I went through this Jules. I had to take a break from the drawing and typing, an luckily it healed. I also take a lot of supplements through the guidance of my holistic MD.
    I also started holding the wacom in my lap and this helped.
    I would be sure to consult a qualified physician before you do anything else dear lady.

    Sorry to hear that Jules. Occupational hazard many of us with human bodies go through. I have found in my case that it can often be traced back to behavior and when I track it, I find that I was sitting wrong for a long while being intense about working or playing on the computer, on the guitar etc. And when I change, the behavior changes, and it heals on its own. I hope it's that simple for you to find the cause and that it is simply a behavior thing.

    It may well be worth a trip to the doctor though.

    Blessings on that.

    Jules, carpel tunnel affects your hand only, mostly the thumb side, Ulnar nerve (elbow) problems often effect the pinky side. Because your shoulder is hurting as well I'd say it was your neck. Ergonomics and posture young lady!
    Seriously I spent years with chiropractors, osteopaths and physiotherapists with a similar set of problems. They all said it was my neck and posture related.
    Turned out to be something totally unexpected for me but all those symptoms point towards spondylitis. Sit up straight!
