I have noticed lately what I think is arthritis creeping into the joints of my fingering hand, much to my complete dismay.I am 58, and started the violin again about three years ago, after playing as a child, and having a pretty fair amount of talent. The violin is my passion, and I am pretty devastated by this. Of course I will see a doctor, but if it is confirmed, do any of you know something natural that can help with this? My fear is I'll be told to live with it; just take aspirins, or be put on steroids, etc. And perhaps that's what it will come down to, but I thought I'd at least check with you guys in the meantime. Any of you been thru this?
