Well, it has happened.  My worst fear as a string instrument player, let alone any other instrument.

A couple of years ago I had noticed some pain in my left hand and wrist area after playing any of my instruments for about an hour.  I would chalk it up as getting on in years, but this is not the case after all.  The accident I had to my left arm a few weeks ago did not help the situation

After numerous tests over the past year, since 2012, and a lot of therapy, it seems I am loosing dexterity in my left hand.  It seems an unexplained loss.  In other words the doctors haven't a clue why this has happened.

When I am playing now I wear a wrist brace which seems to help a bit. I have a chiropractor who is licensed in that Chinese needle thing, and that seems to be helping a bit.

My therapist who is a concert violinist as well as Celtic 'fiddler' has been working with me and my fiddle to see how we can build strength and enable me to get back the intonation I have lost which has to do with my finger strength.

As my father in-law, who is now 92 yrs. of age, says...these things are set to try us.

Well, on the bright side of things, it has not stopped me from teaching, and I thank God for that.

More news to follow as there is progression.
