    pain

    I've recently been working on using my wrist to pick. When I'm done however, I have a dull pain in my wrist... is this bad? I also have a slight pain in my elbow.

    I focus on making sure everything is relaxed, however this still occurs.

    I've also noticed that when i get to higher speeds I start using my fingers a lot more instead of my wrist. And sometimes, although i feel relaxed, it looks like my forearm is participating in the picking

    My opinion on this is that if its dull don't worry about it too much, just be cautious, but if its sharp stop immediatly!!!! and evaluate what you need to do, rest, stop for a couple days, see a doctor? these are just my own opinions though so use it at your own discretion.
