Pain in forearm near elbow
Lately have had a dull pain near my elbow on my inner left forearm (fretting hand), the area highlighted in blue in the attached image. I fear its tendonitis from what I've read, so I'm going to get it checked out as soon as I can. I even stopped playing this week to see if it would help (which it has to a certain degree, but I know there's got to be a better solution).
So, I've got a couple of questions in regards to this pain. Has anyone else experienced this and how have you relieved the pain? Is it a result of bad posture and not being relaxed enough? Would a wider neck help? I've got fairly large hands, at times I feel I shouldn't be a mando player. Would a radiused fret board help? I've heard Grisman had some issues at one time with tendonitis and a radiused board helped him. Maybe this is my body telling me I need a new mandolin. Thanks for your help.
