So I know that people who are not used used to practicing a lot get back pains and stuff but I think mine is something slightly more crazy. So I had a blister on my hand from field hockey, which happened to be right where i rest my flute. (this is my left hand) I had an audition in 2 days and I was practicing but it was hurting too mcuh to play so being the creative and sometimes stupid person that I am I decided that if I presss on it harder it would not hurt. And amazingly it did not but then I pressed too hard for too long and my ligament is torn in the first finger of my left hand. I did not play for a week but as I have a test this week I decided it would be a good idea to pracice some. It seemed fine but I did not even make it half way throuhg the exposition of Mozarts Concerto in G movement 1 when the underside of my lower arm started to go numb. After practing for a bit more the bisep in my upper also started to hurt, then pull, then go numb. I cannot miss this test.
So long story short, I was particullarly stupid and now am a little bit unsure what to do. I know I cannot miss this test but I do not know how long my arm will last. Does anyone have any suggestions as to stretches or anything else that might help stop the numbness?
