It’s not easy. It’s like walking on a balance beam - stay exactly centered, and it’s OK. Stray just a little to either side and things are not so great. The neurologist I saw seemed to think it’s no big deal, since it’s not life threatening...but it is “happiness threatening”. I don’t know how it is for others, but for me it leads to tendinitis bad enough to wake me up in the middle of the night several times if I play more than a few minutes that day. Of course that makes it really unpleasant to practice. Actually, that’s not right. I’m OK while I practice. I’m not OK afterwards. You might say that I like to practice - I don’t like to have practiced. There’s like a runners high while I’m playing that makes it not hurt...but only while I’m playing.
