Scott, that's the EXACT pills I was taking. It's quite possible with your less severe injury that they may start working for you a lot sooner than mine did. I was doing 3 a day, with food.

It's possible that you may also heal faster than I did if your playing schedule and technique is different to mine. At the time, I was playing in a fairly high energy 5 piece, real drums, etc, and was doing no arranger playing (chord LH at changes, and little else) and also was doing a fair bit of LH bass as well as my usual 'two right hands' approach to live gigging. So, I was working it pretty hard.

The worst thing is, after years of playing, it proved SO difficult to change my technique, and stay off the thumb and not tuck it under for the scales, etc.! To be honest, I failed miserably. But you sound like you are catching it early.

Immobilize it 100% when not playing, some ibuprofen to handle pain management and a bit of help with the anti-inflammatory aspects too, and then the Turmeric pills. I'd take a second look at the doctor's other more invasive solutions if you don't feel an improvement in a month, probably less. It worked like a charm for me, and I had it MUCH worse than you are describing, Scott.

Best of luck.

All that crap will have side effects, just don't play the KB , play mp3, everybody else does... sofa no one will know the difference.. rotf2 Have you ever thought of taking VSt. that might cure it, works well for Billy..keeps the arrangers at bay!!

Diki,
Because the Solaray brand Turmeric 'special formula' worked even for your much more severe case of trigger thumb,
I rushed back to my local vitamin store to buy it. I'm going to follow your 3x/day for 2 months regiment to the letter in hopes it cures the problem as well as it did for you. The one thing I need to avoid though (at least for now) is the ibuprofen, aspirin, or nsaids, as these anti-inflammatory medications can trigger tinitis (ringing of the ears), of which I'm just recovering from as well. I suppose tendinitis and tinnitus are the occupational hazards of our chosen trade.

Yes, I thought it was fantastic and 'uniquely' British too. I esp. noted the appreciative tribute paid to your National Health Service (NHS). Why can't we in America get health care together?! confused1
Great British history of music tribute too. clap
I suspect many Americans may not have got the half of it, but having recently become an anglo-phile I think I appreciated it more now than I would have a few years back before we met you and my other sz buddies on the other side of the pond.

I had a good laugh seeing the 'one fingered' keyboard playing by Rowan Atkinson (aka: Mr. Bean). rotfl
. . . and his keyboard wasn't even an arranger. shocked grin

Boo, unfortunately frown YouTube took down the clip due to
a copyright claim by the international Olympic committee.
Last night, I was lucky enough to see the
entire 3 hour BBC broadcasted Olympic Opening Ceremony on YouTube without commercial interruption. clap
Unfortunately that clip got removed from YouTube as well.

Our American network NBC aired it later in the evening, but regretfully chock full of annoying commercials, which imo ruined the flow of the show. mad
