A few years ago, I was rear ended while on my motorcycle, sitting at a red light. Since the accident, I have started having issues with stenosis (narrowing of the passage in the vertibrae that the spinal cord goes through) and some neck ligament issues. The stenosis is on the left side of C4, C5, and C6.
Two issues are caused by this. The bundle of nerves for your left arm comes from these vertibrae and most of the time my left hand is somewhat numb, and sometimes has that wonderful pins and needles tingle. I can still play with the numbness, it actually hasn't effected my muscle memory thank god.
The other issue is my person PITA. I've had to put away the SBG1300TS, the LP's, and anything that could be heavy, as the weight on my shoulder gets to be hell after a set. My strat, SG, and Artcore are managable for me to do a full night of gigging, though I pay for it for a day or two later..
Has anyone else had to deal with these issues? What did you do that helped?
Just chasing a curiosity, and thanks in advance..
