Sorry if this is in the wrong area, but for the older aged members , Tel and me included we have all heard of the usual painful problems, bad back knees etc.
But recently I have noticed the pain in my right (yes I'M RIGHT HANDED) arms wrist shoulders due to I think of being right handed using hammers .screwdrivers , manhandling equipment, you must get the picture.
I,m retired now so it's not a bother to me workwise just wondering ,are there any older members that suffer from right or left handed muscle problems , or left if you are that way inclined, and is there anyway of defeating his problem.
It causes me pain at night and during the day, anything thing the younger members can do to avoid this painful experience, believe it aint funny, if my experience is any thing to go by, take care Guys look after your bodies, making dosh is not the B all and end all of life, use the PEP and don't worry what others say, and good luck.

I had been suffering carpel tunnel, back pains and knee pain since about 36

I’m 41

I was advised to start taking turmeric capsules everyday

never really believed in all that guff

Gave it a try though and must say the‘re fantastic, really helps, the pains basically gone nowadays

been taking them for about 3 years now

no substitute for not taking care of yourself whilst young though

Most impact tools trigger the R A (depressing words .)
Swinging a hammer when tired , was my favorite for more jolt .
( cold normally plays mine up , so I sleep sweaty. )
So I can actually get out of bed in the morning !

I had my right elbow re-built about fifteen years ago, it was more painful when I woke up than during the day, it was the beginning of the Arthritis that now pervades most of my joints, take notice of your mother and don't stay out all night in a damp atmosphere. 😇

Probably whilst trying to get into places and doing things your body is not designed for
i knew i shouldn't have gone caving every sunday ( when i was younger and thinner) some of the tight squeezes we got into were horrendous. and with ice-cold water pouring into wetsuit.

I think my elbow problem was caused by twenty years of playing Squash, Golf and Skiing, knees by Rugby and Skiing, but that does not explain the Arthritis in my big toes. ⛷🤔
