Some people just tend develop a lot of extra scar tissue, you might be one of those.
I wish they would have suggested that you not continue with the ball playing...
I wish my drs would have stressed how my multiple RSIs could become a chronic issue like TOS , but none mentioned anything like that.
1 dr did say I should not continue doing repetitive work , but the WC took him off my case at that point..
But I might have listened if many of them had said the same thing.
But it is hard to give up things we love doing..
I don't know if the sx you are having now are scar tissue related or not.
have you been doing any PT or self care gentle stretching?
