Sorry to butt in, but could I ask you a question? What does that feel like? Is it a sharp pain or short of an ache? I'm asking because earlier in the year, I was doing a ton of crocheting, but then my wrist started to get achy. Every time I crocheted it would start to ache, so I quit crocheting for several months. It didn't bother me knitting because it's a different motion, but I was still super careful, and pretty much quit all yarn crafts for a while. Now I am crocheting again, but never for more than an hour at a time (for the day and usually less). Sometimes I'm fine and sometimes it will start to ache - at which point I stop. I'm just wondering if I am starting to get carpal tunnel in my wrist. It's freaking me out a bit, but I really don't want to give up crochet! I love it.
