Thanks for all the input! I first had this problem when I was about 10 years old, and the doctor I saw said it was "overuse". At that point, I decided that doctors were only good for giving people medical bills, and quit complaining. Last year I saw a physical therapist who claimed it was epicondilitis after my wife prodded me (elbow problem), and proceeded to breakdown the tissue in my elbows. They ended up hurting so much that I avoided activity with my arms at all cost. As such, due to the inactivity, my arms got better. As soon as I started using my arms again to paddle/work, the problem began again. Now I'm just hoping to find the right problem and fix it. That being said, everyone I have spoke with about this problem says that it couldn't possibly be carpal tunnel syndrome. Although they haven't exactly been correct in diagnosing the problem either. Don't know if it helps but I'm 31 years old. Thanks again for all the input!!
