I had a late night last night. I had played my violin several times during the day, and had no problems. Today, I woke up late (as is to be expected after getting to bed at 12:30) and had a slow start. When I tried playing my violin this afternoon, I felt a little sluggish, like you do when your a little sick or tired. I thought nothing of it, but now, I feel like my fingers are slowing down.
I haven't played since then, but when I try tapping my fingers around on the table or whatnot, my fingers are unable to keep a steady beat. Typing on a slab of glass also known as a smartphone is a chore; my fingers seem to have lost all of their speed and agility. I type at like 15 words per minute all of the sudden. It's like the myelin sheaths in my fingers spontaneously disappeared!
There is no pain involved at all, although when I try to tap on the table quickly my wrist can feel a bit... swollen? You know that feeling that you get when you move your fingers too fast, except my fingers shouldn't be moving too fast. They're going comparatively slower.
Do you think it's related to the late night or the violin playing or anything? Should I try to avoid the violin until this blows over, or will moving my fingers help this to go away?
