    I'm 70 years old really starting to slow down. Many health problems these days.. Bad back, type 2 diabetes, worlds of pain. Well for the past two weeks or so, the fingers of my left hand have gone numb. What do you suggest... that I continue to play in or should I stop playing? I'm going to be with my pain specialist on the 14th so that would be a question for them.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Continue as long as you can.

    I'm 65.

    I have type 2 diabetis; high blood pressure; went through stage 3 colon cancer.......survived.......2 1/2 years later had stage 4 colon cancer.......survived.

    I have blood clots in both arms and my left leg.

    I'm still self employed.

    I drive 200+ miles a day.

    I gig at least 2x a week.

    Do what makes you happy.

    ******I'm driving my 41' motor home for some time off this weekend************

    Numb all the time or when you play?

    Is your guitar strap hitting a nerve where it sits on your left shoulder/neck area? My fingers go numb on me when the strap sits and pinches a nerve. I readjust where it sits and the numbness goes away.
