    Years ago, I had pain in my wrist and elbow from spraying alot of lawns per day. To solve this, we switched away from ChemLawn guns and went to Tejet lawn guns cuz they weigh about 1/3rd the weight. It worked.

    Weedeating/edging + vibrations: wearing gloves has helped us with this.

    I have problems daily with the numbness and tingling in both my hands and fingers. I also get a burning which extends down through primarily my middle fingers. I also have what someone has called trigger finger. This is in my left middle finger. At times its strung so tight the it sort of snaps out extended or snaps to close. I contribute most of the problems to the fact that I hold onto the mower very tightly. I guess I'm pycho but holding on tight allows me to mow straight lines.

    The pain runs up to my elbow and actually wakes me up from a sound sleep.
    Also my fingers fall asleep when I play the guitar or bass now.

    My right hand goes to sleep every time I weedeat. Feels like thousands of needles going thru my hands and wrist.

    I have a tennis elbow problem from when my Permagreen hit a gopher hole.

    I have numbness in my right middle and ring finger. It is linked to a disc pressing on my spinal cord between C6 and C7.

    Thats because the nerve endings in your hands are angry at you. lol

    I get it too. Sucks really bad.

    I have a cyst in my right wrist that reoccures occasionally called a Ganglion Cyst. Really makes my right forearm weak for a week or two. It also gets kinda painful.

    I may have tennis elbow but my girlfriend has Visa wrist.
