Tennis Elbow and Tendonitis when Cycle Touring
Update: So it's not carpal tunnel syndrome but Tennis elbow and tendonitis. I find it weird because my arms are never stretched but always a bit bend like in the picture. Got a Bandage now and will rest the arm two more weeks.
My boyfriend and I have been travelling 7000km in 5 months without any major problems or injuries (touch wood). BUT since we had to disassemble our bikes for the first flight I am not in the ideal sitting position anymore because I developed a strong pain in my left wrist which I never had before.
My saddle is adjusted the same but my handlebars are not it seems. At first, I thought it was but then this pain started and I am trying to readjust it to the original position but I don't seem to get it right (I had to take off the grips and outer and inner bar ends etc.
Now I was wondering if I have pain in my wrist which is spreading all the way up to the flexor muscles (or the other way around). Do I stretch my arms too much or too little? Do I have to adjust my handles (Ergon gp2) more low or more up? I am thankful for any ideas :)
