... I enjoy a certain amount of forearm and wrist pain when riding so I dose up on painkillers before I set off (paracetamol 1000mg and ibuprofen 200mg). These seem to have some beneficial effect, but not 100%.
Is anyone else in the same boat, and if so what do you take and does it work?
Sammy, I had something similar a few years ago, and would consume lots of Ibuprofen before, during, and after rides. Then I read about "nerve-gliding exercises" to reduce carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel problems due to ulnar nerve entrapment. Drug-free now. Also doing several exercises and stretches daily that I learned from Bob and Brad, "the most famous physical therapists on the Internet." https://www.bobandbrad.com/
My experience, anyway. Hope that helps ...
