[IP] musicians with DM/playing injuries

Just wondering if any of you musician folks out there have playing injuries (tendonitis, carpal tunnel, ulnar nerve issues) and if you think your DM plays a part in it. I've been playing acoustic bass for 20 years now, and a few years ago (couple years after diagnosis) started getting elbow pain, tingling in fingers. It's pretty uncommon for someone to get injured after so many years of healthy and strong playing, and after going to a bunch of specialists, I concluded it must be related to DM. I'm more careful these days with stretching and don;t play 6 hour jazz gigs anymore. But I still have flare-ups and this is what I do for a living. What do y'all do?
