Been having pain in my fingers for a couple of months. When I wake up, fingers are stiff and painful. As I go through the day the get better. Some discomfort when swinging especially left handed superspeed training. Been taking it easier the past few
Weeks but no real improvement. Don’t want to stop golfing but may need to take an extended break. Hate to do that since we are starting to enter peak season and I am only half way through old league. I am sure the doctor would just tell me to stop playing for a while. Hate getting older!

Sounds like arthur has come to viist --- arthritis.  Try taking some Aleve and see if that abates the issue.

is it just me who hates people using my home toilet/john?

I mean people like the plumber/electrician/delivery guy/repair man etc who always seem to arrive at my house with a full bladder.

Ok I know we can all get caught short but it seems a regular occurrence lately, and to quote a good Scottish saying "it gives me the dry boak"! (makes me feel sick)

I just returned from my chiropractor a little while ago.  My lower back has been acting up and pain was transferring over to my left hip.  I could barely swing a golf club and sucked when I could.  I wen to see doc and he snapped everything back in place and I feel better than a stud bull in a pen full of heifers! 😍 🐄

Bar Harbor with my wife and daughter for the week has been fantastic. I packed my clubs to play Kebo Valley but decided against it. There will be more golf, she’s growing too quickly for my liking.

Pretty sure naproxen is generic Aleve. Maybe Aleve is higher dose, though?

I believe they are the same and larger doses can be had they prescription.

Yes, naproxen is the generic for Aleve.  OTC dose is the same; two a day.  The prescription dose is two/twice a day, but I don't recommend it.  I did that for awhile after my foot surgery.  Tough on your kidneys.  Might have to take a stool softener; I use Swiss Kriss.   

I shouldn't know about these things!!!
