I'm a long time crappy guitar player but playing daily up to an hour or 2. Recently, I'm getting forearm pain, 1st in my strumming arm, but now also in my cording arm. Not sure what's the cause, I play sports(basketball, mostly), and do a fair amount of manual labour. My grip has gotten pretty weak and painful, I wonder if you guitarists ever deal with this if you play a lot. I know I should get a better guitar, I'm mainly playing a crappy student quality nylon string so have to use more pressure, but still...any comments, jeers, sympathy???...

If all is well with your arm, you’re probably just exercising muscles you usually don’t. They are going to be sore after a workout. Drink lots of water and keep your hands warm. Allow your hands to warm up before you start. Sure, you could have carpal tunnel going on but try warming up a bit first and see if that helps.
