Subject: RE: Help: when you hold a flute...
Are your hands and wrists relaxed? Try raising your elbow and see if that takes some of the pressure off the wrist. I had the devil of a time learning to play my flute without pain- in various parts of my hands and wrists. I found I had to limit my practice time- only playing until the pain started. At first I could only play one tune but I've worked my way up to longer sessions.
