It's so frustrating... I had dartitis two years ago, I arshly could hit the target (well, actually I'm not a good player even when I'm fine XD). My luck was that it affected only the left arm (I'm left-handed), and that I'm right-eye dominant, so I became ambidextrous and started using the right arm. After many months of relax the left-one forgot the dartitis.

About 6 years ago I woke up one sat morning with a stiff neck to one side and I could hardly use my darts arm [I was a good player having played super and county league.also winning tornament ], not being able to hit the board for weeks I eventually got back to playing, but my darts have gradually deteriorated. I have been told that a trapped nerve in my neck was the cause. I have now developed Dartitus unable to control or let go of the dart at certain times in a game my darts are appalling and I often feel laughed at when throwing.I am totally depressed at the situation having once being a really good player.has anyone got advice I am determined not to give in.

Had to bail out of a darts match last minute as I couldn't hit the board in practice (hit twice in 12 throws!). Going to get some heavy darts (45g!) and hit the practice board when I move into my new house.

hi I have had dartsitis for my second season now - now that I think about it, it started when my sister in law became very ill. oh dear I will try some weightlifting but I really just like many others just dont want to play (but we are short of players... grrr)

I have had dartitis now for 12 years on and off. I hadnt played for about four years. My first season went ok, needed to home them together a bit better but no sight of the dreaded problem. Just finished this season. It has become so bad now that I nearly launch myself instead of the dart. Somebody in our team finds this most amusing so they entered me into a competition. (Havent played competition for 15 years). Played last night, ended up giving the game to my opponent, my dartitis is worse than ever. Dont think I will play anymore. After 12 years and trying so many things, nothing seems to work. BTW I have no stress problems and didnt when this started. The only thing that stresses me out is this condition.

dartitis is one of the most embarasing things that can happen to any dart player.I have had it on and of for a few years now and have finally decided to stop playing for a while it feels as if when i am throwing its not really me but i do belive that stress in your normal life has a massive part to play in it.

have tried everything guys and just out of blue an idea came up.think this sounds daft but by throwing 2 darts (1 in each hand)at the same time actualy gets ur arm to throw in line with your weak arm.i did this for days just to get the feeling of relaxing my arm.one arm will do as the other arm does.kept at it and then mixed it up with throwing with my good arm then back to 2 rms.now when i hesitate with my throw i will lift my weaker arm (left) to the side and as im throwing i will move my left arm out to the side instead of throwing it forward with my dart arm.just moving both arms symiltaniously.1 arm does wat the other arm does.lol this may sound daft guys and it may be hard to understand wat im actually trying to explain.its not a cure but when my arm goes into deadlock and just will not go forward i just lift my left arm up and throw out to the side along with my throwing arm.try it lol
