Apple, I just read through both Chopin Scherzo 1, 2, and Schubert Sonata d959 nonstop. My shoulders and neck hurt like crazy and though mental stress is released, body pain is causing new stress... Has this ever happened to you?

try sitting lower for a bit of time.. sometimes a change in posture (just for variation) helps. The Scherzos would give me a headache if i could read thru them.

Virtually everyone that I know gets upper back/shoulder pain when sight-reading. Alternate playing some pieces that are memorized.
