Thank you for your question. Your symptoms could be due to writer's cramp that is due to involuntary muscle contraction called dystonia. This may be affected by writing specific letters, the position of the hand, and is often relieved when you stop writing. It is difficult to find any specific cause for writer's cramp, however Botox injections may be some help to prevent the contraction from occurring. I would recommend evaluation by a neurologist that may benefit you. I hope you find the information I have provided useful. Take Care.
