Taylor Swift Suffers Hand Cramps In Recent Concert

A fan recorded the moment on their phone and posted it to X from the show in Edinburgh, Scotland. In the video clip, Swift stopped playing her guitar and looked down at her hand. It was cramped in a strange position, and Swift seemed surprised at the situation.

“My hand is frozen in a weird cramp. This has never happened before; I’m really sorry,” she said as she tried to relieve the pain in her hand and loosen up the cramp. The singer joked she was “forming a claw,” and her fans laughed and cheered as she worked out the cramp in her hand.

Fans reacted to the moment, and some had some thoughts on what happened:

  • “Get that girl a banana & some water”
  • “I can relate and won’t play guitar outside below a certain temp. Mostly cause it’s bad for the instrument but also because the fingers/hands don’t work great in chilly weather.”
  • “I hope she gets some hand massages in between shows. Gotta prevent arthritis early on!”

What Can Cause A Hand To Cramp Like Taylor Swift?

This moment was not unusual because Taylor Swift often used her hands in her concerts. Hand spasms or cramps that cause hands to freeze up like this can be caused by overuse, often seen in repetitive motions like typing or playing musical instruments.

It can also be caused by dehydration, and cold weather can worsen it. Many things could contribute to it, including overuse, weather conditions, and possible dehydration during a long commute.

Luckily, Swift got the cramp worked out and finished her concert as planned.
