    Ok, I'm talking about the lips. Not the checks or the corners. The lips should NEVER hurt. You are doing something WRONG. At some point you will pick the horn up and nothing will come out. You will not be able to get a buzz. GET SOME HELP FOR THIS RIGHT AWAY.

    I agree with Bob. Pain says strain, potentially damaging strain if it continues. You need to find out what you are doing wrong and at this point, it is best if there is someone (ideal a trumpet instructor) in person observing your playing to give appropriate feedback.

    Let me ask you a similar question... Let's say you are weight lifting daily, and it has taken you 6 months to work up to bench pressing 400 lbs. But the time commitment to work out every day is just not as motivating as the time demand changes of recent job advances. So you quit for a year. After a year, the job has stabilized, everything is running smoothly, and you remember the feeling of how nice it was to have toned muscle. So you go back to the bench press, place on 400 lbs of weight and start lifting.

    What do you think will happen with this lifting attempt? Why do you think lips, comprised of he same skeletal muscle would have any different response?
