Have you looked into Alexander Technique? I was having severe problems with my right hand a few years ago, and I started practicing Alexander Technique and reading up on it. Within about 2-3 months my problem went away and I have yet to experience again. I know that vocalists and string players use Alexander Technique extensively to improve breath support and take stress off of overworked/overpracticed joints and muscles; why not extend it into tuba players? Good luck!
