Reducing Pain

Hi! I've been practicing the marimba a lot recently, and I have blisters on my fingers. My forearms are very sore and painful too (I can't even stretch them now). Could anyone give me some tips on reducing pain/preventing them in the first place? Thanks in advance!!! 

I think someone took my arrangement, what do I do?

About a month ago I uploaded my transcription of Sommarfågel by Wintergatan. Here: https://musescore.com/user/28891226/scores/5475794

I was updating my score today and decided to browse what others had done.

I stumbled upon an arrangement by JLevasier, https://musescore.com/user/19752226/scores/5519648, posted about a month after mine. It appears to be an exact copy of my arrangement, except for instrument changes and transpositions up/down octaves. Even my dynamics are there.

Obviously, I am not the original author of the piece, as it was written by the band Wintergatan. I also used two YouTube videos, which I credited in my description, to help with some of the transcription. However, some of my upload is original, as I couldn't transcribe everything perfectly. Some of the bass and violin parts are of my own doing.

I don't know much about music ownership or copyright. Since I'm not the original author, does that mean that it's okay for JLevasier to reupload my arrangement with a few minor changes? I commented on his/her upload for credit in their description. Should I have done that? Any comments on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all and have a nice day!
