I played osu! constantly, but I went on a 2 week vacations and now that I'm back, the back part of my hand hurts when playing. I single tap with middle finger.
Does anyone have a idea why is this happening? Any way of fixing it?

You lost some stamina is all, make sure to properly warm up before playing, do some hand exercises before playing to prevent any straining and take breaks often. Don't say "I play intensive 8 star maps to warm up" I've done that for a long time when I was playing and I couldn't preform as well as when I played some low charts first. If you have pain in your hand take a break and don't play, also try some different hand positions.

Links for hand exercises? And also I warm up with my average maps that are 4.8-5.2. I've tried different hand positions and It also hurts, the one that hurts less is a kind of Hvick position. It is weird to me because before the vacations it didn't hurt :\

Before play the game is really useful to do this.

yea just warm up before playing and let your hand get back into it naturally after the 2 week break

Also take more breaks, alot of short breaks better than long ones.
