Can't hit streams at all from fingerlock

I have very severe fingerlock, to the point where I can't even hit the first 2 notes of a stream. Like let's say a stream comes up after a few sliders, I'll hit the first note then my fingers will just freeze up. I recently got a new keyboard with different switches, but even before this my fingerlock was still just as severe. So many people have said that "you just need to keep playing and it will go away" but it's to the point where I can't FC anything and i'm considering quitting the game purely because of how bad my fingerlock is. I really need some help or some kind of solution! Please!

Edit: I have been decaying a LOT from this, I've started playing mania a lot because of this problem, but I wanna go back to standard. Usually when I do hit streams it's mostly cause i'm trying my hardest to hit it and end up mashing and just getting lucky.

play streamy maps, try to alternate as a warmup to loose up your fingers. If stamina is your problem then it's play more.

I'm using a logitech K100 membrane keyboard and I can stream just fine.

Fingerlock in itself isn't a bad thing as it shows that you have the fingercontrol needed for streaming.

You need to get used to alternating between your fingers, try playing alt maps, for example:

https://osu.ppy.sh/beatmapsets/353398#osu/778603 (watch out, kind of nsfw background)

Here is Monstratas old, deleted version of Alternator Marathon out of my song folder, it has each song in its own difficulty, so you have plenty of BPM and spacings to practice from: https://puu.sh/CuZ3D/e4955b0014.zip

After some time, your fingers should kind of be used to the alternation, if you have trouble with tripples, you can try to play this: https://osu.ppy.sh/beatmapsets/27107#osu/95431
The "Hot Springs" difficulty keeps using different patterns: Singletaps, doubles, tripples and streams. Note that, if you can't play this yet, you might simply not be able to play at this bpm yet. If you still need any kind of help, you can send me a message ingame. Note that we might not see eachother online at the same time due to a massive difference in timezones.

Thank you so much for the advice! I’m not home at the current moment, but I will definitely try this when I get home later!

After trying this for a couple days, I've gotten much much better at streaming! My fingerlock st ill happens sometimes, but when I do alt maps for like 10 to 15 minutes and then go back to normal maps, it's practically gone! Thank you so much for this advice!

Practice alternating and warm up properly.
