look up any word, like cunt:
 
1.
1. When your picking/strumming arm gets noticeably larger from playing bass, or you get cuts/blisters/dimples on your hands from playing.

2. When one feels ignored, or as if they don't get enough credit, as bassists are often overlooked despite being a huge part in a bands sound, just like a guitarist/drummer/keyboardist/vocalist/etc.
I got a bad case of bassist syndrome.... hug me?
