need help! dartitis update:
My dear freind randy has just came down with the dreaded dartitis, he’s tried a whole lot of things to fix it... and I mean a lot.. anyone know anything other than these. Any help is big help... thanks in advance!!

What we tried.
1. Throw at a mirror without dart... works until he goes to board,
2. Throw with eyes closed, works until he goes to throw with his eyes open.
3. Fight through it until it goes away.. it’s been a month with no real improvement..
4. Throw with the lights low, complete bust..
5. Throw a different set for a while to change rhythm... bust.

Update:
got great news!! after months of throwing left handed, its gone!!!! he has been throwing right handed for about two weeks now, with no issues. so for anyone out there who has dartitis... THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE!! dont quit fighting!!

throw with left hand for a few games or for half hour or so might work, or maybe just take a month off, i am sure other nutz will have better advice but all the best i feel for your mate

I got that b*****d as a young lad with great potential,to almost nervous wreck anywhere near a dartboard.
Also I would have liked a mate like yourself, what I found out when first afflicted was guys ( some were close mates ) took great pleasure in seeing me suffer. After a good few years of severe beatings they got they’re revenge. I tried my dam hardest to overcome it,but eventually gave up for a very long time.
So well done for trying to help your friend. That’s true friendship ...

This might not work for your mate but no harm trying.

My throw was almost Gary Anderson like straight up to eye and follow thro.
So I had to adapt here’s how I throw now.

Bring dart up to eye level ... I draw my arm back, go forward, come back, go forward, come back then follow through when I feel my dart is going to go straight.
I count 1,2,3, and usually release on the 4th count. I concentrated on only hitting fat 20 at first.

This worked for me and got my confidence back hope it helps.
