WRIST ADDICTION


My co-worker woke up this morning with a big swelling in the wrist. Came to work with decorated hand.
What: DeQuervain's Tenosynovitis
Why: Excessive use of the wrist

And I thought Carpal Tunnel Syndrome was the only danger due to bad computer working posture.

Shudder at the thought of being "out of hand", ever since I fractured one back in school.
Right hand: Can't eat!
Left hand: Can't wash!!

Find myself taking my hands off the keyboard every chance I get!
Little shivers passing down my elbow!!
